Hey Nintendo, this is cool and all but please, PLEASE don't spend any time talking about this at E3.
(assuming it hits retail in the west as well, of course)
My guess is, Nintendo probably wasn't too satisfied with sales for the DL version, and decided to just screw their original plan release everything at once at retail. Pretty sure we'll get the remaining 2 sports around the same title as DL, along with the retail version.
Hmm, Iwata said in half-year investor Q&A that 'I do not deny the possibility that Wii Sports Club may become packaged software in the future.' So maybe it has always been on the cards?
Yeah, I remember that one, but I find it strange they're suddenly announcing it now. They said the remaining sports would be released at a later date, but so far, we only got Golf. Baseball and Boxing have gone MIA, and then suddenly we get that retail release....... but no news about those 2 missing sports.
Pretty sure they realised the game wasnt attracting enough attention on the eShop? And I don't think there's any retail release for July, so they'd be able to fill their line-up a bit (like they did with NES Remix 1+2 last month).
first time seeing it. felt like the obvious thing that would happen. unlike the nes remix thing, i expect to see it in the us sometime this year. maybe october like wii party u was last year.
Watch as NOA make this the only way to get Baseball and Boxing.Manga entertainment in the UK did that with Noein. Volumes 4 and 5 never came out individually, you had to buy the series boxset instead.
I didn't notice any difference in either.
The biggest and most noticeable thing are the controls in this version of the classic sport. You now use a Wii Remote Plus controller, which makes the old school waggle a complete no-go here. You really have to move your arm and wrist correctly to hit the ball in the right direction and this is not a simple task in the beginning. As you learn the correct way to move, you will find that the first few matches might not go exactly well for you. However, when you learn how much impact a certain shot makes, you are pretty much set for life and ready to enjoy Tennis like everybody should.
If it comes out west and it's $20 or less (ha ha) then I can see myself picking it up.
Still hoping that the NES Remix disc comes stateside. I've held off getting the games off the eShop in the hope that the retail release comes out here. Not looking very likely, though.
I don't get why they're limiting this to just the original 5 games. Make this a greatest hits of Wii Sports or something.
