Nintendo Switch Sports isn’t really built for the Switch Lite

Nintendo Switch Sport, released on Nintendo Switch on Friday, brings back the dynamic-controlled fun of Wii Sport to the modern age, allowing players to enjoy bowling, football, badminton and more. That’s great! But if you own a Nintendo Switch Lite, be aware that the experience is very limited as the game relies on motion controls.

Like Motion-Control based games like Ring Fit Adventure and 1-2-Switch, Switch Lite owners will need external joy-cons to play Nintendo Switch Sport. (Nintendo Switch Pro controllers are not compatible with Nintendo Switch Sport, Nintendo says on its support website.)

But the Nintendo Switch Sport in Switch Lite has strict limits on local multiplayer, so if you plan to play close quarters of doubles tennis, for example, locally it is not possible. Nintendo Switch Sport requires a TV mode (broadcast video on TV or monitor) for a local game with two or more players in games such as tennis, badminton, volleyball and sambar. Some sports, such as football and bowling, have “pass-and-play” options where a set of joy-cons will work, but only in certain modes.

Of course, Nintendo Switch supports sports online gaming, so if local multiplayer doesn’t bother, lite owners have that option.

Nintendo specifies these types of controls listed on its website by Nintendo Switch Sport, the Wii Sport Series only supports TV mode and tablet mode, and “Software compatibility and gaming experience may differ on the Nintendo Switch Lite.”

Nintendo Switch Lite owners may now be familiar with handheld-only switch-like controls, but for those who want to get the most out of the Nintendo Switch Sport, the standard switch is the best option.
