Gameplay

Nintendo Switch Sports is a continuation of Wii Sports, utilizing motion and button controls with Joy-Cons. The six sports included are Tennis, Bowling, Chambara, Soccer, Badminton, and Volleyball, with Golf being in an update coming in the fall and Soccer having an accessory available in the summer.[1] Online and local play is supported as well.

Nintendo Switch Sports uses a new type of character (that somewhat replace Miis) called Sportsmates, which can be customized. Miis on the Switch's system can be used instead of them.

The location of this game is no longer on Wuhu Island, instead of being on Spocco Square, a new metropolitan city.
