Nintendo Switch Sports Go Live pre-orders, physical copies include leg strap accessory

Wii Sports fans rejoice: the series is back on Nintendo Switch with an all-new, very appropriate Last name.

Yes, Nintendo Switch Sports brings back the iconic party sports game from the Wii with six sports appearing at launch: Volleyball, Football, Bowling, Tennis, Badminton and Chambara. Golf is also heading to the game in a free update arriving post-launch, and it supports all the Joy-Con jittery goodness you’d expect from a new game in Nintendo’s Sports series.

Pre-orders have already started going live ahead of the game April 29, 2022 release date, and the physical edition of this title is particularly notable thanks to an included Leg Strap accessory that can be used to simulate kicking in the game’s Football modes. Yup.

As detailed above, the physical edition comes with a Leg Strap accessory as standard, resulting in a slightly larger than usual box that will look great on your shelf at home. The accessory is not essential, but it is good that Nintendo has decided to include one with physical copies.

If you choose to purchase the game digitally, you can also purchase the leg strap separately, although this only appears to be available through the My Nintendo Store.
