July 10...a mere three months away!

A picture was taken at an Amsterdam gaming retailer which shows a much-hyped Wii Sports Resort coming bundled with the Wii MotionPlus accessory being released on July 10, 2009. It also shows the Wii Motion Plus “Controller” being sold as a separate item as well. This could mean that it would be a stand-alone accessory, or that it could be bundled with a Wii remote – hopefully the former.

At the last E3, Wii Sports Resort was said to be released in Spring 2009. It has been also rumored that Wii MotionPlus has been delayed since it is now Spring, and we have no firm release date. However, in an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime later said that the Spring line-up has not been fully announced.

Currently, in addition to Wii Sports Resort, the list of games that have been announced to use Wii MotionPlus include EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Red Steel 2.

UPDATE: According to Eurogamer, Nintendo is playing the 'this is just a rumour' card. Interesting.
