Nintendo Switch Sports July update brings Volleyball, Soccer and Pro League improvements


The next Nintendo Switch Sports update will bring new moves to football and volleyball games, and new heights to the Pro League ranks.

Nintendo Switch Sports was a surprising reimagining of a Nintendo classic in April 2022. The game came out of nowhere and introduced a new generation of players to motion-controlled Nintendo Sports games like bowling, volleyball, soccer etc Now it’s getting a new update that will add new moves to volleyball and soccer, as well as the expansion of the Pro League with new ranks for competitive players to hunt.

Nintendo announced the upcoming July update for Nintendo Switch Sports via a press release on July 22, 2022. According to the announcement, the upcoming game updates will focus on Volleyball, Football, and Pro League features. For football, players will be able to enjoy full football matches, using real kicks for you using the in-game leg strap (included in physical versions or purchasable from the My Nintendo Store and participating retailers) . There will be four-on-four and one-on-one matches to participate in. Also, new moves are coming to Volleyball. You can further change your defense and offense with the new Slide Attack and Rocket Serve moves and bring even more variety to your volleyball skills.

If you feel like you’ve reached the pinnacle of Nintendo Switch Sports, the July 26 update will give you new heights to reach. The Pro League is getting two new ranks in the form of Rank S and Rank ∞. By taking on some of the toughest competition yet, you’ll be able to aim for those ranks in the new update.

Nintendo Switch Sports was a fun time when we reviewed it in April. The game offers much of the fun we remember from Wii Sports in a neatly updated package with slightly more hits than misses.

With this upcoming July update for Nintendo Switch Sports, there’s even more reason to get back to gaming and playing sports. Stay tuned as Nintendo will roll out the update next week.
