OverviewOverview

Super Bear Sports is a sports rhtyhm game where you move your character in time with the music to swing, volley, and score points in different events.

Play involves using your rhythmic reflexes in the 5 mini-games based on familiar sports: tennis, hockey, golf, and volleyball. Either on your own or with up to four people, you collaborate and compete to score points by hitting bang on the beat.

You can play with the Joy-Con on Switch (or Apple Remote on Apple TV) like the Wii Remote, using it like a bat and swinging it through the air. You can also use a standard controller and buttons if you prefer. As you progress you unlock new difficulty levels and compete for high scores. You can also earn clothing to customize your characters outfit and bat.

The result is a really simple game like Wii Sports, but with depth that comes from rhythm, timing and a love of music. It's a great game to play across the generations.
