Random: You Can Now Play As A Squirrel In Nintendo Switch Sports

Silly costumes and characters have always been the norm in video games. Think of the various Mario and Nintendo costumes in Bayonetta 2 — Witch Time in a Princess Peach dress? Yes please. Link in Breath of the Wild could also get Rex’s outfit from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. But let’s take things back a step a second and look at things that are a bit more simple.

Nintendo Switch Sports has an online reward system which lets you earn points if you play in random matchmaking. You can then spend your hard-earned points on a rotating selection of customisation goodies for your Sportsmate. You get a little stamp card that you fill out for every item you buy, and once you buy all 12, you unlock a special outfit.

This week’s collection is called the Relaxation Collection, and it’s the fourth set to be brought into the game after the Basic, Cute, and Soccer Collections. It’s got some nice green lotus-print sportswear, a cute little purple bob, etc. But if you fill out your card and get all 12 items, you’re rewarded with a squirrel bodysuit.

Okay, playing sports with glasses on, with long jackets on, we can accept. But a bodysuit? Imagine how sweaty you’d get inside that! Well, it’s different, we’ll give Nintendo that. We’ve grabbed a list from Nintendo of everything you can get from the Relaxation Collection, so peruse away:

The folks over at GameXplain showed off the outfit by wearing it to play soccer, badminton, and bowling. The outfit is purple by default, but it’ll change colours depending on the sport you’re playing — like in soccer, for example, you can see the squirrel body is in a lovely light blue instead.

Take a look at the video below to see the squirrel outfit in motion, and let us know what you think of this addition!
