Wii Sports back as Nintendo Switch Sports: Arm waving multiplayer magic for April release

Nintendo Switch Sports has been announced during the latest Nintendo Direct conference. The Wii Sports sequel has been given an April 29 release date, exclusively on Switch. The game features classic motion-based sports such as Bowling and Tennis, as well as new sports such as Soccer, Badminton and Volleyball. The physical version will even come with a leg strap, which can be used for a special shootout mode in soccer. Furthermore, Nintendo plans to add Golf as a free update this summer. If you want to play ahead of launch, Nintendo is holding a beta test for Switch Online members from February 18.

The Nintendo Direct show kicked off with a look at Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, which appears to be a new Dynasty Warriors clone.

Nintendo has already partnered Koei Tecmo for Hyrule Warriors and its sequel Age of Calamity.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has a June 24 release date, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp was also previewed during the event, complete with fresh details on some of the new features.

The game will be fully voice acted, and will also contain the ability to fast-forward the action.

Elsewhere, Nintendo announced plans to release No Man’s Sky on Nintendo Switch.

We’re not sure how it’s possible, but the enormous space exploration game has a summer release date for the console.

Nintendo also unveiled a brand new game in the Mario Strikers series, titled Battle League Football.

“On this pitch, anything goes! Take the ball and go for goal when Mario Strikers: Battle League Football, comes to Nintendo Switch on 10/06.”

The Direct conference ended with a look at new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, followed by Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
