Nintendo to Release Free Switch Sports Software Update on July 26
On July 26 at 6 p.m. PT, Nintendo will release a free software update for Nintendo Switch Sports for the Nintendo Switch system, that kicks things up a notch and adds a number of new features to the game.
With Soccer, Volleyball, Bowling, Tennis, Badminton, and Chambara, you can get moving with Nintendo Switch Sports and put yourself directly in the game using Joy-Con controllers.
Following the update, you’ll be able to turn your real-life kicks into powerful in-game actions in full Soccer matches. In Four-on-Four and One-on-One Soccer matches you’ll be able to use a Joy-Con controller and a Leg Strap accessory.
Get a kick out of this! On 7/26, a free update for #NintendoSwitchSports adds new features, like the ability to use the Leg Strap accessory in Four-on-Four and One-on-One Soccer matches, new Volleyball moves, and more!https://t.co/sEl5QcPipM pic.twitter.com/8PQyhvWxft

Use a kicking motion in real life and the game will transform your movements into in-game actions.
Likewise, you can also move your hands, just like you’re jogging in place, to dash in the game. If you play this way, your in-game kicks will be more powerful.
This new update for the Nintendo Switch Sports game isn’t just for Leg Strap players, though. You may want to try pulling off fancy new moves for Volleyball – the Slide Attack and Rocket Serve. Make your spikes even more unpredictable or catch your opponents by surprise right from the start of the match!
With this update, you can reach even greater heights when you play online in the Pro League with the addition of the new S Rank and ∞ Rank.
