Prepare for a huge dose of fun in a microscopic world — either solo or together with a partner! Step into the roles of Vita-Boy & Mina-Girl, co-piloting the Capsule Ship to wipe out vile pathogens from within the body of a host. Using innovative controls, you’ll zap down foes with your Vitamin Beam, brandish the ship's handy claw module, and twist and turn through colorful, maze-like environments to save the members of the Sable family — including the dog! — from an assortment of hazardous and increasingly wacky predicaments. Every stage also features variety-packed sub-games that will have you tilting, grabbing, and dancing your way to victory! When playing together, coordination is key, as one player holds the Joy-Con controller vertically to move and shoot, and the other holds the Joy-Con horizontally to rotate and aim. Only by forming a connection and harnessing the vitamin power of Vita-Boy & Mina-Girl will you be able to stop the molecular menace! KEY FEATURES: - Battle bacteria with your Capsule Ship across six colorful worlds plus numerous bonus stories! - Play a variety of sub-games featuring precision twisting, rhythmic action, IR-based reflex tests, and other challenges! - Unique and innovative Joy-Con controls with HD Rumble! - Jam to an international music collaboration covering everything from J-pop to hip hop! - Play solo or team up with a friend in the asymmetric two-player mode! - Unlock "New Game Pro" mode to experience the story from a whole new perspective as the anti-hero...Pro-Biotic!

Vitamin Connection is another great addition to Switch catalogue, a very joyful oriented to cooperation that is a wonderful Joy-Con's tech showcase. And it does it with a great audiovisual presentation and style. But bear in mind that it can result a little bit short, with lots of backtracking and some difficulty peaks.

Vitamin Connection is a kaleidoscopic mishmash of influences and genres – part cutesy shooter, part mini-game collection. Not all of its ideas stick, and there are a couple of points of friction caused by its tilt controls, but when it's on song, this is a charming sugar rush of an experience – especially if you're after a new couch-co-op game.

Vitamin Connection is a title that gives away some of its plot elements. This fun multiplayer-focused experience benefits from a good, bright, colourful visual presentation and a very involving two-player gameplay component that takes full advantage of the Nintendo Switch capabilities. It works less well on solo and the game's soundtrack and regular backtracking end up becoming a bit too burdensome but for two players looking for some clean, wholesome (and healthy) fun, Vitamin Connection is definitely worth considering.

Vitamin Connection is pretty much a unique concept, so if you're looking for a game that's hard to compare to others, this one should be near the top of your wishlist. Just keep in mind that, much like actual vitamins, this game is best in small doses. Also, if you're a solo player, be mindful that backtracking and encountering difficulty spikes through maze-like bodies is best when tackled as a pair.
