Nintendo has released a launch trailer for Wii Sports Club. Two of the five sports from the game – tennis and bowling – are featured in the video and are now available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. Boxing, golf and baseball will launch soon. The sports are being released individually as downloads, and they contain ungraded controls, HD graphics and online multiplayer. Nintendo recently revealed that Wii Sports Club may eventually become packaged software.
Damn, this feels amazing.
Breathe it in, brother.
Nintendo marketing Wiiu?? this is real life???
Cool! Tennis and Bowling are the only ones I really want! :D
Wtf are you talking about tennis sucks. All you do is swing you dont even get to control your running.
It’s a lot of timing + you use motion+ controlls
There are two Miis on the court now, so if your back mii is going to miss, swing quick for the front one to smack the ball back. It’s not direction control, but it helps.
20 bucks for the only two games that matter from Wii Sports. Not a bad deal.
Boxing was my favorite, but that’s to violent for Nintendo to provide online play.
Happy to see grandparents get online play while the rest of us get shafted on this years 1st party titles.
This should get the job done. I also think the eventual golf trailer will do a great job showing off the console’s capabilities. Using the gamepad as a tee, and seeing the golf ball fly into your tv is really intriguing stuff, especially for the market they’re targeting here.

Add your thoughts here… (optional)
why aren’t they calling it Wii U Sports Club instead of wii sports club??? They need to take every opportunity they have to hammer home that new name
They enjoy low WiiU sales and confused masses.
this should get the job done – along with a stream of games people actually want play.. Baby steps.,
bowling is awesome, works really well online. Tennis is fun too but when I play online I keep losing. Some players hit the ball so fast it isn’t even funny. what i don’t really like it when I win in local single player, my level increases, but when I lose online my level decreases, so depressing.But I guess it’s fair.
I like it, but I do want ping pong, from wii sports resort. That´s the one for me.
COMMERCIAL LIKE THIS WITH OLD FARTS AND KIDS MAKES THE WII-U LOOK LAME
WHO THE HELL PLAYS GAMES WITH 90YEAR OLDS THEY COULD BARELY USE A CELL PHONE LET ALONE PLAY UP TO DATE GAMES THEY’L PROBABLY CATCH A STROKE.(SORRY FOR THE CAPS KEYBOARDS BROKE)
they are trying to show that all gamers of all ages are welcome to their platform and products. they are not going after the same demographic that Sony and Microsoft are going after. I thought you already knew that. don’t you remember that the Wii was a success because of the casual gamer market
Yeah even so, these ad’s are just lame. I have not seen a convincing Wii U ad as yet, they all make me cringe, and I a big supporter of the Wii U having owned one since launch. The acting and directing is terrible, and those fake smiles, oh the fake smiles, which lead onto the fake fun, oh the fake fun…tragic really
Reblogged this on TrueSelfGaming.
I forgot how great bowling is, can’t wait for the Golf..
Oh yeah, their target audience is babies and grannies. Who cares if their sales increased a bit, if the only ones interested in the Wii U are babies and grannies. All major triple A games will continue to skip the baby Wii U. More baby Mario and whatnot games please.
The poor oudtated last gen Mii’s are still armless, I guess the 70 extra polygons to make them arms would bring their underpowered running on 7 year old hardware console to a crawl lolol.
If you knew anything about computers at all you would know that the Wii U uses Directx 10.1 with some Directx 11 equivalent features..that is certainly a more capable set of graphics features than the PS3 or Xbox 360 had, both using the very old Directx 9.
So this is why it is regarded as half way between the PS3/4 for instance, which was a decision Nintendo made based on the feeling that there is not that much of a difference between high end and medium graphics these days, a sentiment I agree with. I bet you would struggle to notice the difference between medium and high setting on most PC games if you didn’t know before hand tbh. I can tell you I can’t sometimes and I have a very high end PC, therefore Nintendo were right imo.
So, if it is a choice between a heavy, hot, and big machine that can do slightly better graphics, or a small, sleek, cool machine that with slightly worse graphics, I’ll take the former. If I really want graphics, I got steam after all.
A little off topic here, but couldn’t help notice that the music they used in the above commercial sounds remarkably similar to Blink 182’s “What’s my age again?” Makes sense though…older citizens acting young again and having fun! :)
