Wii Sports Club is a collection of the original five sports titles from Wii Sports. This includes tennis, bowling, baseball, golf, and boxing. Tennis and bowling will be available starting November 7th, while the other sports will follow at a later time. However, instead of being able to purchase all of the sports at once, Nintendo is making gamers pay for each sport separately. For the low price of $9.99 each – or $50 altogether – you can own a game that was included in all Nintendo Wii systems at launch. Or if that sounds like too much of a good deal for you, perhaps you will be interested in buying a “day-pass” for $1.99 per day. Just look at how generous these guys at Nintendo are.
In a slightly better deal, Wii Fit U will be available as a free demo through the eShop beginning November 1st. After downloading the title, gamers will have up to a month to decide if they like it. If they do, they can keep the title with a purchase of The Fit Meter for $20. The Fit Meter is a piece of equipment that serves as both a pedometer and a way for you to see how intense your workout is. Of course, in order to use Wii Fit U, you will also need to bust out your old Wii Balance Board. The game will also be available at retail beginning December 13th.
If you know Nintendo, then this announcement should come as no surprise. Wii U owners are already getting a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker in the coming weeks and Nintendo had previously released a few updated GameCube titles for the Wii. So while I may have little to no interest in these titles, there is clearly an audience out there for this stuff. Who knows, maybe Nintendo can draw a few casual fans to their struggling system?
