Nintendo has a bit of a history of employing some famous faces to help advertise its games, and with something like Nintendo Switch Sports, it’s the perfect opportunity to partner up with some huge sporting names. And that’s precisely what Nintendo has done in Australia.
Lleyton Hewitt, Australian tennis player and former world number 1 who won the US Open in 2001 and Wimbledon the following year — has partnered with the Big N to show everyone just how to hit a ball on the court.
Along with his son Cruz, who himself is a tennis champion after winning the junior tennis clay-court title in Canberra in 2021, Lleyton shows off the upcoming sports game’s motion controls and two-player mode. And Cruz definitely shows him how it’s done. The pair also hit the bowling alley together, with Lleyton getting the last laugh.
Other celebrities that Nintendo has employed over the years are Serena Williams for Mario Tennis Aces and Just Dance 2021, Christina Aguilera for the Switch itself, and of course Robin and Zelda Williams back in the day.
Nintendo Switch Sports is out in just a week, and we’ve had some hands-on time with the game. Of the time we’ve spent with it so far, we think it Has Great Highs, But Disappointing Lows, but we’re hoping the full release will alleviate those concerns!
Will you be picking up Switch Sports on 29th April? Let us know.
