Nintendo Switch Sports will include the sports games soccer, volleyball, bowling, tennis, badminton and chambara. In addition, the game be getting game via a free game update this fall. This brings the total number of sports games to seven.

Nintendo Switch Sports will release on Friday, April 29, 2022, for Nintendo Switch.
