What was probably an unexpected surprise in the Nintendo Direct for February 2022 was the announcement for the successor to Wii Sports. Nintendo Switch Sports will be releasing on Switch on April 29th. The game will feature six sports including Bowling, Tennis, Badminton, Soccer, Volleyball, and Chambara (sword fighting). Golf will be made available as DLC at a later date.
A vast amount of screenshots, artwork and box art has become available since the announcement for the press to share with their respective channels. We have rounded up all the newly released images and put them into a gallery so you can view them at your own leisure. Just click on any image below to enlarge it.
