Nintendo Switch Sports’ free summer update will be released next week.
Launching on July 26 at 6pm PT (July 27 at 2am BST), it will introduce several new features including leg strap functionality for football matches and new volleyball moves.
Players will be able to use a Joy-Con controller and leg strap accessory to transform real kicking motions into in-game actions in four-on-four and one-on-one matches.

A second free Switch Sports update, which is scheduled to arrive later this year, will add golf to the list of playable sports.
