Wii Sports Club could see retail release

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says company has not ruled out the possibility of upcoming HD overhaul seeing packaged release.

Wii Sports Club, the upcoming high-definition update of the original Wii Sports, could see a retail release some day, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said.

"I do not deny the possibility that Wii Sports Club may become packaged software in the future," Iwata said during a recent investor Q&A.

Iwata made clear, however, that Nintendo's focus right now is releasing tennis and bowling for Wii U through the eShop beginning tomorrow, November 7. Boxing, baseball, and golf will be released "in the months ahead."

Those who download Wii Sports Club will be given a trial pass that allows them to play any available game for a 24-hour period. After this period ends, players can either purchase a Day Pass for $2 to play all available sports for a 24-hour period, or buy permanent access to individual sports for $10 each.

Nintendo also today released a new trailer for Wii Sports Club (below), featuring famous former professional tennis players Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf.

Disc version should be Wii Sport + Resort Club. Provide a more complete package, Nintendo.

It could also just be automatically installed onto the Wii U it comes with, or a download code. I doubt it would be a physical copy.

This is a given that a retail release will eventually be coming in 18 months 2 years time.
