One of the most requested games for the Nintendo Switch was the next iteration of Wii Sports, and that’s what we got with Nintendo Switch Sports. With the game just launching a week ago, Nintendo is already reporting that the highly-anticipated title is off to a great start.
VGC reports that during an investor Q&A session this week, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that Nintendo Switch Sports had the potential to broaden the audience of the Switch to ‘people who don’t normally play games.’
While the game is popular for people of all ages in Japan, it’s said that the game is doing well in the European and North American market for people in their mid-20s who used to play the Sports games on the Wii.
For now, the NSS has a lot of great games to get people up and running, but it is said that a golf version will be available down the line soon. We don’t know what else games Nintendo has in store for an expansion, but hopefully they find more creative ways to bring the thrill of sports to the comfort of everyone’s living rooms.
