Nintendo has shared an overview trailer for Nintendo Switch Sports, which releases on Nintendo Switch later this month.

This successor to Wii SportsWii Sports Resort and Wii Sports Club will once again come packed with a collection of sports, using real-world movements that model your actions in the game:

  • Tennis: rally by gently swinging the Joy-Con controller at the right time
  • Bowling: roll the ball straight ahead, or give it a little curve.
  • Chambara: Knock your opponent off the platform while attacking and defending.
  • Football: Use a gigantic ball to make dynamic plays. Enjoy matches with Joy-Con controllers to shoot and perform Diving Headers. By attaching a Joy-Con controller to the Leg Strap accessory included with the physical version of Nintendo Switch Sports (also available separately), you can play Shoot-out mode with intuitive kicking motions.
  • Badminton: Control your shots left and right while keeping the shuttlecock in the air. Swing left and right while keeping the shuttlecock in the air. Unleash powerful smash shots to gain the upper hand!
  • Volleyball: Use a Joy-Con controller to serve, bump, set, and spike the ball.

Whether in person or online, you will be able to enjoy multiplayer with your family, friends or to challenge players around the world. You will have the chance to customise your avatar with items collected from competing online, and to test your skills in the Pro League where winning matches in the different sports will increase your rank.

There will be two free software updates that will be made available in summer and autumn. The first update will let you play football matches with a Joy-Con controller and the Leg Strap accessory, whereas the second will add Golf as a new sport to the game.

Nintendo Switch Sports will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 29th April 2022.
