Whether you loved it or hated, it’s hard to deny the allure that Wii Sports brought to the original Wii way back when the console launched. This game was a primary reason to buy the system for the casual market, and it lead to a crazy amount of sales for Nintendo.
Now, Wii Sports Club is slowly releasing for the Wii U. Complete with HD graphics, online multiplayer and Wii MotionPlus controls, this is the definitive version of what became a classic so many years ago.
Starting today, you can pick up Tennis and Bowling. Each sport will cost $9.99, and Nintendo is selling them à la carte; so, only buy the ones you want. You can download any of the sports for free and play them over a 24 hour trial period if you’d like to test them out.
If you’re hosting a party but don’t want to buy the full package, you can rent each sport again for $1.99 over a 24 hour span. I’m not sure I like this option, but it might make sense for a once or twice play session. Say you only host two or three get-togethers a year, spend a couple of bucks and play Wii Sports games. Or, you know, just eat and drink.
Tennis and Bowling look great, but I’m still waiting for golf. That was the true gem of Wii Sports as far as I’m concerned.
Nintendo News: Wii Sports Club – Tennis and Bowling Now Available for Download
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.
