It seems that every Switch release has been leaked somehow today, and with this in mind it has happened again (well, such a …) – this time with Nintendo Switch Sports.

Although it will only be released later this week, a lucky fan known as “i_can_hear_the_world” on Reddit has taken to the Nintendo Switch subreddit to share their excitement about receiving the game early in the mail.

At the time of writing, the entire thread, which is currently at the top of subreddit, has already generated more than 270 comments and 4.6K upvotes. In it you can see pictures of the game box and Switch playing cards.

In addition to asking questions about the game on Reddit, the same person has also posted footage on their YouTube channel SupaDaBloopa – and shares a video that goes through the six sports available at launch. It is about 50 minutes long.

“I used to post pictures of my early copy of Nintendo Switch Sports. Now the video is here. Check it out before Nintendo takes it down.”

“What are the kraken dudes, this is SupaDaBloopa! I was insanely lucky and got Nintendo Switch Sports sent to me four days before its official release date. I feel like Nintendo will send their little ninjas out to kidnap me, but hey. C “est la vie, no? Enjoy this early look at Nintendo Switch Sports. If you have any questions regarding the game itself, please comment below and I will do my best to answer you all.”

Since the game is not officially out yet, of course there is no playable online multiplayer, so all that is shown is local play. The game will apparently also require a patch upon release.

It follows that in April someone got access to a digital copy of Advance Wars: Re-Boot Camp early. When Nintendo found out, it canceled it and refunded the purchase.
