Today’s excellent Indie World presentation was capped off with a sequel to Golf — er, rather, the sequel to the acclaimed Golf Story, the long in-development Sports Story. This RPG followup features not just golf by tennis and soccer/football to start, and even more disciplines to unlock as you rank up, including BMX, volleyball, mini-golf, cricket, and more.



But sports aren’t the only thing this title has in store. Explore dungeons, engage in espionage, befriend locals, frequent the mall, and venture out into wilderness. What does this all have to do with sports? We’ll have to see. We already know that golf and tennis (and presumably now soccer too) have full career modes, so we can hope that more and more sports have some manner of progression or development as you go through the game.

Here’s the full description from Nintendo:


Sports story is a sports RPG like no other. Featuring a mix of sports and sporting activities wrapped up in one big story. With a multitude of characters to meet, you will make plenty of friends and enemies along the way. Sports Story isn’t just about sports, it’s an all-out sporting adventure.


– Play and master 8 unique golf courses. Rise through the ranks of the tennis world tour. Start your own soccer team. Your sporting destiny is in your own hands.

– Travel by train, helicopter and houseboat as you explore dungeons, abandoned ruins and the mysterious Wildlands.

– Raise your Sporting Rank to unlock new and varied activities like BMX, mini-golf, cricket, volleyball, fishing and more.


Sports Story swings for the fences next month, in December 2022.
