During the recent Nintendo Direct players were shown games such as Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and the Switch version of No Man’s Sky, along with a few more exciting reveals. Also shown was a title that got a lot of people excited, Switch Sports.
Similar to how Wii Sports worked, Switch Sports will use the motion control capabilities of the Joy-Cons to control your character on a range of sports from bowling to tennis. Though no doubt the straps will be advised similar to back on the Wii to prevent the Wii remote flying out hands whilst swinging to hit a tennis ball. And yes it’s a thing, I’ve seen it happen but thankfully not through a TV screen.
On 19th and 20th February, Nintendo will make an online playtest available to prepare for the game’s launch on 29th April. One point however which may be overlooked is the Switch Lite and how will that run the game. The reason for concern for Switch Lite owners is that the game doesn’t support Handheld Mode. It needs to be in a dock which the Lite can’t do or tabletop mode. This is according to the official features on the Nintendo site. However, you can use Joy-Cons on the Lite but it seems Switch Sports won’t work this way.
