Compete for top dog status on the game’s global online leaderboards and challenge anyone, anywhere – Windjammers is the ultimate on-the-go competitive experience taking full advantage of the Nintendo Joy-Cons and the simple but rewarding two-button design.
The Switch’s play-anywhere capabilities are also a perfect opportunity to get extra practice ahead of jumping in to Season 2 – a bastion of top-tier competitive Windjammers esports action featuring disc slinging athletes from around the world await.
