Nintendo Switch: GO VACATION Game Review

It’s Back-To-School for everyone! If you’re bummed you didn’t get to squeeze in that last vacation, take the family on an Kawawii Island adventure with GO VACATION game which is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Enjoy over 50 co-operative and competitive activities including ATV racing, scuba diving, skateboarding, skiing, fishing, volleyball, and much more. We received a copy of the game to check it out, and my kids and I are having a blast. The game can be played solo or multi-players up to 4 players. Select from four resorts – a tropical beach, a mountain or snow resort, visit the city for extreme sports, or do activities from your personal villa. Unlock gifts from collecting stamps. You can also choose to complete daily challenges or go straight to competition mode with other players. The games are endless!

Resorts Selections

  • Marine Resort (a tropical beach where you can enjoy a variety of marine sports),
  • Mountain Resort (majestic mountain ranges and peaceful plateaus as the backdrop of your outdoor adventure),
  • City Resort (leisure games, extreme sports and motor sports),
  • Snow Resort (sparkling silver mountain with perfect ski slopes and every winter sport you can imagine), and
  • Villa Grounds (experience your own personal resort from the convenience of your villa) .


As mentioned there are over 50! There are too many to play so we haven’t tried them all. (So far the pie throwing contest is really silly, but it had us all cracking up.) They’re all short mini-games which has brought out some fun competition. Here are some of the other games you can play:
