From our testing, we can tell you that a different set of characters lie between each difficulty in Nintendo Switch Sports’ offering. For example, Eva is normal at soccer but excels in Volleyball under the powerhouse category. They each shift in capability throughout the game.

The characters also can have their own strategy while playing so you better keep an eye on the more tricky computer AIs in the game. Steve in Volleyball and Yoko at Soccer are both powerhouses in their sports. It may be best to know how to play tennis and soccer properly before stepping foot into a powerhouse difficulty game.
