Back in 2019, Sidebar Games revealed Sports Story, an upcoming sequel to the excellent Golf Story that’s planned to launch as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. The announcement was made during a Nintendo Indie World Showcase, not only being one of the highlight games of the event, but also causing a great deal of excitement among fans who had played the original.
It’s right up there with the most anticipated indie games headed to Nintendo’s platform, but its original “mid-2020” launch window came and went without a release. Sidebar Games confirmed that the game was being delayed last August, and we haven’t heard a peep about its development progress since.
Until now, that is. In a rare update posted to Twitter this morning, the studio has said:
“Everything is coming together now. Please look forward to more updates going forward, we have much to share!”
In a later post, the team also shared a new screenshot. “Everybody wants to know the first step to turning pro. Wall Bounders is that first step.”
As you may well remember, Sports Story is set to up the ante with not only golf, but also tennis, fishing, dungeon exploration, and more. If you need a quick catch-up on why the game’s such a big deal, make sure to check out our Golf Story review – whether you’re a fan of golf, RPGs, or just great quality games in general, it’s certainly worth a look.
Here’s hoping those promised updates head our way soon. We’ll make sure to keep an eye out for more news as it arrives, but in the meantime, feel free to let us know if you’re still feeling hyped for the game in the comments below.
