Everything You Need to Play Nintendo Switch Sports

The basic two controllers that come with Nintendo Switch already have motion sensors for motion control. You do not need any additional controllers to play Nintendo Switch Sports. So you need the controllers. What about something more?

There is also a leg strap that is not required, but adds a new mode to the game. It is not needed, but there is a future update that will add more functions while using the leg strap.

All it does is allow you to mount one controller to your leg. The game can see your position in the room and simulate your movements in-game. If you already have a game that is using leg strap like above-mentioned Ring Fit Adventures you do not need a second leg strap. That one will do just fine. You can purchase the digital edition of the game and enjoy it.

However, if you do not have a leg strap, then if you purchase the physical edition of the game you might get it. There are two versions of Nintendo Switch Sports. Digital one is cheaper, but it is only a game download. For the physical copy with leg strap included you will have to pay $49.99 in US and £39.99 in UK.
