With 100 million copies sold worldwide, the Wii is one of the most popular gaming consoles ever.

The successor to Wii is called Wii U. Please note that Wii's online services have now been discontinued, so it is no longer possible to play Wii games online or use other online services such as Wii Shop Channel.

Launched in 2006, the Wii differs significantly from traditional video games in that the Wii Remote is motion sensitive. This means that you play by making different movements while holding the controller. For example, if you play tennis, swing the Wii Remote like a racket and shoot monsters, aiming directly at the screen with the built-in IR function. Wii Remote has very few buttons, which means that beginners do not have to learn where everything is, but can just throw themselves into the games and have fun!

Wii Remote Plus is a development of the Wii Remote that reads your movements with even better precision. The vast majority of Wii games do not require Wii Remote Plus, but some games utilize refined precision and others take advantage of it without requiring the technology.

Note that a standard Wii Remote with the Wii MotionPlus accessory connected has exactly the same technology as the Wii Remote Plus. In addition, you can of course play all Wii games with Wii Remote Plus, even if they do not use the extra technology.

Huge line-up of games

There are more than a thousand games for the Wii, from exclusive titles like Super Mario Galaxy and Pokémon Battle Revolution to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and PES 2009: Pro Evolution Soccer. In addition, there are hundreds of other titles to download online, games that are not available in physical stores! The huge range covers both children, family and gamer. lt's updated around the clock without you having to lift a finger. When Nintendo has sent out a new upgrade or when you have received a message from a friend, the disc tray lights up blue, which means you never have to turn on the console and go in and see if anything new has happened - you see immediately when something has arrived!

Nintendo Co., Ltd., headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, has created franchises that have become household names worldwide, including Mario™, Donkey Kong™, The Legend of Zelda™, Metroid™, Pokémon™, Animal Crossing™, Pikmin™ and Splatoon™, through its integrated hardware and software products.
