Dust Off Your MotionPlus for Wii Play: Motion in June

A sequel after all this time

2006's Wii Play was once the best-selling game in the US ever, so the only surprise is that it's taken Nintendo so long to announce a sequel.

Wii Play: Motion is Nintendo's new pack-in title for the Wii Remote Plus, heading to North America on 13th June. Containing 12 minigames that all require the MotionPlus — or bundled black Wii Remote Plus — Wii Play: Motion will be hoping to ape its predecessor's sales success.

Judging from the box art and press release, players will be engaging in a little mole-whacking, flying disc-throwing and umbrella-wielding. We'll have more on Wii Play: Motion as 13th June approaches.

Wii owners will be twisting, turning and enjoying themselves like never before, whether they’re newcomers to the console or have already discovered the fun of the popular Wii Play game. From catching a gust of wind by tilting an umbrella to fending off garden pests by swinging a mallet, each of the 12 included games will have players smiling wide as they use their Wii Remote Plus controller (or Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus™ accessory) in a variety of interesting, sometimes unexpected ways. Wii Play: Motion comes packaged with a Wii Remote Plus controller – which combines the original Wii Remote controller with the precision of Wii MotionPlus – to deliver great value, precise motion control and immersive social fun that anyone in the household can pick up and instantly enjoy.
