Wii Play Motion Gets Release Date for Europe on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The sequel to the hugely successful Wii Play has now got a release date for Europe. Nintendo announced it will be hitting stores on 24th June, 2011. Wii Play Motion continues the same style of gameplay as its predecessor, though this time it features MotionPlus integration, giving it a more robust control scheme and allowing for new ideas for mini-games.

Just like the first Wii Play, the game will also come packaged with a controller. This time, Nintendo are offering a red Wii Remote Plus with it.

Wii Play Motion features 12 mini-games to play through and all take advantage of the MotionPlus capabilities. All the games can also be played with up to three other players. The variety of mini-games include one where you must balance ice cream within a large waffle cone and one where your Wii Remote Plus acts as a winch, which is then used to collect treasure in a hunt.

Twist, turn, and move like never before with fun, motion-controlled experiences that come bundled with the Wii Remote Plus controller. Grip it like an umbrella, and tilt it around your body to ride gusts that blow you up, down, and to the finish line of a windy race course, or hold the controller like a mallet to strike pesky vermin from stealing vegetables from your garden. Players can even point the controller around the room to help find and capture invisible spooks. With multiple difficulty modes and game variations to unlock, up to four players can get caught up in the big action of the Wii Play: Motion game.

It depends on how much it costs. I've been waiting for a good reason to buy another controller. If this will cost €50-€55, I might go for it.

We all had a lot of fun with Wii Play. Smilie And I'll need WM+ for Zelda eventually.

I was thinking the same..but a red Wiimote Plus? No, thanks. I rather wait for a possible bundle with Skyward Sword(come on Nintendo, golden Wiimote!!) or buy a single black one instead. Might even get a black nunchuck while I'm at it, just because using my white one would look weird and you just got to have one nunchuck per Wiimote. Smilie

Mario-red isn't that bad... I hope.

WiiPlay was great value really, but I already have two MP now.

Theres also that lego motion plus wiimote to consider too Smilie

It worries me how much the quality of Nintendo's games have declined in the past 5 or so years. If someone had said to me 10 years ago that this was a Nintendo developed game, I would have said it was impossible. It's not just the quality either, it's the content.

I'm speaking in an overall sense here, since they did make one special game, Super Mario Galaxy and there's a few other great ones they developed.

Will not buy for more than 5 euros.
