Hope you didn’t have any plans of playing Nintendo Switch Sports online this weekend, as Nintendo has been forced to yank the game’s online component for the time being.

Nintendo took to Twitter to note that a major bug has been discovered in Nintendo Switch Sports’ latest update, Version 1.2.1. The bug causes Nintendo Switch Sports to crash during the pre-match loading screen, and it impacts both online and offline modes.

Nintendo has been forced to suspend the rollout of Version 1.2.1 due to this bug, and they’re currently looking for a solution. Until then, Nintendo Switch Sports’ online play has been suspended, along with save data backup. No timeframe was given for things to return to normal.
