Lego has already said it wants to create more Nintendo-themed sets in the future - so what could be next? While The Legend of Zelda might seem like an obvious pick, how about one based on Wuhu Island from Wii Sports Resort instead? That sounds pretty relaxing, actually.
Lego and Nintendo fan 'Stacked Towels' has submitted the following creation to Lego Ideas - it features the clock tower from Wuhu Island and various two-player sports. Here's a brief rundown:
"The game has a heavy focus on multiplayer and general playability and that idea was brought to the model. Most of the games in Wii Sports Resort have been recreated in a two player competitive format, the rules of which are listed below. The exterior is modeled after the Wuhu plaza's Broken Clock Tower. There are ten Miis included and the model itself is 1600 bricks flat. In the future, I hope to add more Mii variety, suggestions are appreciated."
At the time of writing this project has received just over 1,000 supporters, with over 111 days left. If it reaches 10,000 - Lego will investigate and review the model further and maybe even consider a more official product in the future.
To cut to the chase, would you like to see Lego models based on Mii or the Wii Sports series? What do you think of this one? And would you like to return to Wuhu Island? We've had a strange desire to in recent times.
Wow super cool now let’s hope that Metroid one gets approved.
Edit: Also why is frisbee there? Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure nobody liked frisbee.
I would like to see Tt Fusion make LEGO SPORTS like Wii Sports / Sports Resort or LEGO VACATION ISLAND like Go Vacation.
Just do it, just make it already.
Enough with Western superheroes franchises on LEGO games.
I'm already sick with Western superheroes and other famous Western franchises.
@Anti-Matter that’s an interesting idea I wonder why they haven’t done it already, maybe too many sports games? no such thing lol.
What's Luke Cage doing there?
This reminded me, were the hell is the Sonic lego set?
@Snatcher in production, being designed. Lego sets usually change from fan idea to store shelves due to prints, part counts, etc. I’d bet money that Nlife will report on it when it gets revealed
WOOOO YES! Im liking it
@Anti-Matter You should try to make it a lego idea, you could use the 3d model app they have for it.
I need Lego Matt.
I know it wouldn’t be easy, but I would go bananas over a port/remaster of Wii Sports Resort on the Switch. Or maybe just a new title set on good ol’ Wuhu Island? Such a great setting for Nintendo’s more casual/party-type games, I hope it sees the light of day again in the near future.
@jingounchained I would love to see a sort of RPG that takes place on Wuhu Island, and would require the player to at least "master" one of the physical minigames in a manner of speaking for combat. Like archery, swordplay, or boxing... and transportation could be done via biking or jogging (sorta like Ring Fit Adventure)
@Finntendo64 I liked Frisbee Golf, and used to play it when my friends came over. It's like golf but easier.
Normal Frisbee though. Eh. 🥏🐕 😒
Grand Theft Wuhu needs to be a thing.
The image on the article on the homepage on Nintendo Life (and in the LEGO Ideas tweet) looks like it contains a LEGO Grian and what is presumably an interpretation of his mansion with the unfinished back.
Kinda weird I saw this. I just started playing wii sports resort again recently.
I want some custom LEGO Miis!
@Anti-Matter LEGO Sports has been a discussion point for some time. I think TT Games would be up for it, but the powers that be keep greenlighting franchise titles that are clearly deemed more profitable (Star Wars, Marvel, Batman, Jurassic World, rinse and repeat, etc etc)
That said, LEGO Worlds did happen... but I'm not sure that has exactly paved a way for more non branded LEGO games... rather hampered the possibility I'd suggest.
Tt Fusion should try for once in their chance not depending on famous Western franchises. Take some risk like LEGO CITY UNDERCOVER and it became success.
And Tt Fusion should know not everyone have interest with Western superheroes or Star Wars or Harry Potter or any famous Western franchises.
I think Pandora's box has been opened; Mii faces look perfect as Lego mini figures!
Now we need Miitopia's Mii faces photoshopped on some Lego's
@Anti-Matter unfortunately it's not up to TT. They're not an independent studio - haven't been for a long time. I agree with you though and I think it's a shame, but reality is they do what they're told...!
@Anti-Matter Lego Sports isn't the same as Lego City Undercover though.
Lego City is a well established toy line already and still followed the same general LEGO gameplay loop. All the Lego games have a similar gameplay loop with new levels, new coat of paint and maybe a new interaction or two.
But a Lego Sports game wouldn't be this, it'd be a game collection of sports which isn't exactly a Lego game if you ask me, there's few Lego games that have strayed from the formula, none did too well. How often do people talk about Lego Castle or Lego rock band?
Even Lego city undercover isn't the most popular Lego game.
There isn't much chance TT takes a risk when what they have works fine and still is.
I really wish there is another LEGO games with generic theme like Mii games on Wii, completely free from Western franchises influence so I can enjoy LEGO games with generic outfits, generic environments, normal peoples LEGO folks without got disturbed by Western franchises themes at all on it since I never like any of them.
I don't even like LEGO Rock band for awful Western songs choices and no short version songs for general rhythm games.
The only LEGO game I really like the most just LEGO CITY UNDERCOVER since the game has No Western superheroes, No popular Western franchises, No flashy outfits from Western franchises.
I tried LEGO Jurassic on PS4 for natural environment and normal outfits LEGO folks but it was really disappointing game as I still don't like with Jurassic franchises.
Please don't shut this Down Nintendo! Do something cool FOR ONCE!
