Nintendo Switch Sports will launch around 1.4GB on April 29, but more free content updates are planned to allow players to play Football with Leg Strap, and golf will be added in the future.

As usual, these file sizes may change before the official release of each game. Even if they are not dead on the size of the starting games, they should at least be an indicator of how much space each title will require.
