Wii Sports Club Free Trial Swings Into Play in Europe and Australia

Starting... now

Last week we reported that, in addition to a free worldwide content update that added the Wii Sports Resort Wuhu Island course to Wii Sports Club: Golf, North American gamers were also receiving another free trial weekend, which kicks off today. We enquired at the time whether there'd be an equivalent trial in Europe and Australia,...

Review: Wii Sports Club: Golf (Wii U eShop)

Wii Sports Club: Golf (Wii U eShop)

Definitely under par (that's a good thing)

It seems slightly odd that, nearly two-and-a-half years after it made an appearance in the big reveal of Wii U at E3 2011, we now finally get to play Wii Sports Club: Golf. Perhaps unlike its contemporaries to date — Bowling and Tennis — this is the first of the new download-only series that feels like...

Wii Sports Club: Golf Swings Onto the Wii U eShop

Available now and includes an extra retro-inspired course

Rumoured yesterday due to system maintenance targeting its app, Nintendo today used its Nintendo Direct broadcasts to confirm that Wii Sports Club: Golf is available right now in Europe and North America. When you log into the game (or download it for the first time) you should automatically...

System Maintenance Targeting Wii Sports Club Shortly After Nintendo Direct

What a coincidence

As many Nintendo enthusiasts likely already know, tomorrow will bring another Nintendo Direct broadcast to capture our attention. Coincidentally — or not, as the case may be — a short burst of system maintenance will affect Wii Sports Club online play and rankings shortly after that broadcast. Below are the compiled details...

Wii Sports Club: Bowling (Wii U eShop)

No splits here

When it comes to the games in the original Wii Sports that felt the most realistic and compelling, Bowling would have to be a candidate as the best of the lot. Golf and Baseball may have a say, too, while Tennis and Boxing — most definitely the latter — perhaps had the greatest degree of waggle. The fact Bowling reappeared in...

Review: Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop)

Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop)

What the deuce?

Way back at E3 2011, in that Wii U reveal that rather bizarrely confused half of those watching, Nintendo showed remixes of Wii Sports events that showed the GamePad being utilised in creative ways. It's perhaps surprising that over two years after that visual demo, we're just now seeing the iconic Wii pack-in make its way to...

Talking Point: Regional Online Multiplayer Misses the Point

Regional Online Multiplayer Misses the Point

Wii Sports Club keeps it local, unless you're in a PAL territory

Nintendo can work in mysterious ways at times, especially when it comes to online modes. Some will feel that the company doesn't actually deliver enough online gaming — with many titles committed to local multiplayer only — while we have others serving up regional online play...

News: Packaged Physical Release of Wii Sports Club May Happen

Packaged Physical Release of Wii Sports Club May Happen

Might not be an exclusive digital offering

Nintendo is a smart cookie when it comes to milking franchises. Its products, services, and software regularly offer the perfect balance of new and old. The latest example of this is Wii Sports Club – a digital remake of the original Wii Sports in HD, with online play and Miiverse functionality joining...
