Nintendo's sequel to Wii Sports arrives this July, bearing new Wii Remote waggling fun, this time with the added precision of Wii MotionPlus. Wii Sports Resort will usher in fresh mini-games, including two new additions.
Nintendo of Japan has confirmed, via new commercials for the Wii MotionPlus peripheral, that Wii Sports Resort will include... table tennis and golf! Yes, golf. Yes, that was in the original Wii Sports, but we'll presume that Nintendo will add something new to the mini-game beyond the addition of one-to-one motion control.
And table tennis? We've seen that before, in Wii Play—albeit with disembodied hands, not vacationing Miis.
Hey, when you're already stretching the definition of sports with plastic swordfighting and Frisbee fetch, you've gotta make some concessions. Even if the market is already going to be crowded with ping pong and putting alternatives.
