Nintendo Switch Sports - Basketball

Nintendo Switch Sports has received its latest free update, adding Basketball, the first new sport since Golf in November 2022. Check out the latest overview trailer for the game below, which outlines the features and modes supported in Basketball.

All the tenets of Basketball are here, from dribbling and passing to shooting and blocking. Players can also dunk the ball and steal from the opposition. Three-Point Challenge is available solo and with up to four players, as they compete to score as many three-point shots as possible within the time limit. This is fundamentally more challenging with other players since they can disrupt your shots.

Other modes include Five-Streak Battle, and players can engage in two-on-two matches locally or online with friends or randoms since matchmaking is enabled. Nintendo has yet to confirm if this is the final update for Nintendo Switch Sports, but stay tuned for other potential features in the future.
