E3 2018: Konami Announces Hyper Sports R for Nintendo Switch

Konami’s Super Bomberman R was a surprising hit for the Switch, and now they’re back with Hyper Sports R. They haven’t done a ton of sports games over the years, but they did have a bit in Track and Field on the NES and Hyper Sports in arcades. Hyper Sports R aims to offer a similar pick up and play mentality – but with more sports offered up, like volleyball as well as track and field. Instead of button mashing, it appears that the game will focus on JoyCon shaking to move your characters around. The game doesn’t have a release window, but does show some promise and looks to fill a void left by the lack of Wii Sports-style games on the system.
