Nintendo announces HD, online Wii U revamp for Wii Sports games

Nintendo might not be actively participating in the Tokyo Game Show this week, but it’s doing its best to keep the Wii U in the headlines with updates to some best-selling Wii software. First up comes word that Nintendo will be releasing updated versions of the games from Wii Sports. The new games in Wii Sports Club will feature HD graphics, improved MotionPlus controls, and, most intriguingly, an online versus mode that groups players loosely together into regional “club” teams. Rather than re-releasing Wii Sports as a single package, though, Nintendo is dribbling out all five component games as individual releases, starting with Tennis and Bowling on November 7. Each game will sell for $9.99, a price that might seem a little galling considering the original game was a free pack-in with the original North American Wii, not to mention that Wii Sports first started selling with systems seven years old. Those not quite ready to take the full price plunge will be able to purchase a “day pass” for $1.99, or download limited-time free trials after purchasing other Wii Sports Club games.
