Wii Sports Resort is a game released in 2009 for the Wii as the successor to Wii Sports, being the second games in the Wii Sports series. The game comes bundled with the Wii MotionPlus accessory which is required to play the game. It was later bundled in new Wii consoles alongside Wii Sports on a single disc called Wii Sports + Wii Sports Resort.


Wii Sports Resort consists of multiple different modes, with the twelve main modes being Wakeboarding, Frisbee, Archery, Basketball, Table Tennis, Golf, Bowling, Power Cruising, Canoeing, Cycling, Air Sports and Swordplay. All modes use the Wii Motion Plus Attachment and Archery, Power Cruising, and Cycling use the nunchuck attachment. Just like the original Wii Sports, the player uses the controller to perform motions similar to those in real-life sports, such as using the remote as a golf club or a bowling ball. The rules and mechanics of the games are simplified to be easier for first-time players, as well as younger players.

Miis are awarded skill points from winning games, but they lose points from coming in last place, or sometimes 2nd or 3rd place as well. The amount of points won or lost depends on various factors such as the skill of the other players, the difficulty of the game, and the amount of skill the player already has. If the player possesses a large enough amount of skill more than the other players, no skill will be awarded when winning. Miis have separate amounts of skill for each of the Twelve games. Skill is attributed to a Mii, however, skill is not transferred when a Mii is imported to another console.

If there is an insufficient amount of players in Table Tennis, Canoeing, or Swordplay, one of 60 CPU players will be used. Each CPU player has a unique but unchanging skill level. Players are matched with CPU players of a similar skill level. Once the player's skill level goes up, new CPU players with a higher skill will be played against. Wakeboarding, Frisbee, Archery, Golf, Bowling, Power Cruising, and certain Air Sports modes can be played alone, as in real-life, with the object of the game then being to obtain a new personal best.

Wii Sports Club is a remake of Wii Sports and a sequel to Wii Sports Resort where all five of the original's sports use the Wii MotionPlus accessory.

  • Wii Sports Resort was the first first-party game to require the Wii MotionPlus accessory.
  • The Japanese boxart of Wii Sports Resort have 3 minors details that were removed on the European cover:
    • A car was present on the left of the cover, which was probably removed to prevent false advertising on a possible racing game being in the game (the boat behind the car was also pushed a bit toward the left on the European cover).
    • A single Air Ballon was next to Maka Wuhu on the left, which was removed for unknown reason as other Air Ballons are still on the cover.
    • A Mii was looking in the distance on the right side of the cover, this detail also being removed for an unknown reason.
