Nintendo of Europe has today confirmed the date of Wii Sports Resort, plus released more info on the game. This summer Wii gamers will be able to head to a sun-drenched island full of twelve sports that take full advantage of the Wii Remote's MotionPlus add-on.
Featuring action ranging from the adrenaline-filled to the fitness-focused, expect Wii Sports Resort to make waves when it launches across Europe on 24th July, bundled with the brand new Wii MotionPlus accessory.
Wii MotionPlus, which plugs into your existing Wii Remote, gives players an even more immersive, realistic gaming experience. Every sport featured in Wii Sports Resort responds with unprecedented accuracy to your exact angle of your arm. Every movement you make with your wrist or arm will be rendered identically in real time on the screen.
Never before have so many sports been so accurately modelled to experience in the comfort of your own home! If you're a thrill-seeker, you should head straight for Wuhu Islands' beautiful coast and try out some power cruising, wakeboarding or canoeing, either on your own or with friends. And, when the adrenaline is really pumping, climb aboard the island's seaplane and take to the skies for a spot of parachute-based air sports action...
Sometimes, the competitive streak in us all needs answering - and that's what table tennis and basketball courts were invented for! Every last bit of spin will be faithfully mirrored in the former, and with Wii MotionPlus that surprise backhand is now perfectly possible, while there's nothing more satisfying than besting your friends in a classic basketball three-point challenge.
Or perhaps you fancy a test of real skill and precision? If so, then the archery range is perfect. Test your aim on a variety of targets, but be careful to take the wind factor and distance into account… Then move on to some swordplay - watching your opponent carefully to spot his weak spot before launching your precise strike. Duel with friends, test your accuracy with the speed slice challenge, where you'll need to cut objects in an indicated way as fast as possible or see how many opponents you can best in one go…
If, after all this action, you need something a bit more leisurely, why not go cycling around the island and take in the view, head to the beach for some Frisbee or to the fairway for a round or two of golf, on the lush, all-new greens created for Wii Sports Resort? And, while rain will never spoil the fun on this island, that doesn't mean you shouldn't take the time to visit the new bowling alley indoors.
Wii Sports Resort offers the best bundle of fun you can have with friends and family this summer. Get your hands on one of the most eagerly-anticipated games of the year from 24th July, when it launches across Europe bundled with Wii MotionPlus - and get ready to have the sports holiday of your life, without leaving home!
