Nintendo announces Wii Sports Club for Wii U eShop

Features HD graphics, MotionPlus, online multiplayer

Wii Sports is back and ostensibly better than ever! The collection of sports games that started a cultural phenomenon is returning in high-definition with MotionPlus controls, Miiverse functionality, and competitive online multiplayer.

Each of the title’s five sports will be available individually for $9.99 via the Nintendo Wii U eShop. Tennis and bowling will be the first to take the field on November 7, with baseball, golf, and boxing to follow at a later date.

In Wii Sports Club, players will join regional clubs that provide opportunities for casual intramural play in addition to more competitive showdowns with rival clubs. Each sport will come with a free 24-hour trial version, with additional day passes going for $1.99 a pop.
