The five games in the original Wii Sports are headed to the Nintendo eShop for Wii U as individual downloads under the collective title Wii Sports Club, Nintendo have announced.


Tennis, Bowling, Golf, Boxing and Baseball will all be released on the eShop with upgraded HD graphics, improved motion controls that make use of Wii MotionPlus, and also an online multiplayer versus mode.


Players, Nintendo say, will be registered to state ore regional clubs on Miiverse and will be able to chat with one another using the social network during matches. You’ll be able to play against rival club members to increase your club ranking.


The first two games to be released will be Tennis and Bowling, both of which will be released on November 7th. Boxing, Baseball and Golf will follow in the months ahead.


If you download Wii Sports Club, you’ll get a trial pass to play the available games for 24 hours. Once this period ends, you can purchase a Day Pass for $1.99 or buy the games permanently for $9.99 each, depending on your taste.

  • Tennis and Bowling, aka the only ones my family and I usually played.

    Needless to say, I’m not complaining.

  • Armane

    $50 for Wii Sports HD? No thanks. Although if Bowling is ever half off, I might be tempted.

  • linkenski

    Holy shit, I’m buying a Wii U!

  • Luis Camargo

    Can’t wait for the inevitable online tournaments of Wii Sports.

    Free pack-in on Wii, $50 for updated versions on WiiU. And no Resort games. Booo.

  • idrawrobots

    I am excited at the possibilities of more sports too. If Wii Sports Club is just a hub for other downloads, they could keep adding to it.

    These are going to sell like nobody’s business. Casual, core, Kaiser Soze…everyone will have these games. And you can start leagues…here’s your sales catalyst right here.

    You can expect Resort eventually now I guess. I wouldn’t mind buying this. If anything, at least bowling, since I remember playing this a lot.

  • Snareface

    Wii Sports… eSports… WeSports? Right? Right? EVO 2014.

  • I used to play this a lot even if it didn’t had online features, I can’t imagine how anti-social I’ll become now.
