Nintendo Switch Sports is homing in faster than a pelted tennis ball, and as you’d expect, promotion for the game has been ramping up as of late. This week kicks off with a new Japanese commercial, which highlights the game as a convenient addition to a player’s exercise regime.

The trailer starts with a woman wrapping up a session with Nintendo’s other popular exercise game on Switch, Ring Fit Adventure. As she sets down her Ring-Con, she reaches for her Joy-Con and initiates an online game of Badminton on Nintendo Switch Sports. The match appears to be quite intense, and as a result, her enthusiasm and seriousness make for quite a charming watch.



This comes right after a notable Switch Sports ad from last week, which saw professional tennis player Lleyton Hewitt promote the game in a trailer from Nintendo of Australia.

Nintendo Switch Sports will launch exclusively on Switch on April 29th, and you can check out our pre-order guide for more information on the game’s release.
