  1. Eight players of the Luigi mansion 3 scream park

  2. Thank you so much for this list!!! It’s amazing just how hard it is to find this information… would love an update video too! ☺️

  3. This list is amazing! Thank you so much for putting this together!

  4. great video. 4 new games on my wishlist. one of my favorite 8 player games is Chalo Chalo

  5. Boomerang Fu is fantastic! I love it so much.😊

  6. I’m glad there are Switch games out there that allow groups of more than 4 players to play at once. It’s one of the reasons that make the Nintendo Switch stand out amongst its competitors.

  7. Great video, bought almost all games from it! Do u perhaps have some more recommendations after 2 years?

  8. Can you do Smash with 2 consoles having 4 players on each?

  9. How can you miss Virtua Racing on this list? 8 Player Split Screen is an absolute riot!!!There's also an 8 player Pengo multiplayer game, but it was Japanese only (and also only physical).

  10. I love games with more than 2 player multiplayer & had my 4 way controller back in the day for the PS1, but I'm 48 now so the only time I'm with 7 other ppl is at funerals 😅 – great video my friend 🙂 ✌️ 👌 👍

  11. Idk if anyone else noticed… But the game Retrograde wasn't included even though it's 6 players.

  12. Gang Beasts, Virtua Racing, Crashnauts, Super Mario Strikers: Battle League. But I understand these games came out after you made this video. Thank you for this awesome video.

  13. towerfall is the best multiplayer game of all time

  14. Amazing Video!!! Please make one similar for PS/Xbox!

  15. It should be possible for switch in docked mode to connnect via LAN and play local multiplayer if the game supports it! Cortect?

  16. dragon ball fighterz is fun for 3v3 tag team battles local as well

  17. Runbow is better on the wii u because the gamepad person can create platforms and such

  18. My Top 10 :- 10th : Super Bomberman R- 9th : Chiki-Chiki Boxy Racer- 8th : Pico Park- 7th : Break Are For Losers- 6th : Knight Squad- 5th : Runbow- 4th : Party Golf- 3rd : Baron Fur is Gonna Fly- 2nd : Virtua Racing- 1st : Super Smash Bros Ultimate

  19. Awesome video! Could you do one for Xbox/Playstion?

  20. Ok….so excuse my ignorance but "on 8 joy cons" translates to having 4 Nintendo Switches, right? Or can you buy extra joy cons to add to one Switch console? Do I need 4 copies of the each game if they are all in the same room? Trying to figure out the specs for a library gaming program and I only personally own a xbox. Help!

  21. I wish Duck Game could be on this list, but its 8-player update isn't on consoles yet… Ugh, it's so frustrating! My friend group loves Duck Game!

  22. It makes me wonder why does neither mario party on switch support 8 players if they did it before

  23. 6 player boomerang fu is the most fun you can have with your clothes off

  24. Can you jump in with a phone like jack in the box or need 8 controllers?

  25. Thank you for creating this! I will save your video to look back on when I have a future 8 player session! Also wanted to mention that Sega Ages Virtua Racing supports 8 players (just make sure the tv is big enough to be split into eight separate screens haha).

  26. ASTRO DUEL is missing (since you included 6player also) 🙂 would you make also 8 player 2 nintendo switch consoles (4 players each) local multiplayer? 🙂

  27. Starting to plan ahead for my annual Halloween Party, this list was excellent for it! Thank you so much!

  28. where do you find Alpaca Ball: Allstars for the switch

  29. Amazing video! Thanks for the recommendations 🙂

  30. You also forgot monopoly. I love it so much because you can just use one controller and pass it around so your don't need to buy extras.

  31. Thanks for this list! Gonna take a look at a few of these. I think the biggest and funnest 8 player game not on this list is Gang Beast. Smash Bros meets King of the Hill!

  32. This is easily one of the best review/game recommendation videos I've found. So many hidden gems here!

  33. Thanks! Many that I hadn't heard before. It's shockingly difficult to find which games in the nintendo store support more than 4 (and whether it's local or online play). I did notice you missed Octafight though. I haven't picked it up yet but it does support 8 local players. Cheers!
