Wii Sports Club available now!

A few months ago, Nintendo revealed during their Fitness Nintendo Direct that Wii Sports was getting upgraded to HD and renamed to Wii Sports Club.  Well, today it is officially available as a FREE download.  Note that this is just the hub for Wii Sports, and the actual games like Bowling and Tennis can be purchased for $9.99 each, or you can play the game for 24 hours for $1.99.  When you first download the hub, you can play Bowling or Tennis FREE for 24 hours to “demo” it.  Finally, note that all of the sports will support ONLINE play, so you don’t need to have a party at your house to play these games all the time.

Remember that all of these Wii Sport games will require Motion Plus, so you will either need the updated Wii Remotes, or the little Motion plus gadget that attaches to the original controllers to enjoy these games.  See the official press release below:

 

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The five beloved sports from the original Wii Sports game – bowling, tennis, baseball, boxing and golf – are making a dramatic and competitive return on Wii U. Starting today, two of the five sports – tennis and bowling – are now available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.

The sports are being released individually as downloads in the Nintendo eShop, and feature HD graphics, enhanced controls via Wii MotionPlus technology, as well as a much-requested online multiplayer versus mode, so users with broadband Internet access can face off against friends and family members online. Players can choose to associate themselves with various state or regional clubs and can send messages to one another via Miiverse. People can play casually against members of their own club, or take on members of rival clubs to increase their club rankings.

Wii U owners who download Wii Sports Club will get a free trial pass that will let them play any available sports for a 24-hour period from when the Wii Sports Club game is started. Once the trial period ends, players can purchase two types of passes exclusively available in the Nintendo eShop: a Day Pass for $1.99 to play all available sports for a 24-hour period, or a Club Pass to gain permanent access to individual sports for $9.99 each.
