Alternate name: Character swap

The first video game about Character switch was released on June 26, 1992.

Nintendo, Eidos Interactive and Frozenbyte has published most of these games

This is for the character being switched in-place, not the controls switched to another character elsewhere.

Unlike switching controls to another character, this is quite unrealistic as the character you play as is swapped in-place to another, as if they were hiding in the other character's pocket.
