The most surprising thing about Switch Sports is that it took so long to come out. After all, Wii Sports was one of the most popular games ever made, and the Switch’s controls lend naturally to a follow-up.
With that in mind, this feels familiar. Bowling and Tennis in particular have been lifted almost directly from the Wii game, but they’re joined by four new activities: volleyball, football, badminton, and chambara (essentially fencing).
The newer games tend to add a little more complexity, though really it’s the simple classics that hit the spot best.
Throw in both local and online multiplayer, and unlockable outfits to customise your avatar, and there’s enough here to make this worthwhile – especially at the game’s cheaper price.
Note that the physical edition comes with the leg strap also found in Ring Fit Adventure – an optional extra for the football mode, but not required at all.
