Nintendo Switch Sports: How to queue for multiple sports online

Grab your Joy-Cons, friends, and family, because Nintendo Switch Sports is here to bring back all those great memories of playing Wii Sports back on the Wii. This new sports title brings six exciting, motion-controlled events to your Nintendo Switch. You get returning favorites like bowling and tennis, a few new surprises to try out, plus various challenges and minigames inside of a few games to add even more variety outside of just playing by the traditional rules. However, unlike the Wii title, Nintendo Switch Sports leverages more features of the Switch console, including online play.

While playing in the same room as others is usually the more ideal way to have fun with Nintendo Switch Sports, it isn't always an option. For those times, or just for the sake of finding new challenges, online play is there to give you more options to stay competitive even when you're playing by yourself. Most of the time, finding a match doesn't take long, but it is a little inconvenient to only queue up for one sport at a time. But there is a way you can look for multiple sports matches online at once, though it isn't available by default. If you want to speed up your queue times and find matches faster, here's how to queue for multiple sports at once when playing Nintendo Switch Sports online.

How to unlock multisport queues

By default, you can only search for single sport matches when looking for an online game, but you can unlock the option to queue up for three to make your wait basically non-existent. Here's how to unlock this feature.

Step 1: Either alone or cooperatively with a friend, select a sport to play offline against the AI.

Step 2: Complete that match, win or lose, and then select a second, different sport to play against AI.

Step 3: Play a third and final sport of your choosing in offline mode against the AI.

Step 4: Go back to online play and you can now select three sports to search for simultaneously.

It won't take you long to unlock this option in Nintendo Switch Sports and is really more of a formality than anything else. Nintendo just wants to make sure everyone is at least familiar with most of the sports in the game before letting people dive into the world of online competition. Once you load up which three sports you want, you will be placed in a match with whichever one of those the game can find a match for first.

Nintendo Switch’s weirdest launch game is getting a surprise sequel
Key art for Everybody 1-2-Switch!

Nintendo has quietly announced Everybody 1-2-Switch!, a sequel to one of the oddest launch titles for Nintendo Switch.
1-2-Switch! was a Nintendo Switch launch title that served as a tech demo of sorts for the Joy-Con controllers, with players completing minigames based on direction from actors in live-action clips. It's a very quirky and critically divisive Nintendo Switch game, so it's a bit surprising to see a follow-up. According to the eShop listing for Everybody 1-2-Switch!, this game lets players use their Joy-Cons or smartphones to complete a variety of team-based minigames. And that's about all we've seen or know about this $30 game ahead of its June 30 launch alongside some new pastel Joy-Cons.

Everybody 1-2-Switch!'s announcement was quite unorthodox for Nintendo. It simply tweeted about the game's existence and opened up preorders on the eShop. This all happened with no reveal trailer less than a month before the game's launch. It's unknown why Nintendo's taking this approach instead of including the game in a Nintendo Direct or other major showcase, but a 2022 report from Fanbyte may reveal the answer. According to that report, Everybody 1-2-Switch! tested horribly, and Nintendo worried that the game could "damage the company’s reputation as a great software developer." 
Almost a year after that report, it seems that the game has improved enough to release, or maybe Nintendo is just willing to take the hit after the impressive launch and critical reception of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Either way, this is a weird sequel to a weird Nintendo Switch launch game that's being mutedly marketed so it doesn't elicit much hype. We'll just have to wait and play it for ourselves if we want to know whether Everybody 1-2-Switch! is an enjoyable game or not.
Everybody 1-2-Switch! will be released physically and digitally for Nintendo Switch on June 30.

Where to farm Zonite in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Link with a created mining rig in Tears of the Kingdom.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild introduced many survival elements into the Zelda formula, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom only expands on those concepts. Things like cooking and crafting return in new-and-improved forms, but what hasn't changed much is the need to gather tons and tons of resources. From food to materials, weapons, and ores, Link's pockets will quickly become jam-packed with these materials. Zonite is a new form of resource that is vital for anyone who is enjoying the new Ultrahand ability and creating all types of wacky vehicles and contraptions. If you're hitting the limit on your creations due to a lack of Zonite, here are the best places to farm it in Tears of the Kingdom.
What is Zonite?
Zonite is tied to the ancient Zonai and their technology, which you will be using to build various machines in Tears of the Kingdom. Zonite itself is a material you can collect that, when you have enough, can be used with a Forge to make one of two things: Zonite Charges or Crystallized Charges. Zonite Charges are used to immediately refill any Energy Cell's power, while Crystallized Charges expand those Energy Cells' maximum capacity.
Best places to find Zonite

The best places to find Zonite, like any raw material, are down in the Depths. Here are a few hotspots we've found to have a good supply for you to plunder.
Great Abandoned Central Mine
The Great Abandoned Central Mine is an easy spot to recommend for farming Zonite since it is quite easy to access. You can find it at coordinates -0728, -1860, -0503. Simply drop inside with a hammer or explosives and break the deposits to gather up the Zonite.
Lindor Canyon Mine
If you've drained the Central Mine clean, Lindor Canyon Mine is another spot rich in Zonite. You can find it at the coordinates -2004, 1310, -0715.
Enemies in the Depths
If you're not as much into mining, another method for getting Zonite is to collect it from enemies in the Depths. While not every enemy drops this material, plenty do, so fighting off these tougher enemies can be worth your time. Korok Grove, found at 006, 2521, -0623, has two encampments to raid if you're feeling up to the challenge.

How to get the true ending in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

We all know and love both Breath of the Wild and now The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the incredible amount of freedom afforded to us. Not only are you free to explore in any direction you so choose, but you are even free to march straight from the beginning of the game to the final boss if you think you're up to the challenge. Should you win, the final cutscene will play and the credits will roll. But doing that, or anything short of meeting some specific requirements, will cut your ending short. If you want to see the true ending to Tears of the Kingdom, here's how to unlock an additional scene.
