Clubhouse Games returns on Switch with 51 games, out June

by Daniel VuckovicMarch 27, 2020

Update: The game will be called 51 Worldwide Games here in Australia matching the European version of the game. The DS original, however, was released as Clubhouse Games in Australia.


Nintendo dropped a Nintendo Direct Mini on us late last night and there was a tonne new of content!

During the Direct, Nintendo announced the return of the DS favourite Clubhouse Games with a new game Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics.

Games like Four-in-a-row, Mancala, Slot Cars, Sliding Puzzle and Texas Hold’em are included among the 51 games from around the world. Some of the games include local multiplayer support and online support as well.

The game will arrive on June 5th and is available to preorder now.

    My favourite announcement from the direct! 😀

    I only wish it retained the Clubhouse Games moniker in Europe/Australia rather than just the painfully generic-sounding “51 Worldwide Games”. In fact, I’m tempted to import for this reason alone. 😛

    I’m also p-ssed that the ACB slapped an M rating on it (it’s rated E in the US!). They allow predatory mobile games and other console releases with loot boxes and other gambling elements that entail the use of real-world currency with as little as G ratings (and no warning of the content whatsoever!) while card games merely associated with real-world gambling with no risk of in-game (or real-world) monetary deprivation is slapped with an M rating, presumably due to the mere presence of Blackjack and Texas Hold ‘Em. I could understand if the presence of these activities were tied to in-game incentives (like they were in the Gen I-IV Pokémon games), but where they are inconsequential, I think a PG more than suffices. Judging by the M rating on the video posted by Nintendo Australia, I assume that they have no intention of having the decision reviewed, and I doubt that complaining will make any difference, but I intend to do so, as the ACB’s guidelines on gambling content in video games is often hypocritical.
