Free update: Basketball comes to Nintendo Switch Sports!


Grab your headband—it’s time to dribble, shoot, and score! The Nintendo Switch Sports™ game just received a brand-new update: Basketball!

There are a few ways to play once your game is updated:

  • Two-on-Two (single player, local* and online** multiplayer): Who’s up for a quick pick-up game? Show off your dunking skills while alternating between defense and offense.

  • Three-Point Challenge (single player): Try to sink long-distance shots as you channel your inner all-star.

  • Three-Point Contest (local multiplayer*): Take on your friends to see who can hit the most treys***.

  • Five-Streak Battle (local multiplayer*): The first player to make five consecutive baskets in 60 seconds wins!

Your game may have updated already, but you can also check yourself. Just highlight the game icon from the HOME Menu on your system, press the + Button, and then select Software Update (internet connection required).

Happy gaming, all!
