UPDATED: Nintendo Wii Sports Resort to launch in June
Nintendo will release the next edition of their popular Sports package in June this year to catch up with other console sales.
Wii Sports Resort will feature up to 10 games and include jet skiing, throwing a frisbee to a dog (probably better than it sounds) and a sword fighting game based on kendo, as pictured.
The package will be used to increase sales of the Wii which was over taken in March in Japan by the PS3 for the first time in 16 months. The family console still rules the roost worldwide but it’s hoped that the addition of this truly Wii-unique offering will win back Nintendo’s crown in the mother country.
Wii Sports Resort will work with the Wii MotionPlus new and improved controller and will allow gamers to control on-screen action with a virtual remote control as well as a host of other nuances.
UPDATE: 12th June is the date to pen in your diaries for the Wii MotionPlus to hit the shelves in Europe and the Wii Sports Resort will follow shortly after on the 24th June and will come packed with a Wii MotionPlus.
