Sports Story

Sidebar Games have announced that Sports Story has been delayed to an unspecified date. The developers need more time to finish the game, which turned out more ambitious than they expected it seems!

Here’s a video message:

We must sadly announce a delay. We want to take some more time to work on Sports Story and ensure that everything makes it into the game. The game has become rather ambitious and we are excited about how it could turn out. But the price is currently being paid as we try to make our plans into reality. We are eager to reveal the results of these past 2 years so please look forward to future updates.

Sports Story (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
