Wii Sports Club Launches Tomorrow with Tennis and Bowling Plus Free 24-Hour
Trial Available for Wii U
Face off against players from other countries in a new online
multiplayer versus mode
WINDSOR, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 11/06/13 -- Begin your
warm up routine in preparation for a new round of competitive action
as Wii Sports Club - presenting remastered sports from the original
Wii Sports - releases exclusively on Nintendo eShop(1) for Wii U
tomorrow, 7th November, with the sports Tennis and Bowling available
from launch(2). With a new online multiplayer versus mode allowing
you to join a club and challenge players from other countries(3),
plus HD graphics and enhanced controls via Wii MotionPlus technology,
which add an extra layer of precision to how you play, the
competition is set to be more intense than ever before!
If you are a Wii U owner who downloads Wii Sports Club, you will get
a trial pass that will let you play any available games for a 24-hour
period from when the Wii Sports Club game is started for the first
time. Once the trial period ends, you can purchase a Day Pass(4) on
Nintendo eShop for GBP 1.79(5) to play all available sports for a
24-hour period, or can buy permanent access to individual sports for
GBP 8.99 each.
In the new online multiplayer versus mode, you can choose to
represent a particular geographic region or nation(6) via a
club-based format, giving you the ability to compete casually with
other local players in your club online, or even take on other clubs
and help propel yours to the top of a ranking system. In short, the
greater your personal win percentage against competitors from
different clubs, the higher your club will rise up the rankings.
Alternatively, you can view how your performances compare against
other members of your club. For example in Bowling, if you find other
club members have a higher average score per game, it might be time
to perfect those 7-10 splits a little longer! When competing online,
don't forget you can also interact with other players via Miiverse
during a game, with the option to send pre-written short messages or
posts to congratulate or commiserate with your opponent.
