The Party Pack 3 includes five games: Quiplash 2, Fakin’ It, Tee K.O., Trivia Murder Party, and Guesspionage, the latter four of which are completely new games from the studio. The Jackbox Party Packs have become popular for their accessibility, allowing anybody with a smartphone or web browser to easily join in on the action.
One question raised by the Switch version of the Party Pack 3 will lie in the consoles core feature: portability. The game requires an internet connection to start a lobby for phones to connect to, so one would assume the same will be the same for this version. Unless Jackbox puts in work to turn the Switch version into the ultimate portable party game collection that can be played anywhere, it looks like the game will still require your Switch to be on WiFi.
