I believe the primary reason they showed off demos using Wii Sports Resort was timing: it's fairly evident that the games in development for the 3DS were not that far along, and even in order to get a couple minimal demos together, they had to rely on existing assets like Wuhu Island (or from resurrected N64 games like Star Fox).

That being said, Wuhu is the perfect setting for Pilotwings, and the inclusion of "Resort" in the title indicates that it's going to be central to the new game, not just one map amongst others. As for Mario Kart, on the other hand, I'd say that it's possible the Wuhu track won't even remain in the final game. That's not to say that it would be unusual if it did stick around; they already integrated Mii's in Mario Kart Wii, so Wuhu is not all that out of place.

As for the topic of making Mario Kart more like Smash Bros by having more general crossover material: yuck, I'd prefer it avoid that at all costs, personally. Mii's and locations like Wuhu are one thing, but I don't want the Mario universe to suddenly start intersecting with Zelda, Metroid, etc. It would ruin the identity of the Kart series for me.

It does feel weird that WuHu island is becoming the hub for all these different Nintendo Games. Of all the possible places in Nintendos realm, that was the last one I would call for a hub.

Well, its the only place of a Nintendo franchise that isnt heavily associated with the franchise itself. What I mean is: Wii Sports is merely a media for using Miis in a special enviroment for performing certain activities. It has no story of its own, making Wuhu Island the perfect neutral ground.

Basically this. Besides, I don't really see Nintendo creating a new area from scratch when Wuhu is perfectly suited to do just that. I have very little doubt in my mind that Nintendo didn't create Wuhu exclusively for Wii Sports Resort.

Exactly.

Now all they need is to make it a hub.
(It would be awesome in games like mario sports mix or wii party)
It could be like a MMO town...

Perhaps Nintendo meant it to become a hub town ... we just didn't know it at first glance.

I really hope that crashing in Pilotwings results in the plane exploding like in the SNES, and not just spinning around like in the N64 one.

Oh, and with the crossover thing for Mario Kart. It's called MARIO Kart. It should just be Mario. SSB gets away with it because it doesn't really refer specifically to Nintendo.

Ultimately Nintendo can work Wuhu Island is whatever game they want to. I don't see any problem with it being in a Mario Kart game :) I'm looking forward to racing around it

Oh, yeah. I'm fine with the Wuhu Island thing. I meant like if they added Link or Samus or even Sonic into a Mario Kart game.

Didn't they add Pacman once?

That would be cool. I think it should be like the Sunshine stage in Brawl where it travels to various places around the island. Make sure they remember to stop inside the volcano for a while! :)

Those stunt planes could form the level platforms, keep shifting formation, and it flies all round the island :)
