    • This setting can be found on the sport-selection screen. Go to Options → User Settings → Other.

Play with Friends

    • Invitees – Press the + Button in Join Room, then enter the Room ID.
  • A new difficulty option called Auto Select is available for Bowling when in Play with Friends. This option measures the average skill of participating players to set the overall difficulty.

    • If an opponent’s connection becomes unstable, the icon will appear on your own screen as well.
    • If you see this icon often, please see our troubleshooting for online latency issues.

Game Overview

Nintendo Switch Sports is a sports simulation game from Nintendo. This is the third main installment in the Wii Sports game series.

It includes the sports from the previous games such as tennis, bowling, and kendo. Plus, three new sports are added: soccer, volleyball, and badminton.

Here’s the official description below from Nintendo below. 

A sports collection to get the whole family moving!

Get moving with Soccer, Volleyball, Bowling, Tennis, Badminton, and Chambara (swordplay) using Joy-Con controllers!

Controls are intuitive, so you can hit the court (or lanes, or field, or arena) and get started. With controlled motions, you can curve your bowling ball, add spin to a tennis shot, or even use a Joy-Con with the included Leg Strap accessory to kick the ball in a Soccer Shoot-Out. Family and friends can join in on the fun on the same system* or online**. Plus a seventh sport is planned to be added via a free update this fall; get ready to Golf!
