If you find yourself wanting to listen to Golf Story’s soundtrack, you can now purchase it entirely. The full OST was officially released today.

The Golf Story soundtrack is available here. 17 pieces of music are included starting at $5. Buying the soundtrack provides streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Golf Story’s first update is finally here. Version 1.0.1 has just started distribution. No patch notes yet, but the update should address a number of bugs and fixes. We’ve reached out to SideBar Games in hopes of obtaining more information.

Limited Run Games will finally begin to publish Switch titles in 2018. Now the question is, what will the company begin with?

One very strong possibility is Golf Story. Speaking with The Switch Effect, Limited Run Games co-founder Douglas Bogart pointed to that title as well as FAST RMX and Thimbleweed Park as games he’d like to give the physical treatment to. Even more telling, Bogart later said that “we thought our first title would just be a pipe dream, but instead it’s a hole in one.”

That last line is definitely a nod to golf, and we all know that Switch has one big indie golf game – that being Golf Story, of course. We should know for sure if this is what Bogart was teasing in a few months.


Redbull caught up with Andrew Newey from Sidebar Games for a chat about the hit Switch game Golf Story. Newey commented on the project’s Wii U origins, how Nintendo was involved, and a cut idea involving a split-screen two-player story mode.

Golf Story has an interesting connection to the real world that some may not have known about. This pertains to the latter section of the game, so potential spoilers ahead.

Golf Story came out this week in the midst of much buzz. Despite being available for just a few days, it’s already climbed to the top of the eShop charts. The reception has definitely gone over well, but Golf Story does have some issues. Players have come across bugs and other small problems that do need to be addressed – you can see an extensive list here.

Fortunately, Sidebar Games intends to patch the game. The developer has been made aware of all the various issues and should be addressing them over time. No word yet on when the first update is going live, but we’ll let you know when there’s any news.


Sidebar Games published the launch trailer for Golf Story ahead of tomorrow’s release. See the new video below.
