TOP 10 Nintendo Switch Sports Games

10. Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions

Now for something completely different. Based on the classic manga series, Captain Tsubasa:  Rise of New Champions looks to blend football with roleplaying and quintessential anime madness. It combines a solid sporting experience with enough charm and heart to really set itself apart from it’s more simulation-based counterparts. Whether you’re a fan of the source material, or just discovering it for the first time, you’re sure to have a blast lacing up your vibrant, anime boots.

9. Monster Energy Supercross 3

Motocross might be a niche sport in the grand scheme of things, but you shouldn’t overlook Monster Energy Supercross 3. It builds upon its predecessor, combining realistic racing with thrilling online multiplayer for endless replayability. Throw in an intuitive track building feature, and the long-awaited inclusion of female racers, and you’ve got the best two-wheeled racer on the Switch.

8. PGA Tour 2K21

A hardcore experience for hardcore players, if you’re a fan of golf you simply have to play PGA Tour 2K21. The precision it offers means it’s incredibly satisfying when you hit that perfect shot, and a thriving online community gives you every chance to earn bragging rights over your fellow putters. The graphics are also photorealistic, with some of the world’s most popular courses recreated in exquisite detail. And it taught us the difference between an ‘Albatross’ and a ‘Bogey’. Who knew?

7. AO Tennis 2

The premier tennis sim on the Switch, we’ve de-deuced AO Tennis 2 is worth playing. With a lengthy career mode, plenty of customisation options and fast-paced gameplay, it’s got enough to welcome new players and challenge veterans. It also has the license of the Australian Open, which is nice credibility to the whole experience.

6. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

Mario & Sonic team up once again run, jump, swim and ride their way to the top of the podium. Featuring a veritable smorgasbord of minigames, the 6th entry in the series now includes a Tokyo 64 mode (1964 being the last time Tokyo hosted the Olympics), in which characters and maps are transported back to their 8/16 bit roots. It’s a nice, retro-themed addition that helps make this a must buy ahead of the Summer games next year!

5. WWE 2K Battlegrounds

What’s better than sport? Sports entertainment! After the hot mess that was WWE 2K20, the developers have decided to offer a palette cleanser in the form of 2K Battlegrounds. A much more over the top affair, with arcade-style grappling, cartoony graphics and outlandish weapons, it’s a tonne of fun seeing these larger than life characters looking a little more larger than life. Plus you can throw your opponent into the mouth of a waiting crocodile - what more could you want?

4. NBA 2K21

It still boggles the mind that they can squeeze a full sports game into a tiny, portable console, but by Jove, Nintendo finds a way! NBA 2K21 is the latest entry in the basketball sim series, offering fast-paced, accessible gameplay, as well as full career and online modes to keep you slam dunking all year. For this entry, the graphics have been tweaked so that facial animations are a lot more natural, and the ball moves around much more believably. This all makes for arguably the best-looking sports game on the Switch.

3. Mario Tennis Aces

Mario Tennis Aces is an absolute blast. The gameplay is as fast-paced and as fluid as a Mario Kart title, with enough power-ups and special moves to do what Wimbledon never could… make tennis exciting! Mario themed sports titles are often overlooked gems, and Mario Tennis Aces is no exception. 

2. FIFA 21

Unlike other consoles, the Switch’s Fifa 21 is actually just a reskin of Fifa 20, with updated rosters and kits. That’s not to say this version is any less fun, with all the fan favourite modes, including Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs and more! Take football action on the go with the most realistic sim to ever be released on a handheld console.

1. Ring Fit Adventure

The spiritual successor to Wii Fit, Ring Fit Adventure takes the home exercise formula and throws in an RPG story. Only Nintendo… But seriously, what might seem like a gimmick really helps to keep you motivated. Performing simple exercises to take down nasty beasties is brilliantly addictive, and with intensity ranging from beginner to ‘making Joe Wicks wheeze’, you’ll be getting swole in no time!
