Battle it out in Chambara and drive your rival off the edge of the platform and down into the water below! Swing your Joy-Con to attack, or block your opponent’s strikes to create an opening to counter. Choose your weaponry from one of three options each with their own unique playstyles, such as the Twin Swords that can be wielded by using two Joy-Con at once!

Use a Joy-Con controller to serve, bump, set, and spike the ball. The key to winning is co-operation, so work together with your partner to create openings and score points! Throwing your arms up at the right time will block incoming shots and give you an opportunity to counter too.
