I am just glad that Scott reported also having trouble trying to get the joycons to split and orient themselves properly for Bomberman. I did it in front of 4 friends not having tried it before and it was some lame ass shit to have them watch me for 5 minutes fiddling in menus.
My Switch didn't make it out as much as I'd hoped during PAX but it was still super handy. I played a bunch of Zelda on the train up, while sitting around in-between tasks on Wednesday (Wed setup is super light, as few TT exhibitors show up that day), and back in the hotel room before falling asleep.
Would have liked to try out the system pairing with Bomberman (can link up to 4, bringing it down to 2 players per screen) but there will be a next time.
