Nintendo Switch Sports getting a basketball free update this summer

Announced during the Nintendo Direct, it sounds like Nintendo Switch Sports is getting a surprise free update very soon.

Basketball is being added to the game as a free update, this Summer, and will add both local and online play.

Players will be able to go head to head, NBA Jam style with 2v2 matches that use motion controls, but you can also dive into a solo Three-Point Challenge and a Five Streak Battle with up to 4 players.

You can dribble, pass, and shoot using the JoyCons and a tap of the X button and the Three Point Challenge relies on your stability and form.

The update looks great and will drop some time this Summer for Nintendo Switch Sports.
