How to Play 2 Players on Nintendo Switch: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner looking to play two-player co-op games, you’re in luck. With the Joy-Con controllers, you can easily play games with a friend. In this guide, we’ll go over the steps on how to set up and play co-op games on your Nintendo Switch.

First, on the home screen of your Nintendo Switch, scroll over to settings and select the “Controllers and Sensors” option. Then, go to “Change Grip/Order” on the right-hand side.

Flip your Joy-Con controller around and press the buttons on the back. Your Joy-Con controller will have a plus symbol on it, and the attachment will have a plus or minus sign on it. Match the symbols together, and they will correspond at the top. This will make pressing buttons a little bit easier.

Repeat this step for the other Joy-Con controller. Press both buttons simultaneously, and your controller will show up on the screen.

Now, let’s activate the controllers. If you’re playing a game like Super Smash Brothers, open the game and press both buttons on the Joy-Con controller to activate player one. Then, do the same for player two. In other games, the process may be slightly different, but it should be similar.

Once both controllers are activated, you’re ready to start playing co-op games with your friend.

And that’s it! With these simple steps, you can easily play two-player co-op games on your Nintendo Switch. Enjoy your gaming experience with your friends. If you found this guide helpful, don’t forget to leave a thumbs up and check out our channel for more tech videos.
