About Wii Sports in brief
Wii Sports is a 2006 sports video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console. The game is a collection of five sports simulations, designed to demonstrate the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote. The five sports included are tennis, baseball, bowling, golf and boxing. The rules for each game are simplified to make them more accessible to new players. Wii Sports was well received by critics and received a number of awards. It is the bestselling single-platform game of all time, and fourth best overall. A sequel, Wii Sports Resort, was released in 2009, while a high-definition remake, Wii Sport Club, was launched in 2013 for the Nintendo Wii U. The in-game characters are taken from the Wii’s Mii Channel, which allows the user to create a Mii that can be imported into games that support the feature. Miis saved on the Wii will appear in the crowd during bowling games and as members of human-controlled teams in baseball. After a game, a player is awarded or penalized skill points based on performance relative to the computer’s skill level, though some games do not calculate points during multiplayer sessions. In tennis, player movement is controlled by the Wii, while the swinging of the racket iscontrolled by the player. In golf, the player moves the remote in a similar manner to how the separate games are played in real life; for example, holding and swinging the Wii remote like a golf club, baseball bat, tennis racket or bowling ball. A fitness test that calculates a player’s fitness age gauges the player’s performance in each test from the training mode that have been played at least once, and can only be taken once a day per Mii.
Fitness age results are graphed over one, two, or three months, with daily results posted on the Nintendo Message Board. In Tennis and Boxing single-player modes, players can earn medals by reaching certain scores, which range from bronze to platinum, being the hardest being bronze, and platinum being the easiest. In another sport, players earn medals for reaching certain points in Tennis and boxing single- player modes. In Bowling and Boxing, players are awarded 1000 skill points in a sport, along with a cosmetic feature for their Mii in bowling and Boxing. A Mii newly turned pro will receive a message on theNintendo Message Board notifying them. Wii Sports has been featured on television in Wii commercials, news reports, as well as other programming. It has become a popular means for social gatherings and competitions among players of varying ages. It was intended to offer something for both non-gamers and gamers to use the Wii system and also offer a simple introductory line for both gamers and non-Gamers to interact together in a fun way. The games use the motion sensor capabilities of a Wii Remote and Nunchuk attachment to control the actions of the on-screen ball. The Wii Sports is the first Wii title to use this feature, and it is also the first game to feature non-player characters in the game.
