The show will be coming to the Disney Channel, Disney XD and the "Disney Now" app this summer.

Nintendo follows up E3 with a TV show to promote the Nintendo Switch.

Entry is pretty simple: Submit an original video up to one minute in length, and make sure you all describe why you're the "ultimate Nintendo fans".

As is evident in the name, the show will be a competition between four families testing their worth in a variety of games for the Nintendo Switch.

According to Business Insider, the upcoming show will be titled "Nintendo Switch Family Showdown" and will bring four families together to compete with eachother in a selection of Nintendo Switch games.

Think of it like Family Feud mixed with Let's Go 8-Bit and, well, the Nintendo Switch. It will employ a number of major Switch games for the competition, such as "searching for collectibles in "Super Mario Odyssey, ' competing in head-to-head matchups in 'Mario Tennis Aces" and participating in dance-offs in 'Just Dance 2018'". Disney XD aired the EVO 2017 Super Smash Bros. tournament just a year ago.

In a recent investor Q&A, outgoing Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said, "The benchmark is not whether Nintendo Switch sales can surpass total Wii sales, but rather how we adapt and respond to changes in the market and strive to continue selling Nintendo Switch as long as possible". Winners must travel with their family (up to 4 family members) to the tournament on 8/3/18.
