Switch Sports Story

Sadly, the hotly anticipated Sports Story, planned to launch exclusively on Switch this summer, has been delayed.

The game was first revealed during the December Nintendo Indie World showcase, promising a brand new and more ambitious take on the much-loved Golf Story. It was originally destined for Switch in mid-2020, but the team has been forced to push the game back.

Here's the full statement from Sidebar Games. At present, no new release window has been put in place.

"We must sadly announce a delay. We want to take some more time to work on Sports Story and ensure that everything makes it into the game.

The game has become rather ambitious and we are excited about how it could turn out. But the price is currently being paid as we try to make our plans into reality. We are eager to reveal the results of these past 2 years so please look forward to future updates."

The team has also shared this short clip to social media.

Naturally, it's probably pretty safe to assume that we won't be receiving an update on this one's release date in tomorrow's Nintendo Indie World showcase.

Are you sad to see the game delayed? Have you been looking forward to playing it? Hopefully this extra time will allow the game to be the absolute best it can be.
