April 14, 2009
Nintendo is setting the stage for a blockbuster summer with the announcement
of two hotly anticipated product releases. The new Wii MotionPlus accessory
will hit U.S. retailers on June 8, taking the motion-sensing controls of the
popular Wii system to new levels of precision and performance. What's more,
these control enhancements will be on vibrant display when the Wii Sports
Resort game launches on July 26, offering a beach-themed follow-up to the
groundbreaking Wii Sports game. Wii Sports comes packed with the Wii
console. It grew into a worldwide phenomenon and continues to attract
millions of new players to the world of video games. Each Wii Sports Resort
game comes packed with a single Wii MotionPlus accessory.
When used with specially designed games, Wii MotionPlus tracks players'
movements in finer detail and with greater accuracy than ever before,
building upon the innovative wireless function of the motion-sensing Wii
RemoteT controller. Even the slightest twist of the wrist or turn of the
body is replicated exactly on the TV screen, allowing users to become even

Wii Sports Resort takes the inclusive, fun and intuitive controls of the
original Wii Sports to the next level, introducing a whole new set of
entertaining and physically immersive activities. With the deep control
enhancements of Wii MotionPlus, veteran Wii users and newcomers alike can
enjoy unprecedented gaming precision as they cruise on a water scooter, duel
with swords, throw a Frisbee® and much more. Wii Sports Resort and Wii
MotionPlus will be offered together at an MSRP of $49.99.
"Wii MotionPlus represents a new evolution in video game control. The
variety of fun games in Wii Sports Resort show off its incredible
precision," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice
president of Sales & Marketing. "Developers around the world are busy
working on new ways to incorporate Wii MotionPlus controls into inventive
experiences for consumers."
