Hopefully this isn't the only Resort content to appear.

Seems pretty cool, though, wasn't the limited number of courses the big complaint people had?

I was wondering why the Wii Sports Club Miiverse was bumped back up to the top. It made me check out the shop to no avail to see if Baseball or something was added. Nice to see them add some content, I never got around to trying Golf myself.

I can imagine there might be. There may even be a retail release; even NES Remix 1 & 2 are getting one in Japan.

Whoops, thanks for correcting. Sloppy with my golf terminology.

It only has golf, tennis, and bowling with announced plans to add boxing and baseball. No plans for the Wii Sports Resort games to be released have been announced, but the fact they're adding Resort's golf holes gives me hope we may eventually see them.

Pretty sure it will happen eventually, even Iwata didn't deny the possibility. That's why I don't want to buy any sports at the moment.

To me, this works well as a downloadable "platform", and I expect Resort games in 2015 to keep it going.

Same here. I had a lot of fun with Golf in the trials, but I'm waiting till I'm absolutely sure there will be no disc version before buying any of them.

Yeah, lag in tennis at release was pretty bad... but that has been solved by now in my experience.

I have less problem in Tennis and for golf since it's turn base there's no problem.

Wow, that makes a BIG difference.

Holes are everything in golf, different holes are what gives the game its character. So a 50% increase in holes for a ridiculously content free game is a big deal. They need more, but I didn't expect anything so I'm pleasantly surprised.

Looks like the WiiU is getting turned on for the first time in a month tonight.

As much as I liked Golf in the original, and like the idea that they are adding courses, I found the controls to be so much harder here that I didn't end up getting this after the trial.

I really hope Wii Sports Club does well enough that they continue to port over the entire Wii Sports Resort library of events.

Though I suppose the investment in making online play viable for sword fighting might be outside the budget range for this product; dunno, maybe the Namco tech team would feel up to taking a crack at it.

This was one of my issues with golf in Sports Club. There were 9 new holes along with the original Wii Sports 9. That's exactly how many were in Wii Sports Resort golf which was 1/12 of a full-priced game.

It's good though that Nintendo at least did this obvious edition. Like others I'm waiting for a bundle deal. Doesn't need to be physical.

Yep. 27 holes is still weak, but it's better than 18. Hopefully they throw in more holes at some point (not expecting it though).

The use of the gamepad is perfect. Can't believe no one has put out a new golf game with these mechanics.
