Sports Story Is Golf Story Except With Lots More Sports

Chris Kohler Dec 11, 2019. 9 comments

Just announced during Nintendo’s Indie World showcase this morning, Sports Story is a sequel to Golf Story, the 2017 golf RPG that was a breakout indie hit on Switch . It’s coming in mid-2020 and will launch exclusively on Switch.

Not only are we talking about more sports, we’re talking about a mashup of every sport. Use a golf club to hit a baseball into a soccer goal? Why not?

Golf Story is one of the favorite games of Nintendo’s new president Shuntaro Furukawa . So it’s not too surprising to see its follow-up stay exclusive to Switch.

Fight, Magic, Item: The Comfort Of Simple RPGs Fight, Magic, Item: The Comfort Of Simple RPGs

The last two games I played on my Switch were the original Dragon Quest and Breath of Fire, two early examples of the Japanese role-playing game. Today, they might seem overly simplistic: grind for levels, brute-force through a boss, repeat. These two games are, if anything, even more simplistic than their peers. And right now, that’s just what I...
