Nintendo Switch Sports is yet another one of those first-party titles that seems to have some limitations in place.
As identified by ‘Akfamilyhome‘on Twitter you will not be able to play the game’s local multiplayer mode with two or more players if you play on a Switch / Switch OLED in table mode or use a Switch Lite.
If you try to access this mode with two or more players, you will be presented with the following message informing you to insert the switch into a dock to play the game in TV mode.
“When two or more people are playing, play in TV mode. Please insert the Nintendo Switch console into the Nintendo Switch dock.”
Even if you try to start a local multiplayer match on the big screen and then switch to table mode, you will be presented with the following message:
“You can not switch to tabletop mode now. Please insert the Nintendo Switch system into the Nintendo Switch dock.”
It follows after the confirmation in February that Switch Lite users would be able to play Nintendo Switch Sports with Joy-Con, although Nintendo apparently prefers users to stick to the big screen for this particular game.
While this may 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 were an opportunity?
