Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Dec 262022

Last month, Golf Story successor Sports Story finally got a release window after years of silence.

And on Friday, it came out!

It wasn’t quite as much of a shadow drop as it appeared to be at first, since Nintendo had been highlighting indie games all week long. Friday’s video included the official release announcements of Sports Story.

Only a digital version is available so far, but since Limited Run Games did a physical run of Golf Story, I wouldn’t be surprised if they did the same here. There hasn’t been any news yet that I’m aware of, though.

I loved Golf Story, so I was all set to buy Sports Story and start playing it right away.

However, I’ve actually decided to wait. I’ve seen a lot of people reporting bugs, including softlocks and crashes, enough to make me reconsider starting. Fortunately, Sidebar Games already responded to the concerns by saying a patch is in progress, so hopefully that will clear up the issues once it’s out.

At least I have plenty of games in my backlog to play in the meantime. I had thought Sports Story might be one of the last games I’d finish in 2022, but here’s hoping it’ll instead be a game I love in 2023.

Have you started Sports Story? Are you waiting for a patch?

  1. Definitely interested in it, but more than bugs or other issues… my backlog is too big to be buying this right now, when I have so many other games I’ve bought to play xD

  2. Wow, Sports Story is really getting wrecked in the reviews.
