This is it, boys and girls… the wait is almost over. The next-generation Nintendo Switch video game console will finally be released on Friday, March 3, and gamers all over the world will start the long process of forgiving Nintendo for releasing the travesty that was the Wii U. The Switch looks like it’s going to be a ton of fun, but there is one tiny problem with the console: there are practically no games available at launch. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the big one, and you’ve almost certainly already preordered it. But the game you’ll need if you want to play the Nintendo Switch with all your friends is 1-2-Switch.

Think of 1-2-Switch as the Wii Sports for Nintendo’s new console. It’s packed full of fun little games that you can play yourself, or go head to head with friends and family. Trust us, you’re going to need this game if you’re getting a Switch — and guess what: if you preorder 1-2-Switch on Amazon right now, you’ll save 20% off the retail price. The offer is available to all Amazon Prime subscribers, and if you don’t have Prime you can always sign up for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of this offer.

Here are a few notes about 1-2-Switch from the game’s product page:

  • Throw an impromptu party anywhere with anyone thanks to a new play style in which players look at each other-not the screen!
  • Bring the action and fun into the real world as you face off in wild-west duels, cow-milking competitions, a copycat dance-off.
  • While the action unfolds off- screen, the audience watches the players themselves instead of the screen. That makes it as hilarious to watch as it is to play – an instant party amplifier!
