Nintendo Switch owners will have a colorful platformer and a party game to choose from shortly after the console launches in March.

Developer Sumo Digital confirmed today that its slithering platformer, Snake Pass, is coming to Switch in early 2017. Jackbox Games also announced today it will bring The Jackbox Party Pack 3 to Switch “soon.”

That brings the number of Nintendo Switch games coming in 2017 to at least 36 titles.

Snake Pass is a colorful, physics-based game in which players control Noodle the snake, “slithering, curling and climbing their way through increasingly challenging worlds filled with evermore intricate obstacles,” Sumo Digital said in a release. You can watch 17 minutes of Snake Pass gameplay in the video above.

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is the latest in Jackbox’s party game series, featuring five new games that can be enjoyed by up to eight players. Watch us play one of those games, Quiplash 2, in the video below.

Nintendo Switch launches March 3. Here are the games we know are coming to Switch in 2017.
