Sports Story, the sequel to 2017’s Switch exclusive Golf Story, has been given a December 2022 release window.
The sports RPG was announced during Nintendo’s December 2019 Indie World Showcase and was initially planned for release in mid-2020, but it was delayed due to developer Sidebar Games’ “ambitious” plans.
The game expands on the golf-focused original with tennis, fishing, dungeons, mini-games and more.

Sports Story’s new release window was confirmed during the latest Nintendo Indie World Showcase on Wednesday.
“In this all-out sporting RPG, you’ll rise through the ranks of the sports world and prove your prowess on the golf course, tennis court and football pitch,” reads an official product description.
“By raising your sporting rank you’ll unlock even more disciplines, including BMX, volleyball, cricket and more. But the game isn’t just about sports – hop on a train or helicopter to explore dungeons, abandoned ruins and the mysterious Wildlands, or kick back at the mall with its daily attractions, specialty sports stores and minigames.”
