Video: No, Nintendo Switch Sports’ Online Mode Isn’t Fake


There’s a theory doing the rounds (because of course there is) that the online modes in Nintendo Switch Sports aren’t actually the real deal.

In response to this, our senior video producer Alex Olney is here to set the record straight. As you’ve probably already worked out from the title above, no – the online mode isn’t fake, but there does seem to be something going on.

It appears you might get matched with bots either “easing you in” or possibly making up the numbers. So, Alex has spent some time assessing the fine details to help you identify the real players from the bots.

The bottom line though is Nintendo Switch Sports does not have a “fake” online mode. View the video above for the full rundown and tell us how your own experience with this game has been so far.
