Nintendo Switch Sports version 1.2.2 update
We fixed an error that occurs during pre-match loading under certain conditions, causing the software to close.
This update data (Ver. 1.2.2) may not resolve the issue this time for some players so we are preparing the next update data (Ver. 1.2.3) distribution for them.
Update data (Ver.1.2.3)
Scheduled release date: October 19, 2022 (Wednesday)
This webpage or our Twitter account will notify when the update date is confirmed. Save data backup will resume service after this update. For some players, the order of items in the “Accessories (head)” section of “Customize” will be different from its order before the update. This will not have effects on playing the game.
On the extension of Nintendo Switch Online and in-game points
For those who have Nintendo Switch Sports and are currently a member of Nintendo Switch Online, the membership period will be extended by one week. Details will follow in the future.
Between October 17, 2022 and November 2, 2022, points earned when playing “Play Globally” will double on all sports.
Normally, 1.1x to 1.3x points are given in “Random” or in one of the sports.
There are plans for a method to collect rewards missed during this time. Details will follow in the future.
