Nintendo has released two new patches for Nintendo Switch Sportsbringing the Wii Sports successor back to the network after a few days of downtime.

The sports game has been offline since October 14 due to a bug discovered in its update to version 1.2.1. The bug will cause the game to crash while loading matches in both online and offline modes, forcing Nintendo to recall the patch and disable online play while it investigates the issue.

In a post on its support website, Nintendo explained its plans to fix the problem by releasing two updates for the game. The first, version 1.2.2, arrived on October 18 and re-enabled online play. Shortly after, on October 20th, Nintendo released an update to version 1.2.3 that restored the saved data backups.

As compensation for the downtime, Nintendo said it will extend Switch Sports to players Nintendo Switch Online Membership for one week. Players will also earn double the amount of in-game points for playing online until November 3rd.
