Nintendo Switch Sports Release Date

During today's Nintendo Direct, a game was revealed that was expected five years ago but certainly not today. Nintendo Switch Sports is on the way and it's exactly what you think it is, a new iteration of Wii Sports. It's a pack of sports games that relies heavily on motion controls, now using the Joy-Con instead of 2006's Wiimote. The included sports are Soccer, Volleyball, Bowling, Tennis, Badminton, Chambara, and Golf (coming later).

Nintendo Switch Sports Release Date

If you were one of the 83 million owners of Wii Sports, you know just what to expect. Miis (or some weird iteration of them) competing in casual sports games using motion controls. All the sports can be played locally or online, including random matchmaking. Nintendo Switch Sports will come to Switch on April 29, 2022 with an MSRP of $39.99, or $49.99 for the physical version that includes a leg strap for soccer.
