Don’t Forget Wii Sports Club Launches In US Stores On July 25th For Wii U

wii_sports_club_us_boxart

It’s a full count. One more out will win you the game. Standing on the pitcher’s mound, you study the batter and aim for the outside corner. You take a deep breath and unleash the baseball toward home plate. The ball curves just as you planned. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the bat cracks and the ball soars into the air. You thrust your arms in the air, poised to catch the fly ball. Catch it and the game is over. You win. The ball falls closer and closer to your outstretched hands …

While this sounds like an intense game of real-life baseball, it is actually the experience anyone can have using the GamePad controller in Wii Sports Club, which arrives in stores on July 25. The Wii U game includes updated and reimagined versions of Tennis, Bowling, Golf, Baseball and Boxing from the original Wii Sports game for Wii, with each sport using Wii MotionPlus technology and new GamePad features for enhanced control.

The implementation of the Wii U GamePad controller brings some surprising and fun features to Wii Sports Club. In Baseball, for example, the pitcher aims a fastball, curveball, screwball or splitter by simply moving the GamePad around in real space and pressing a button to throw. If the ball gets hit in the air, players use the GamePad to follow and catch the fly ball – just like they would with a baseball glove. In Golf, players place the GamePad on the floor to see the ball they are about to hit on the screen of the GamePad. It will appear on the same surface shown in the game – on the fairway, in a sand trap or in the rough. After players swing their Wii Remote Plus controllers like a real golf club, the ball will “fly” from the GamePad screen to the main TV screen and toward the virtual pin. The added GamePad features elicit the same “You have to try this!” reactions generated after playing the original Wii Sports game.

“With so many features packed into Wii Sports Club, players of all ages will feel like they are playing the game for the first time,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Wii Sports Club is the definitive version of Wii Sports and the perfect showcase for the unique game-play experiences enabled by the Wii U GamePad controller.”

In a new online multiplayer mode, gamers from the same region who own the game and have a broadband Internet connection can play Wii Sports Club together. Players also can join a club to represent their regions and build online communities with fellow club members by sending tips, pep talks and other messages via Miiverse.

The retail version of Wii Sports Club launches in stores on July 25 at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The digital versions of all five sports are now available and can be purchased in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. A 48-hour free trial of all five sports is also available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U until Dec. 31.

Here’s Plenty Of New Hyrule Warriors Information

Not only did the latest edition of Famitsu contain plenty of scans which showcased some of the familiar characters featured in Hyrule Warriors, but it also contained a wealth of interesting information. The latest edition of Famitsu goes into depth about several things including the boomerang and also the Skulltula collecting system.

Boomerang

  • You can obtain the boomerang from a treasure chest and use it as an item
  • If the boomerang hits an enemy, it will make it stand still for a short amount of time
  • You may also acquire strengthening item which transform the boomerang into the Gale Boomerang
  • Gale Boomerang springs forth a tornado which will make enemies float
  • If enemies are hit when they are midair they will take more damage than usual Skulltulas
  • There are 100 Gold Skulltulas in the world – One will appear as an enemy if certain special conditions are met
  • If you slay one, you will get an illustration piece – You can find information about Skulltulas in the stage select screen – You will know that a Skulltula has appeared from a spider web like marker on the map which also pins down the location
  • Then you have limited time to find and slay it
  • If you are nearby, you will hear a rustling sound – In the picture, one of the Skulltulas is under some large boulder so bombs are needed to uncover it
  • Skulltula appearance is related to used weapon/character, at least in some cases

Weapon bags

  • You can pick weapon bags from slayed enemies
  • Obtained weapons are random and you won’t know how good the weapon is until you clear the stage
  • You can also find “sealed weapons” from treasure boxes – These increase the amount of types of weapons that a character can use

Weapon information screen

  • Empty slot. You can fill these in the junk shop. At maximum you may have 8 skills.
  • Sealed skill. Needs to fill requirements to unlock. In the picture, you need to kill 3000 enemies
  • Skill (in picture “rupee increase”).
  • Attack power.
  • .Attribute. There are fire, water, lightning, light and darkness. If you use attribute that enemy is weak for, the damage will increase.
  •  Rarity of the weapon. More stars means rarer
  • Weapon name; in the picture it is a variation of Biggoron’s Sword

More details on weapons/shopping

  • Junk shop is part of the shopmall
  • In junk shop you can compose stronger weapons by switching skills
  • Ex: swap a skill from a powerful weapon into your favorite weapon
  • There are limits on how many skills of a same skill group you can have in one weapon at once – It seems that the weapon from which the skill is swapped from will turn into materials and so it is lost
