DevTextIcon.png This game has hidden development-related text.

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.

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
