REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– On July 26, Nintendo invites everyone to kick back and transform their living rooms into a tropical island adventure with the Wii Sports Resort™ video game, the next chapter in the Wii Sports phenomenon. Wii Sports Resort introduces a new era of motion controls with 12 resort-themed sports enhanced by the included Wii MotionPlus™ accessory. This accessory attaches to the base of the Wii Remote™ controller to bring exacting precision to games that are specially designed for it. Wii MotionPlus recognizes the slightest twist or turn of the Wii Remote controller to bring players deeper into their games. Wii Sports Resort leverages this technology as players escape to a virtual resort and experience all the fun activities of the island setting.

The 12 sports (archery, basketball, bowling, golf, table tennis, Swordplay, Air Sports, canoeing, cycling, Frisbee®, Power Cruising and wakeboarding) allow players to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk™ controllers in different ways, and while some sports require both controllers, others can be played using only the Wii Remote. In archery, players hold the Wii Remote vertically like a bow while drawing back the Nunchuk. In Frisbee, players motion with the Wii Remote as though they were tossing a real Frisbee. And while playing wakeboarding, players hold the Wii Remote sideways as though they were hanging onto the end of a tether behind a speedboat.

This information comes from the Capcom Unity forums. Capcom’s VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, Christian Svensson, was asked why “online [is] so essential in 360 and PS3 games, but [gamers] haven’t seen an online Wii game.” Mr. Svensson’s reply can be read below.

“As a counter point… Dark Void (a 360/PS3/PC game) has NO co-op or multiplayer, online or offline. There we’re focusing on trying to make the best single player experience we could rather than spreading the resources we have too thinly.

Same theory here. Trying to make the best co-op brawling experience we can without spreading our resources too thinly. If you wanted online co-op, something else would have to have to have been sacrificed and if the core experience isn’t satisfying, then there’s no point in making it an online non-satisfying experience.

First time out with a new team, on a new title on new tech (while very talented, they’d never done a Wii game) with a sizable budget, there’s already more than enough risk in the project. We didn’t (and still don’t) view online co-op as the feature that was buy/no buy for the majority of the audience we’re seeking to reach if we make a good game. Everything else, as I’ve said before, can come in the sequel (God willing we sell enough to have one).”

Moon has been out in North America since January, but our friends over in Europe received their first chance to play the title this month. This leaves me with the perfect chance to provide my view on the game. Head past the break to read my rambling thoughts!
