Why we should love Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort
By SURETYKENG YEUNG/Reuters A new version of Nintendo’s wildly popular Wii Sports app is now available to download from the Nintendo eShop, a major milestone in the company’s virtual-reality (VR) entertainment.
The Wii Sports App is available for iPhone and Android devices, including Android phones, as well as for Samsung smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and smart TVs.
The app is available as a free download on the iPhone and iPad app stores and can be downloaded on the Samsung and other mobile platforms.
Wii Sports Resort was launched last November and was aimed at introducing virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) to young people.
It was a partnership between Nintendo, Facebook, Google, Oculus VR, and Sony.
Nintendo previously released the Wii Sports VR app in 2014, but the app was removed from the iOS app store in March of this year.
Nintendo says that the Wii Sport app has a 30-day free trial and then a 90-day subscription to the service.
The app will be fully accessible for everyone on April 1.
Wired reported that the app is still available for free on iOS devices, although it has been removed from Google Play.
Wizards of the Coast, maker of Dungeons & Dragons: Ultimate Equipment, also recently released a free, limited version of the app.
