How to sign up for the Nintendo Switch Sports online playtest
Registering for this play test is easy! Here we will explain how.
Nintendo Switch Sports is just a few days away from launching its first public test after being announced in the most recent Nintendo Direct. Users who have subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online can try out a preview of this spiritual successor to the Wii Sports saga through the free Online Play Test.
During the debut, the Online Play Test will only cover three of the six sports available (golf is the seventh and will arrive for free this fall). Matchmaking will allow you to play bowling, tennis, and chambara (swordplay). It’s worth noting that in the playtesting, the Switch’s online invitation function will be disabled.
