Harry Potter actors go head to head to promote Nintendo Switch Sports

Nintendo released its latest game Switch Sports. The game was promoted by two actors from Harry Potter, but the duo isn’t the one you’d expect.

Calling all Harry Potter fans and gamers. Nintendo released Switch Sports on April 29 which is a successor to Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort. Nintendo organised an event over the weekend to promote the game's release and invited two unexpected guests.

Slytherin and Gryffindor getting along

To promote the release of Nintendo Switch Sports, Nintendo organised a three-day event this past weekend (April 29 - May 1). Two popular actors from the Harry Potter franchise were invited to try out the game. The chosen two were none other than Tom Felton and Matthew Lewis, who played Draco Malfoy and Neville Longbottom respectively.

The pairing seems unusual given their characters’ relationship in the films. This proves that on set the two actually got along well. Or maybe they just really like the game. In fact, they were so into the game that they even dressed the part when they played tennis and bowling.
