Gather the friends around
Good news, bad news today, gang. The good news is that the previously-announced Couch Mode update for Golf With Your Friends is now available on Switch. The bad news is that the Pizza Party Cosmetic Pack was set to launch today as well, but it’s been delayed on Switch until December 19th, 2022. Team17 says this happened due to ‘unforeseen circumstances.’
