Are you up for a challenge?

Starting on October 4 and for nine weeks following, we challenge you to take on some of the biggest games for the Nintendo Switch™ system in the Nintendo Switch Challenge.

Every Friday, a Canadian Twitch streamer will announce their Nintendo Switch Challenge in their live stream. These challenges could be anything from achieving an S+ rank evaluation on any File Report on Pt Standard difficulty or above in Astral Chain or playing The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening in hero mode and making it all the way to the third dungeon without losing all of your hearts. The streamer will aim to complete that challenge, live on their own Twitch channel - and then call on friends, foes and you to take on the same challenge.

Each week’s Nintendo Switch Challenge will be revealed by the participating Twitch streamers, as well as on this page and Nintendo of Canada’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
