Hyper Sports R Heading To The Nintendo Switch

Recommended Videos


Konami has announced Hyper Sports R for the Nintendo Switch. This is a successor to Hyper Sports, an arcade game Konami released back in 1984.


There will be multiple modes in Hyper Sports R, though only two have been revealed so far. Campaign lets people pick one of over 20 characters, put them on a team and develop their skills. You then follow their stories and help them win at a series of events. Another mode is Quick Play, where up to four people can quickly hop into single events. Over 20 characters will be available. So far, only three events have been revealed: beach volleyball, swimming and track and field. It will support classic controls and motion controls, though the initial information specifically mentions motion controls being available in the Quick Play mode.


Hyper Sports R is in development for the Nintendo Switch.
