Last week we saw that Sports Story’s official Nintendo page had shifted its release date from “Summer 2020” to “TBD,” and today Sidebar Games has made their own official statement on the matter. Bad news confirmed: Sports Story is now delayed per a new ‘trailer’ that’s really just the game’s characters making the announcement, along with some teases of what to expect:

 

 
Per another series of tweets, Sidebar cites their growing ambition and wish to grow the game beyond their initial vision as the reasons for the delay. While it’s sad to see an anticipated game slip further away, patience nearly always pays off in these situations, and they ask fans to “please understand” and look forward to new updates.

 

 
Whenever it arrives, Sports Story will come exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
