A bit of indie fun for the pair
Nintendo is back with another video featuring Yoiko, a popular comedy duo in Japan. Once again, the comedians have visited their friends at Nintendo to go hands-on with a game, but this time around they’re enjoying a couple of indie games on the Switch.
Yoiko is a Japanese comic duo from Konohana-ku, Osaka that is employed by the comedy talent agency Shochiku Geino. Yoiko are known otakus, and the duo (kombi) was originally formed under the pretense of Shinya Arino as the boke (stooge) and Masaru Hamaguchi as the tsukkomi (straightman), but as time went on and Hamaguchi’s “natural stupidness” started to shine through, the duo became known as “the duo with no real distinction between the boke and the tsukkomi”.

In today’s video, Yoiko sits down to play not one, but two different indie titles on the Switch. First up, the duo spends some time with Chippy & Noppo, an action puzzle where two guys work together to make a toy with a theme. After that, the pair tries their hand at You Suck at Parking, a racing game where parking your ride is more important than your driving skills.
