Nintendo Switch Sports is another of those first-party titles that seem to have some limitations.
As denoted by ‘Akfamilyhome‘ on Twitter, you cannot play the game’s local multiplayer with two or more players when playing on a Switch/Switch OLED in tabletop mode or using a Switch Lite.
If you attempt to access this mode with two or more players, you will see the following message informing you to dock the Switch to play the game in TV mode.
“If two or more people are playing, they must be playing in TV mode. Please insert the Nintendo Switch console into the Nintendo Switch dock.”
Even if you try to start a local multiplayer match on the big screen and then switch to tabletop mode, you get the following message:
“You cannot switch to tabletop mode now. Please insert the Nintendo Switch system into the Nintendo Switch Dock.”
It follows from February’s confirmation that Switch Lite users will be able to play Nintendo Switch Sports with the Joy-Con, although Nintendo would seem to prefer users to stay on the big screen for this particular game.
While this might not be the most surprising news, how does it feel to not be able to play Switch Sports’ local multiplayer with two or more players in tabletop mode or on a Switch Lite? Would you have played like this if there was a chance?
