Nintendo's bringing on the heat as they set the date for the release of their two latest projects - the advanced motion-sensing Wii MotionPlus, and Wii Sports Resort, a title that's expected to demonstrate the power of Nintendo's new controller.
Wii MotionPlus is supposed to be able to track players' movements in much finer detail and greater accuracy than what we've already seen with the WiiMote. Even the slightest twist of the wrist or turn of the body is replicated exactly on the screen, says Nintendo. This new accessory comes with a US 19.99 price tag, and will be on US retailers by June 8th, 2009.
To follow the new accessory is Wii Sports Resort, the game that's expected to showcase the power of Wii MotionPlus with an all-new set of "entertaining and physically immersive activities" which include riding water scooters, swordfights, and throwing Frisbees. Wii Sports Resort will be bundled with Wii MotionPlus at US 49.99, and will be available on July 26th.
