NS Sports - Is Free Roam Possible

Free-roaming is currently unavailable, but several in-game tourist tips imply that the feature could be added to Nintendo Switch Sports via future updates! Read on to learn more information on free-roaming around Spocco Square, including all the possible locations and activities that we can visit and do in the future.

Is Free Roam Possible?

Currently Unavailable

Although the loading screen tip suggest the possibilty to wander around each sports facility, it is not currently not available in the game. Free-roaming, if it's ever implimented, could grant us access to the different shops and amenities around Spocco Square — maybe even the areas surrounding the large sports complex!

Could be Added in Future Updates

There is a high possibility that this free roam feature will become available in the future as one of the updates in the game. Although there is no exact date yet, we assume that it will be soon enough, based on the Twitter post and the in-game loading screens.

  • The cafe building here was made from a freight container! Highly recommended for the fan of smell, enclosed spaces.

Bowling Tourist Tips
  • The bowling alley sports a large skylight so you can soak up the sunlight while you play!
  • Mount & Co., next to the bowling alley, is an outfitter that specializes in camping gear and boats.
  • The sofas in the bowling alley are a comfortable place to relax and watch the action. Visitors can even have food and drinks brought to them there.


Chambara Tourist Tips
  • When the central Chambara platform has been removed for maintenance, there are sometimes artistic-swimming events in the pool below.
  • Hotel Spocco has a total of 25 luxurious rooms. Their soft beds are perfect for collapsing into after a full day of playing sports!
  • The red warehouse where the Chambara platform is located was built 100 years ago when this area was a port.


Soccer Tourist Tips

  • This area has a large field and a small field. You might be able to see one from the edge of the other.

  • There are drones operating 24 hours a day to collect the tennis balls that end up in the pool surrounding the tennis court.
  • After competitors have worked up a sweat playing Tennis, they often head to the Lotus Juice Bar off the courts! They've got a great selection of smoothies and healthy soups.

  • At the Sports Technology Intitute near the tennis courts, they're developing advances like perfectly transparent walls that keep soccer balls from flying off the field.

  • The background music playing in each area is chosen to match the feel of the sport that is played.
  • After playing a sport, you'll receive points toward limited-availability items! Collect them to customize your character.
