Wii Sports[a] is a 2006 sports simulation video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console. The 1.0 (pre-release) version of the game was released in North America along with the Wii on November 19, 2006, and the 1.1 version was released in Japan, Australia, Europe, and North America over the following months. It was included as a pack-in game with the console in all territories except Japan, making it the first sports game included with the launch of a Nintendo system since Mario's Tennis for the Virtual Boy in 1995. The game is available on its own as part of the Nintendo Selects collection of games.

Wii Sports is a collection of five sports simulations, which have been designed to demonstrate the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote. The five sports included are tennis, baseball, bowling, golf and boxing. Players use the Wii Remote to mimic actions performed in real-life sports, such as swinging a tennis racket.[1] The rules for each game are simplified to make them more accessible to new players. The game also features training and fitness modes that monitor players' progress in the sports.[2]

Before the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Media and Business Summit of 2006, the first sport in the game was announced as Wii Sports: Tennis. It was later announced, at Nintendo's press conference prior to E3 2006, it would be part of a sports package.[20] Satoru Iwata introduced this package as Wii Sports, and stated it would include tennis, golf, and baseball. The game was featured as both a video demonstration and an on-stage playable demo. The demo featured Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime in a doubles tennis match against Shigeru Miyamoto and Scott Dyer, a contest winner.[16] The other sports titles were on display at E3 and shared a similar naming convention to the tennis game such as, Wii Sports: Baseball, Wii Sports: Golf, and Wii Sports: Airplane.[22] At the time, baseball only featured a batting simulation.[23] The airplane title was similar to Pilotwings and required the player to maneuver an airplane through rings within a time frame.[22] It was not included in the final game, but was later incorporated into Wii Sports Resort.[24] At the Nintendo World event on September 14, 2006, Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed the game's five playable sports and announced that Wii Sports would be included free with every Wii console,[25] although Miyamoto initially objected to doing so strongly on the grounds that Nintendo does not usually give away well-made games for free and suggested Wii Play instead, which Fils-Aime did not believe would provide a complete entry-level experience for the system.[26]

Wii Sports received "generally favorable" reviews from critics, according to review aggregator Metacritic.[27] GameTrailers called it a good complement to the Wii console and referred to all five games as a "nice total package". They commented that the games provided enough gameplay for long time gamers without making it inaccessible to novices. GameTrailers stated, however, that the lack of a tournament mode was a detractor, and did not recommend paying for the game if it did not come bundled with the system.[11] GamePro also commented that the free addition of the game with the Wii was a positive.[1] Matt Casamassina of IGN called it a "successful showpiece for Nintendo's new hardware" and enjoyed the ability to import Miis.[10] GameSpot editor Ryan Davis complimented the multiplayer aspect and the fitness test.[48] Reviewers praised the game's controls and ease of use. Casamassina referred to the controls as "revolutionary" and described them as intuitive.[10] GamePro echoed similar comments, praising the ease of play and realistic motion controls, while Davis commented that the motion controls were sometimes erratic.[1][48] Common criticism focused on the graphics and lack of depth in the separate games. Casamassina stated that the game "comes up short in depth and visuals", and called the graphics "generic" and "archaic".[10] Other reviewers said the graphics were on par with Nintendo's older gaming systems, the GameCube and Nintendo 64.[1][11] Davis criticized the oversimplified nature of the games, and GamePro stated that the separate games offered less depth than regular console sports games.[1][48] Nintendo Power listed Wii Sports along with its sequel, Wii Sports Resort, as two of the greatest multiplayer experiences in Nintendo's history, stating that everyone from young children to grandparents can enjoy the games. The magazine praised the grouping of sports and the game's longevity.[49] In 2009, Official Nintendo Magazine said the game was "Responsible for the biggest turn-around the console wars has ever seen", placing it 21st on a list of the greatest Nintendo games.[50] In 2019, the game was ranked 28th on The Guardian newspaper's The 50 Best Video Games of the 21st Century list.[51]

The separate games garnered their own reception among critics. Casamassina called bowling, tennis, and baseball "fun and addictive", while Tom Bramwell of Eurogamer said baseball, golf, and boxing were lacking in gameplay depth when compared to tennis and bowling.[10][33] PC Magazine columnist John C. Dvorak, an avid bowler, praised the realistic physics used in bowling and stated, "Nintendo did a stupendous job of coding." He complimented the addition of physical activity to video gaming but complained that long-term use caused his wrist and shoulder to become sore.[52] Casamassina ranked bowling as the best experience of the five.[10] Before its release, IGN's Craig Harris commented on an exploit allowing easy strikes in the bowling game that removed the challenge and replays value.[53] After the release, he stated that the exploit was not fixed.[25] GameTrailers called golf the most in-depth, but criticized the lack of multiple courses and unpredictable controls when trying to slice or hook a shot.[11] GamePro said golf offered the most content and was the best looking of every game, but commented that its controls were the most difficult to use.[1] GameTrailers called tennis the most accessible and easy to play, but criticized the difficulty of putting spin on a shot.[11] Casamassina stated that tennis was one of the more enjoyable games, but the lack of movement control was a detractor.[10] GameTrailers called baseball the most "worthless" because of the luck factor associated with the computer-controlled fielding. They called boxing the best workout on Wii Sports, but criticized the difficult timing needed to punch properly.[11] Casamassina criticized boxing for being "like a chore" and ranked it as the worst experience of the five sports.[10]

Wii Sports has been featured on television multiple times. It was seen in commercials for the Wii console,[4][103] and in news features on ABC and NBC.[5][104][105] The game has appeared on various comedy shows. An episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien featured host Conan O'Brien competing against his guest, tennis star Serena Williams, in a match of Wii Sports tennis.[6] On an episode of the Rick Mercer Report, former Canadian prime minister Jean Chrétien beat Rick Mercer in a game of Wii Sports boxing.[7] The boxing game also appeared on an episode of The Colbert Report where a clip featured Mii versions of Stephen Colbert and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boxing.[106] At the 80th Academy Awards Show, host Jon Stewart and Jamia Simone Nash were caught playing Wii Sports tennis on one of the event's gigantic projection screens after a commercial break as part of a joke.[107] Wii Sports has also been featured in mainstream movies such as Tropic Thunder, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel and in commercials for products such as Kellogg's Smart Start.[108]

A sequel, Wii Sports Resort, was first revealed at Nintendo's E3 2008 presentation.[109] Development moved forward after the extent of the Wii MotionPlus was realized, though the idea for a sequel existed sooner.[110] The game features 12 sports, (2 from the original) including swordplay, wakeboarding, Frisbee, archery, basketball, table tennis, golf, bowling, power cruising, canoeing, cycling, and air sports (parachuting and piloting).[111] The game was first released in South Korea on June 24, 2009[112] and in Japan on June 25, 2009[113] before releasing in other markets in July 2009. As of March 2020, the game has sold over 30 million units, and is a fan-favorite for kids all across the globe.[114][115][116]

On February 9, 2022, during a Nintendo Direct presentation, it was announced that a sequel titled Nintendo Switch Sports would be released for the Nintendo Switch on April 29, 2022. It features some of the sports from Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort such as Bowling, Tennis, and Chambara (a type of Swordplay) with some new additions like soccer, volleyball, and badminton.[124]
