“The game has become rather ambitious and we are excited about how it could turn out,” says the developer.
In December of last year, Sidebar Games announced Sports Story, a sequel to the charming RPG Golf Story that will be taking things far beyond just golf, as the name implies. The game was originally scheduled to launch in mid-2020, but its release date has now been pushed back.
In an update posted to Twitter, the developer announced that Sports Story is being delayed. Revealing that the game has become far more ambitious than they had originally planned, Sidebar Games say they need more time to work on it and that everything they have planned for it manages to make its way into the final product. No new release date has yet been announced, but the developer says it is “eager to reveal the results of these past 2 years.”
The video also teases some interesting things about what will make it into the game, with everything from pirates and evil corporations to pirates and, of course, sports being mentioned. Take a look below.
When it does launch, Sports Story will be coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
