Wii Play: Motion To Come On June 24th

Wii Play was released back in December 2006, and has been a major success selling over 9 million copies in Europe, and over 26 million copies worldwide. Wii Play consisted of nine mini-games, including fishing and shooting. With the success of Wii Play, it is clear to see why Nintendo decided to spawn a sequel called Wii Play: Motion. This sequel will hit Europe on the 24th of June this year! In the U.S, Wii Play: Motion will be bundled with a black Wii Motion+ controller, while in Europe, it will be  bundled with a red Wii Motion+ controller.

Following in the footsteps as its predecessor, Wii Play: Motion will contain twelve mini-games, an extra three from Wii Play‘s nine. Each of these games can be played in single player or multi-player, allowing four people in total. Some of the mini-games you can expect to see are ‘Cone Zone’, where you tilt the controller to balance a cone holding a certain amount of ice-cream, or ‘Spooky Search, which uses the controllers speakers to locate ghosts that have scattered themselves around your living room. ‘Skip Skimmer’, another mini-game, where you skim stones across a lake, hoping the stone will make it through various rings to reach a target.

For me personally, this doesn’t sound too appealing. I’ve had my fair share of mini-games with Wii Sports, bundled with my Wii, and Wii Sports Resort. I do however like the red Wii Motion+ bundled with the game. This could be a great summer hit for the Wii, but who knows how it will sell being released a week after The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS. Also, it comes two weeks after the E3 expo in L.A at the start of June, where Nintendo are show-casing their new home console.

Has this game come at a bad time? Is it slightly dated?

    Meh, just seems boring to me. The Wii Play multiplayer games were good to play with my parents who couldn’t deal with anything more complicated. xD But I’ll definitely give this a miss and wait for news on the new console. 😀

      Would possibly be giving this a miss myself, although I like the red controller, therefore it would be my fourth and final. But I’ll be waiting for Skyward Sword myself. Being the next big Wii title. And possibly a Wii Motion+ bundle too? Perhaps a special Zelda Wii-mote? Hmmmmm….. 😀
