Wuhu Island, originally known as the Wii Fit Island, is a location which first appeared in Wii Fit, and has since been featured in several Nintendo games. Not all games in which the island appears have been Mii-focused, but all have had playable Miis. Its most notable appearance is as the setting of Wii Sports Resort, in which the island could be explored while doing Air Sports.

Appearances

Wii series

Wuhu Island first appeared in Wii Fit and has since appeared in multiple Wii series games, most notably Wii Sports Resort, and the two follow-ups to Wii Fit : Wii Fit Plus, and Wii Fit U.

Wuhu Island first appeared in Wii Fit in multiple mini-games, then being called Wii Fit Island.

Pilotwings Resort

Pilotwings Resort takes place on Wuhu Island and Wedge Island, with all activities taking place on one of the two.

Mario Kart series

Wuhu Island has appeared so far in two games from the Mario Kart series, Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with two race tracks called Wuhu Loop and Maka Wuhu and a battle stage called Wuhu Town taking place on the island. Oddly enough, Wuhu Loop and Maka Wuhu are the only two race tracks from Mario Kart 7 that never got ported to Mario Kart Tour.

Mario Kart 7

In Mario Kart 7, Wuhu Island appears as the setting of the Wuhu Loop and Maka Wuhu races tracks. In addition, a battle stage called Wuhu Town also appears in the multiplayer mode of the game.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The Wuhu Town battle stage reappears in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, in which Wuhu Island has been redesigned, having better graphics as well as taking place at daytime compared to Mario Kart 7. As opposed to Mario Kart 7 who used a generic Battle Mode theme for all of its stages, Wuhu Town now has an new arrangement of the Wii Sports Resort main theme that as the two race tracks Wuhu Loop and Maka Wuhu previously used.

Super Smash Bros. series

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Two stages in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U take place on Wuhu Island, being Wuhu Island and Pilotwings. In the former, the stage flies over the island and will occasionally stop in different places similar to other traveling stages such as Delfino Plaza. In the latter, the Pilotwings stage is set on a red biplane that flies around the island, periodically swapping to a yellow plane with a different layout and back. The path of the plane's travel is different from the Wuhu Island stage. The Omega form of both of these stages are set on a floating platform that travels in a different path than the original.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Wuhu Island and Pilotwings stages both return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Notably, the Omega version of the Wuhu Island stage is now set on the Swordplay Colosseum alongside the newly added Battlefield form.
