Nintendo Switch Sports is the Long-Awaited Sequel to One of the Wii’s Most Popular Games

A sequel to Wii Sports was announced during today’s Nintendo Direct in a surprising twist.

Nintendo Switch Sports will arrive on the Switch on April 29. The company confirmed that the following modes will be available: Tennis, Bowling, Chambara, Soccer, Badminton, and Volleyball. Nintendo also confirmed that it will add Golf into the game via a free update this fall.

Unlike previous installments in the series, including the HD remake, Wii Sports Club, the upcoming title will not include Miis in the game.

Ahead of the game’s late April release, Nintendo announced that it will be hosting an online playtest for Nintendo Switch Sports beginning February 18 and will conclude on February 20. However, only players with an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription will access the playtest.

The announcement of Nintendo Switch Sports has been long-awaited for fans of Wii Sports, which was released as a launch title for the console back in 2006.
