One of the most popular titles for the Nintendo Wii has got to be its Wii Sports titles as they allowed players to make full use of the system as they wave around their Wii remote to play a number of sports-related mini-games. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Wii Sports title for the Wii U console yet, but Nintendo is announcing they’re bringing all five Wii Sports activities through the Nintendo eShop.
Wii Sports Club will feature HD graphics, enhanced controls through Wii MotionPlus technology and “a much-requested online multiplayer versus mode, so users with broadband Internet access can face off against competitors online.” Players will be registered to either state or regional clubs and will be able to chat with one another through Miiverse while playing against one another. You’ll be able to play casual games against members of your club, or you can take on rival club members to increase your club’s overall ranking.
The first two sports that will be made available on the Nintendo eShop starting on November 7 will be Tennis and Bowling, with Boxing, Baseball and Golf expected to be released over the next couple of months. Wii Sports Club will sell each sport individually for $9.99, or you can purchase a Day Pass to be able to play all of the available sports for up to 24 hours.
