Kotaku reports that the game will be released in Japan in June. Since the MotionPlus Wii Remote add-on is essential for playing the game, it will be released around that time as well. The game (and add-on) will be released in “other markets” - including the U.S. - in July.
During an address to The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata announced the release dates. Wii Sports has proven so popular that many other publishers have created knock-off multi-game packs. More complete release information will come later.
MotionPlus was first announced last July. The add-on snaps onto the Wii Remote and provides an even finer level of motion control.
So not long to wait then. Thoughts?
