Nintendo Switch Sports is another one of those first-party titles that appear to have some restrictions in place.
As identified by ‘Akfamilyhome‘ on Twitter, you won’t be able to play the game’s local multiplayer mode with two or more players if you’re playing on a Switch/Switch OLED in tabletop mode, or are using a Switch Lite.
If you do attempt to access this mode with two or more players, you’ll be presented with the following message, which informs you to insert the Switch into a dock to play the game in TV mode.
“When two or more people are playing, you’ll need to play in TV Mode. Please insert the Nintendo Switch console into the Nintendo Switch dock.”
Even if you attempt to start up a local multiplayer match on the big screen and then swap to tabletop mode, you’ll be presented with the follow message:
“You cannot change to tabletop mode now. Please insert the Nintendo Switch system into the Nintendo Switch dock.”
It follows on from the confirmation in February that Switch Lite users would be able to play Nintendo Switch Sports with Joy-Con, even though Nintendo would seemingly prefer users to stick to the big screen for this particular game.
Although this might not be the most surprising news, how do you feel about not being able to play Switch Sports local multiplayer with two or more players in tabletop mode or on a Switch Lite? Would you have played this way if it was a possibility?
