REDMOND, Wash., April 14, 2009 – Nintendo is setting the stage for a blockbuster summer with the announcement of two hotly anticipated product releases. The new Wii MotionPlusā„¢ accessory will hit U.S. retailers on June 8, taking the motion-sensing controls of the popular Wiiā„¢ system to new levels of precision and performance. What’s more, these control enhancements will be on vibrant display when the Wii Sports Resortā„¢ game launches on July 26, offering a beach-themed follow-up to the groundbreaking Wii Sportsā„¢ game. Wii Sports comes packed with the Wii console. It grew into a worldwide phenomenon and continues to attract millions of new players to the world of video games. Each Wii Sports Resort game comes packed with a single Wii MotionPlus accessory.

When used with specially designed games, Wii MotionPlus tracks players’ movements in finer detail and with greater accuracy than ever before, building upon the innovative wireless function of the motion-sensing Wii Remoteā„¢ controller. Even the slightest twist of the wrist or turn of the body is replicated exactly on the TV screen, allowing users to become even more immersed in Wii game play. Designed for easy attachment to the Wii Remote controller, the Wii MotionPlus accessory will be offered at an MSRP of $19.99.

Wii Sports Resort takes the inclusive, fun and intuitive controls of the original Wii Sports to the next level, introducing a whole new set of entertaining and physically immersive activities.
