There has been a confirmation that Golf will be the next sport added, apparently in a free DLC coming in the Fall. Golf was one of the most popular sports in Wii Sports so it is unsurprising that it will be the next to arrive.

A recent datamining leak has shown that two more sports may be due for release as well: Dodgeball and Basketball. According to WipeoutJack7 on Twitter, who posted a screengrab of the file, both Basketball and Dodgeball will be added soon. It may be that these two will come with the Golf DLC, or they may be added separately.

As Jack says, it may be scrapped content but players remain hopeful. Dodgeball will be a lot of fun to play with friends and family, and there is no doubt Basketball will be really popular as an online multiplayer too!
