WPM Wind1 620x358 Nintendo Releases Wii Play: Motion

Are you looking to pick up a Wii Motion Plus controller?  Do your kids like mini-game collections?  If so, Nintendo’s new Wii Play: Motion package could be exactly what you’re looking for!

Building on the immersive, family-friendly action of the original Wii Play – one of the top-selling video games of all time – Wii Play: Motion comes packaged with a black Wii Remote Plus controller, which features the built-in precise motion control of the Wii MotionPlus accessory. Wii Play: Motion is offered at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

The 12 included games in Wii Play: Motion ask players to wield the Wii Remote Plus (or Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus accessory, sold separately) in a multitude of interesting ways. In Wind Runner, players tilt the controller to change the angle of an umbrella as they ride gusts of wind along a gem-filled race course. In Veggie Guardin’, they swing the controller like a mallet to ward off pests that threaten to steal vegetables from their garden. Spooky Search brings the action off the screen and into the living room by challenging players to track invisible spirits by pointing the controller around the room and listening for clues. In Teeter Targets, players carefully flip a ball into targets by tilting the controller like a seesaw.

The Wii Remote Plus normally retails for $39.99 on its own, making Wii Play: Motion a reasonably cost-effective way to pick up a fully-featured controller for a game like Zelda: Skyward Sword along with a handful of mini-games for the family.  The bundle is on store shelves now.
