Nintendo works in mysterious ways, and one announcement that feels very out of left-field, but also oh-so Nintendo, is Nintendo Switch Sports, a sequel to the incredible cultural phenomenon Wii Sports that everyone and their Nan played back in 2008. To say we’re excited is like asking if boxing was the worst game in Wii Sports, the answer is… Obviously, yes.

While Nintendo only announced it recently, you don’t have long to wait, as Nintendo Switch Sports will swing its way onto our systems on April 29, alongside a special leg strap to aid in the new soccer mode. So, let us help you get out onto the courts as quickly as possible with our Nintendo Switch Sports pre-order guide.

If you want to get a taste of the action sooner, you can also sign up to take part in the Nintendo Switch Sports beta, to help stress test servers ahead of launch. Either way, it’s time to hide your lamps and your vase, as we get ready to swing controllers again like we’re swatting flies on a hot day.

Enough racket from us, stay on the ball with our Nintendo Switch Sports pre-order guide.
