New Wii Bundle announced with Wii Sports, Wii Party and newly configured Wii


17/08/2011

August 17th, 2011 – As the summer draws to a close and Christmas starts to glimmer around the corner, get ready to have some fun and games with your friends and family. From October you will be able to pick up a new value Wii bundle, which includes a newly configured Wii console with Wii Sports and Wii Party – a perfect family present this Christmas.

With more than 80 fun and hilarious mini-games, Wii Party will bring a lively atmosphere into any living room. Play with up to four Wii Remote controllers and enjoy putting your very own personalised Mii character at the heart of the action like never before. Compete or co-operate in 13 different game modes and, for the first time, take the action out of the television screen as the House Party mode turns your living room into a pivotal part of the game play. For example, search under the sofa or behind the bookcase for the hidden Wii Remote controllers in the Hide ‘n’ Hunt game or be careful not to be the last player holding the Wii Remote in Time Bomb. Wii Party also includes Pair Games and Party Games modes - both of which keep the varied challenges coming thick and fast as you play with fellow friends and family.

Also included in this great value bundle is the original Wii classic, Wii Sports, offering five distinct sports experiences which make use of the motion controls enabled by the Wii Remote. Swing the controller like a racket in Tennis, and grip it like a bat for swatting fastballs out of the park in Baseball. In Golf, you'll tee up and hold the controller like a golf club and swing naturally to guide the ball onto the green. While in Bowling, raise the Wii Remote and swing your arm to roll the ball, and in Boxing use the Nunchuk controller as one glove and the Wii Remote as the other to dodge, weave and punch your opponents.

This new Wii bundle not only offers great value to European fans, but introduces a streamlined Wii console with a slightly altered configuration, which is designed to sit horizontally, rather than vertically.

The new Wii bundle launches across Europe in October 2011 and includes the newly configured Wii console in white, a Wii Remote Plus controller, Nunchuk, and copies of Wii Sports and Wii Party. A number of other Wii bundles will be announced this autumn, all offering great value. Watch this space!
