Bowling is either a sport you love or the mention of it brings up embarrassing memories of not being able to lift those heavy balls well enough to send it down the lane. Thankfully, bowling video games have made it way easier for us that don’t workout enough to handle a bowling ball. What? I’m not talking about me. Anyway, if you want to become a pro then PBA Pro Bowling 21 might just be up your alley. Okay, enough puns.
PBA Pro Bowling 21 invites you to slip on your fancy bowling shoes and take control of a number of real-world professional bowlers. The game features an extensive career mode with over 100 tournaments, dozens of venues and environments and over 150 different balls to choose from (all from real-world manufacturers). The game also boasts sim-mechanics, featuring realistic physics for the bowling lane itself, the balls, and pins. The game claims to have the “best bowling physics ever in a video game”, so if that’s a realistic claim, then perhaps this just might be what you need to enhance or build your bowling skills.
Once you’ve perfected your throwing arm, take the game online with online leaderboard functionality and “e-sport style online tournaments”. You can also go head-to-head with your family and friends in local multiplayer mode.
There’s no mention if PBA Pro Bowling 21 will support touch or motion controls on Nintendo Switch, so here’s hoping that’s also included for a more natural gameplay experience.
If you’re excited to take a swing at PBA Pro Bowling 21, then you’ll be happy to know that you won’t have to wait very long at all. The game will strike its way onto the Nintendo Switch in just a matter of days—December 21, 2020, to be exact. As of the time of writing, that’s next week. So, be sure to check out the eShop at that time to give it a download.
