The game itself is the sequel to the highly acclaimed - Wii Sports. Wii Sports came free with every Wii Console sold worldwide. Due to the phenomenal success of the Wii, current estimates are that over 50 million copies have been sold. So over 50 million people have, and certainly played, the original game too.

I personally loved Wii Sports, it was hugely innovative, and is surprisingly addictive… This is the main reason I believe that Wii Sports Resort will be a huge success, and probably sell out very, very quickly!!! As I’m sure everyone will want to play the new games that are available with Wii Sports Resort. Early sales from Japan seem to agree with me: Gamasutra have reported that in the opening week 350,000 copies were sold, and after the second week a total of 514,000 copies have been shifted from the shelves!

With each copy of Wii Sports Resort sold, the new add-on Wii Motion Plus is bundled with it. This new accessory gives a new dimension, and greatly enhances the accuracy of the Wii Remote. Wii Sports Resort is also one of the first Wii Motion Plus games available on the market. (The others are EA Sports’ games Tiger Woods 10 for Wii and EA Grand Slam Tennis).

The original Wii Sports Resort only had 5 games: Tennis, Ten Pin Bowling, Baseball, Golf and Boxing . As a sequel Wii Sports Resort is expected to be bigger and better. So, they have supplied us with 12 new games to get our teeth into! These are all set on a beach resort (i.e. Wii Sports “Resort”) on a place called Wuhu Island. The games that you are able to play are: Frisbee, Power Cruising , Swordplay, Table Tennis, Golf, Air Sports, Basketball, Archery, Cycling, Bowling, Canoeing & Wakeboarding.
