Wii Legacy

One of the major milestones in the gaming world occurred 16 years ago with the release of the Nintendo Wii console and its Wii Sports game. The title served as a kind of demonstration of the features of the Wii Remote, an accessory that allows you to move your whole body to play and won over many fans.

The launch of Wii Sports Resort in 2009 attracted more people with new models and improved controls. The popularity of the titles was so great that it was not uncommon to find large groups of people taking turns controlling when playing close matches in bowling, archery, golf, table tennis and more.

The Nintendo Wii was officially discontinued in 2013. After several attempts to replicate its successful formula, the company brought the Switch console experience this year to fulfill that legacy with the Nintendo Switch Sports.
