DevTextIcon.png This game has hidden development-related text.
GraphicsIcon.png This game has unused graphics.
DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.
RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

Share your Miis with the world! Enter contests!...well, not anymore. But at the time, it was pretty fun. If you didn't mind losing to several hundred cut-and-pasted Miis that looked exactly the same, that is. It is possible to restore some functionality by installing the RiiConnect24 Homebrew mod.

To do:
  • Build dates of the other versions.
  • An internal documents in the a Wii Sports Resort folder in the 2020-09-20 Nintendo leaks.


English Translation Differences
There's a LOT of text differences.

Unused Models

content4\PickUp\G3D\sample.brres.szs, also present within 00000004.app, has a model of a human, as well as its textures from the NintendoWare SDK. There are 3 animations for it; one for jumping, running, and walking.

In the same file, there's also a path to a pre-built NAND release version of a test of the Virtual Console Manual Viewer on someone's computer.


Debugging Functions

Build Display


Oddly not stubbed out in release builds of the channel is a hidden display for the product build date and version that can be enabled using the following button combination on the Wii Remote held vertically while in the main menu: A, B, Down (D-Pad), 1, 2, Up (D-Pad), -, +, - and +. It outputs data in this format:


YYYY is the year, MM is the month, DD is the day, R is the region, T is the type and V is the version. For example, UF is US Final.
