Nintendo Switch Sports is now officially available (at least in some parts of the world), and as is usual with a new game these days, Nintendo has released a day-one update. In the case of Switch Sports, version 1.1.0 will unlock online play.
Here are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo’s Japanese support page:
Ver. 1.1.0 [2022.4.28]
– You can now play the “Play with people from all over the world” mode.
– You can now play Play with Friends [online] Mode.
– Fixed some issues to make the game more enjoyable.
*You need the latest updates to play online elements.
And here’s a Google translated Nintendo tweet about version 1.1.0:
“We are distributing the update data Ver.1.1.0 of the Nintendo Switch software “Nintendo Switch Sports” released today. By downloading this update data, you can use the “Play with people around the world” and “Play with friends” modes.”
As mentioned, this update is necessary if you really want to participate in fun and games. Nintendo dataminer OatmealDome has also provided some additional insight into the game’s backend – noting how some additional sports text is referenced and how it shares the “same netcode style” as Super Mario Party.
