The much-anticipated Golf update is finally available for Nintendo Switch Sports.
While this new Nintendo Switch Sports update brings some new golf content, it will also include 21 holes from Wii Sports. Nintendo has confirmed that there will be casual competition options and an eight-player online “Survival Golf” mode where all golfers can hit their balls at the same time. The player with the most strokes at the end of a Survival Golf round is out.
This new update is a welcome addition to Nintendo Switch Sports, but many players have wondered why the game didn’t launch with golf included.
Compared to Wii Sports and its sequel Wii Sports Resort, Switch Sports was a little disappointing at launch. Switch Sports launched with only six sports: soccer, volleyball, badminton, bowling, tennis, and chambara.
It appears that Nintendo is taking a similar approach to Switch Sports as it’s taking to Mario Golf: Super Rush, Mario Strikers: Battle League, and other sports titles: slowly dripping out additional content to keep players engaged. Unsurprisingly, some players find it frustrating that Nintendo keeps releasing “unfinished” sports titles.
