Spiritual successor of the best-selling Wii Sports, starting today, April 29th, Nintendo Switch Sports is available: let’s find out together what this new exclusive Nintendo Switch will contain
Anyone who grew up in the early 2000s can’t help but remember Wii Sports. A title, released at the same time as the launch of the sensational success that was Wii, which revolutionized the video game industry and which has managed to conquer millions of people around the world. The arrival in 2009 of the second chapter Wii Sports Resort, the third best-selling video game ever, officially consecrated the Wii Sports series which managed to sell a total of 110 million copies sold. Almost 16 years later, finally, we have in our hands its spiritual successor: Nintendo Switch Sports, available from today, April 29, exclusively for Nintendo Switch (placing itself next to other pearls such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Kirby and the Lost Land or Triangle Strategy).
Nintendo Switch Sports brings the fun and challenge of real sports to Nintendo’s latest home console, recalling the old glories of Wii Sports while adding exciting new features. You can use the Joy-Con controllers to reproduce real-world movements in the game, but not just those of the arms: also that of the legs. In fact, it is possible to connect the leg band, included with the retail version, to a controller to kick the ball in the Penalty mode of the Soccera completely new discipline for the series in which players will have to compete to send a giant ball into the goal (Fall Guys?).
The new sports also include the Volleyball, where you can serve raise and receive by raising your arms with a Joy-Con controller. Another big news is the Badmintonwhere you need to hold the Joy-Con like a racket and accurately target your shots thanks to the precision of the motion controllers.
Nintendo Switch Sports is out now and yes… there’s Bowling too!
There’s no shortage of great classics we’ve all come to love on Wii, but enhanced and improved. From Tennis, in which it is also possible to play doubles and hit shots such as topspin and slice, taking advantage of the best timing from time to time to give the right angle. Wii Sports Delight is back as well Bowlingwith games for up to 16 players and the addition of an exclusive obstacle course mode, and the Chanbara, in which you have to push the opponent off the platform with a sword, choosing from three possible weapons. But, actually, he is missing: the Golf… Which will be added in a free update during Autumn 2022.
We will be able to play all disciplines with friends and relatives both locally and online, with a subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online service, while those looking for an even more fierce challenge can count on the Lega Pro which allows you to face players from all over the world, climb the rankings and reach higher and higher ranks.
