Nintendo Switch,Nintendo Switch Sports,Nintendo Switch Sports Review

Owners of the game can now download the new sport for free.

During last month's Nintendo Direct, a number of surprises were revealed for Nintendo Switch. While most of the spotlight was given to announcements like Mario & Luigi: Brothership and The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, Nintendo also announced free content for Nintendo Switch Sports. The game already offers a mix of seven different sports, and starting today, players will be able to check out Basketball, as well.

News of the new addition to Nintendo Switch Sports was surprising to say the least! The game was released more than two years ago, and hadn't gotten any kind of new content since Golf was added in late 2022. It's hard to say why Basketball is coming so long after the fact, or if it means we might see some other sports added to the package down the line.

Nintendo Switch Sports is meant to be a continuation of the Wii Sports series that started back in 2006. At launch, the game featured a mix of new and returning sports from past games: Tennis, Bowling, Chambara, Soccer, Volleyball, and Badminton. As previously mentioned, that number increased when Golf was added later, and then again today with the arrival of Basketball.

Are you planning to check out Basketball in Nintendo Switch Sports? Do you want to see even more sports added to the game? Share your thoughts with me directly on Twitter at @Marcdachamp, on Bluesky at @Marcdachamp, or on Instagram at @Dachampgaming!
