UPDATE: February 16th, 2022 — Sign ups are now live for the first round of the Nintendo Switch Sports play test. Head to your Nintendo account online, and you can get yourself a download code which you will then simply enter into the Nintendo eShop on your Switch device. The above link is for the UK, so be sure to change your region if you are based anywhere else. With the download code, you will be able to pre-load the Switch Sports play test to your device, and can even check out the Avatar creation screen. However, you will not be able to play any further until the beta opens on February 19th, 2022, at 12am EST/5am GMT. Check out the table at the bottom of the page for all five time slots.

During a Nintendo Direct broadcast on February 9th, 2022, Nintendo announced that classic Wii Sports gameplay was returning to Nintendo consoles in April, with open, online play tests taking place later in February. Here, we take a look at how to sign up for the Nintendo Switch Sports play tests.

The new Nintendo Sports game is going to feature six games to start with, with Golf being added later in 2022. Play with friends and family locally on the same Switch console, or play with others online.
