Wii Sports Resort (Wii スポーツ リゾート, Uī Supōtsu Rizōto?) is a sports video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console, and is the successor to Wii Sports. It is one of the first titles to require the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is bundled with the game. Wii Sports Resort was first announced at E3 2008 and was released in Japan on June 25, 2009 and in nearly all other regions in the following month. While the game was originally released only as a stand-alone title, as of 2009 the game is bundled with newer Wii consoles, along with Wii Sports.
Wii Sports Resort is a simple collection of twelve sports games, which includes enhanced games from Wii Sports along with completely new selections, designed to take advantage of the motion sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. Like Wii Sports, players mimic the actions performed in real life sports, but are controlled with greater accuracy due to the precision capabilities of the Wii MotionPlus in order to provide a more immersive experience.
The game was well received by game critics, gaining an aggregate score of 82.94% on GameRankings and 80% on Metacritic. As of March 2012, the game is the third best-selling game on the Wii, after its predecessor Wii Sports and Mario Kart Wii, with 30.14 million copies sold worldwide.
