Nintendo Switch Sports testers banned from talking about it on social media

In a few days an “Online Play Test” will take place for the future Nintendo Switch Sports. Sessions only reserved for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, who will also have to observe the most total confidentiality on their experience by expressing themselves on their social accounts.

Announced during the last Nintendo Direct to date, Nintendo Switch Sports will be the third part of a range initiated on Wii with the aptly named Wii Sports. Knowing that, in a way, the original game is one of the best-selling games of all time, and that the Switch is walking on water while splitting it in half, at least a grand success is expected.

But it would not be a question of delivering an unconvincing title on a particularly expected aspect, that of online gaming. Apparently conscious of not being a cador in the matter, Nintendo had announced, at the same time as the existence of the game, an “Online Play Test” in order to gauge the quality of the service for its Nintendo Switch Sports.

“Online Play Test” on Nintendo Switch Sports: limited places

Registration for this “Online Play Test” has just opened, and Nintendo informs us that ” the seats are limited “. It will be about “five sessions of 45 minutes each” on the days of Saturday February 19 and Sunday February 20, 2022. For Saturday, the sessions will take place from 4:00 a.m. to 4:45 a.m., from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. and from 8:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. For Sunday, it will be necessary to be available from 4:00 a.m. to 4:45 a.m. or from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.

The three practicable sports will be bowling, tennis and chambara. The opponents will be chosen at random and it will not be possible to face a friend if he is also taking part in this “Online Play Test”. In double asterisk, Nintendo provides the following clarification:

“By registering for the Online Play Test, you agree not to share any information about it publicly, such as by posting images or videos of the software on social media. »

Given that “Registration may end at any time without notice”one can imagine scenarios where too hanged tongues will be sanctioned by an almost immediate exclusion.
