How to play 2 players on nintendo switch, How to setup controllers on nintendo switch,

what’s going on guys your boy a21aaron coming at you with a new video today i’m going to be showing you how to play a two-player game on your nintendo switch and it is actually a lot harder than it sounds you need to set up the controllers to be able to actually play a two-player game right first comes first guys you need to put the little black connectors on your controllers so when doing so do make sure that the negatives with the negative and the positive with the positive trust me it is extremely hard to take off if you do not so after you have that connected go down to your controller settings it looks like a little controller after doing so go to change grip order and then now you on the menu that’s going to actually enable you to change the settings you need to change so hold the controller horizontally and hold down lnr editing time and then in the number one section it’s going to pop up a controller horizontal now that one is enabled now you need to set up the second controller by doing exactly the same thing it get the rent in RP process so now we have two controllers that are able to play a two-player game now this is just my short and sweet tutorial showing you how to enable the two-player mode on your attendance which system and this is without buying any extra parts just what the things that came with the system itself so one more thing I wanted to point out before the end of the video is when you go into the main menu of a game that is compatible for two players it will not work unless you do what I showed you in the beginning of the video for some reason it doesn’t automatically set up the two controllers and you have to actually go into the settings and change that on your own so that concludes my tutorial on how to play the two-player mode on your nintendo switch or how to just set up the controllers to play a two-player game right guys so that is pretty much it i really hope you like this video if so show some support subscribe to my channel like the video and check out my next one piece

Gary Tomlinson · January 20, 2018 at 6:19 pm

I didn't even know the black connectors were in the box and we've had this nearly a month. To be fair we gave it to the kids at Xmas and then haven't had much trouble until they couldn't 2 player Lego Ninjago. Half an hour of head scratching and found your video, had it sorted in seconds. Thanks a lot.

Taa II · January 27, 2018 at 7:25 pm

Thanks for the help, but these steps don't seem to be working for Lego City. I was hoping to play this with sister or my cousin seen as how much they enjoyed the Wii U version. Any tips you can add for that?

We bought a switch and we bought the tennis game and I can't figure out how to play 2 player on Mario I watch 2 tutorial and I understand about setting up the joycons but how do you get the game to actually play 2 player? Any help would be highly appreciated

AJ Hill · April 19, 2019 at 10:39 pm

Speedy Yoshi · May 16, 2019 at 7:04 pm

Actually, it was easy for me presumably. I mean, every time i put the strap in the wrong joy con, I just pull it to get it out. 🙂
By the way, you should hate like game speedrunner. He does corruptions, Tool Assisted Speedruns, glitches & more mostly on Mario party!

Can someone tell me why Nintendo didn't allow the option for 2 player mode when someone is playing with the Joycons attached?? I wanna be able to play mk8 with the joycons attached and give my sister another pair of Joycons while I hold the switch. It's so stupid that this isn't an option.
