Nintendo Switch Sports is launching in less than a month, coming as an unlikely new instalment in the mega-successful yet long-dormant Wii Sports series. As the days count down to its release, Nintendo has released a new overview trailer for the game, providing new details on several key elements of the experience.

A multi-sport facility named Spocco Square will serve as the hub in Nintendo Switch Sports, from where players can dive into any of the six sports that’ll be available in the game at launch- tennis, badminton, soccer, chambara, bowling, and volleyball. Local multiplayer will, of course, be the meat-and-potatoes of the experience, but as per new details revealed by Nintendo, it seems the game will also have a meaty online component.

In addition to online matches against friends, Nintendo Switch Sports will also allow random matchmaking and offer a number of unique modes for all sports. For instance, survival bowling see 16 players going up against each other and all bowling at once, while soccer will allow 4v4 matches.

The game’s online component will also have a larger progression system. Players can work their way towards going pro in each sport by racking up victories, after which you’ll be able to join that sport’s Pro League. Pro League will start and E rank and go up to A rank, encompassing 12 ranks in total. Playing online will earn you points, which in turn will unlock various in-game customization items.

Speaking of which, the overview trailer confirms that Nintendo Switch Sports will also have plenty of cosmetic customization options, allowing you to customize your character’s hair, body style, accessories, outfit, skin colour, eyes, and more. Mii characters will also be usable.

Make sure to check out the trailer below for more details.

Nintendo has also previously confirmed that in addition to the six sports it’s launching with, Nintendo Switch Sports will also add a seventh in golf later this year as free DLC. Whether or not even more new content is planned for the future remains to be seen, but leaks have suggested that at least two more sports could be added with basketball and dodgeball.

Nintendo Switch Sports launches on April 29.
