Game Profile

Pilotwings Resort puts the player in the pilot’s seat as never before in this long-awaited three-dimensional update to the Pilotwings™ series!

Import your Mii™ characters from the Nintendo 3DS Mii Maker™ and explore Wuhu Island (the star of Wii Sports Resort™ and Wii Fit™ Plus) by plane, by hang glider and by rocket belt. Each vehicle type features unique controls that offer a different challenge. Complete around 40 challenging flight missions in Mission Mode to earn stars, or scour Wuhu Island for hundreds of collectible Extras in Free Flight Mode as you unlock interactive 3D Dioramas of various aircraft and famous island monuments.

Get a bird’s-eye view of familiar Wuhu Island sites – and a few new ones! You can even share your experiences with friends and family members by taking in-game photos and saving them to the Nintendo 3DS photo album. Pilotwings Resort is an aerial sports game gem that offers amazing 3D views of Wuhu Island.

Game Features:

  • Soar through the skies over the tropical Wuhu Island in a hang glider, rocket belt or plane each with its own unique controls, distinct feel of flight and new game play
  • Mission Mode and Free Flight Mode offer a wealth of activities, challenges and game play for gamers of all tastes. Leisurely soar around Wuhu Island and explore and catalogue points of interest, or fly competitively in missions that are based on time and points.
  • Take control of an amazing 3D flying experience with your Mii characters. Pilotwings Resort pulls your personal Mii character from the Mii Maker application, and features the Mii as the star of this adventure.
  • Pilotwings Resort features a breadth and depth of field that can only be achieved with the 3D effects of Nintendo 3DS, offering a feel and style of play never before seen in an aerial sports game.
  • Share the fun with family and friends. You can snap photos of postcard-perfect locales on Wuhu Island with the hang glider in Free Flight Mode and as part of select challenges in Mission Flight Mode.
  • Photos of your aerial adventures on Wuhu Island may be saved to the Nintendo 3DS photo album and shared with your friends and family.

Flashy and fun!

Pilotwings titles have always been showpieces for Nintendo's new hardware, and Pilotwings Resort is no exception. It's clear from the moment you begin playing the game that the developers created the game in an effort to show off the fancy 3D visuals and...

Nintendo's 3DS family of console owes its success to its uncanny ability to appeal to players of all ages, but like so many of the company's products, the core of the range is designed around appealing to the younger end of the spectrum.

PilotWings returns after a billion years

Hmm...mixed feelings about this. I've been waiting ages for a new PilotWings game, but this is just set on the Wii fit/ Wii Sports Resort island, which you could already fly over in WSR. Ehh..



ExploderReviews said:

Wii sports resort flyover, sure, but the thing is theres gonna be more vehicles then just a plane, its portable, and it will probobly be in 3d.



Hokori said:

This game looks like itll be bundled with the 3DS for some odd reason



SafariSuz said:

|sf>I wonder if this will use some of the gyroscopic features of the hardware. I wasn't impressed by SNES Pilotwings (which I tried on VC), but I greatly enjoy the plane game within the Wii Sports Resort. It would be a nice tip of the hat for Nintendo to have this completed for launch.



Iggy said:

Once theres more information about this game ill make a decision if ill buy it or not. But a flying game would be awesome on the 3DS if done right. I really dont play any flying games so ill defentally be looking foward to this game.




Would've been more intriguing to have a wiimotionplus pilotwings imho. Will this have gyroscopic tilt control?



salty1264 said:

honestly the snes one looks better and the island is the exact same as the wii sports resort



Dodger said:

This could be really good if they expand on the Wii Sports Resort flying game and add a lot more content and things to do. I really liked the flying game.



ianmage1 said:

I hope you can do a lot more than fly an airplane, hangglide, and jetpack, it seems like there should be at least 10 different things you could choose to do. But this will probably be my first purchase.



dan561 said:

Looks great but also looks like the type of game that you'll run out of stuff to do in within several hours.



gingerbeardman said:

This is a ridiculously good game. Can't get enough of it, and am currently 5 hours in, just seen the credits for the first time, unlocked the extra class and haven't even touched free flight mode.



Glade said:

Wow.. Doesn't look like it has much content...
This should have been bundled with the game Instead....



gingerbeardman said:

This game is balanced to perfection. A complete joy and work of art from start to finish, and will take you 10-15 hours to get 100% and perfect on everything. Despite there being only one island (a major hangup for a lot of reviewers) it is constantly inventive and full of surprises. It took my 9h30 to three-star all 42 missions and find everything in free Flight Mode. In fact, Free Flight mode took me longer than mission mode. I'm going to chip away at getting perfects now...very tricky... I could be a while!



Waxedfloss76 said:

i'm a big fan of wii sports resort....pwr as fun as that
graphics 9-10
sound 10-10
fun 12
played over 10 hrs...



Yoshidude said:

#25 is right. The game only lasted 16 hours for me and I haven't touched it in a while.



WaveGhoul said:


Only 16 hours? This isn't an RPG, it's freakin' PilotWings.lol
I've logged in over 18 hours and I'm still not quite finished flight mode....Well almost!



Dublubby said:

Love this game, the sound quality, the picture quality, everything. It's beautiful.



Link-Rogers said:

that would be cool if you can also go in a cabin or the cabanas on the beach, or the two hotels... its hard to hear the mario sounds because of the loud music... you can quiet the music but will it quiet the mario as well?



Kenchi said:

This game looks like something that I would enjoy quite a lot but I refuse to pay $40 for it. Nope.
