Nintendo Offers Free Trial Of Wii Sports ClubBy: Zach Walton - March 14, 2014
Last year, Nintendo tried its hand at free trials with a month long Wii Fit U trial that gave players the opportunity to download the title and try it for free. Now it’s starting a similar promotion for its other fitness focused title.
Nintendo announced this morning that Wii Sports Club will be free to download starting March 21 at 12 p.m. EST and will last until March 24 at 2:59 a.m. EST. The free trial will encompass all three games currently available in Wii Sports Club – Golf, Bowling and Tennis.
To make this deal a little sweeter, Nintendo will be adding a new golf course to the game. The Resort Course from Wii Sports Resort will be a free addition that weekend so those trying out the game will get to play some new content right from the get go.
During the free trial, players won’t have any limitations put on them. They can try out all the modes available as well as play online. In fact, Nintendo stresses the online play as one of the defining features of Wii Sports Club.
Another defining feature of Wii Sports Club is its sort-of free-to-play model. For $1.99 per sport, players can buy access to a sport for one day. If they want to unlock that sport forever, they just need to pay $9.99.
Oh, and those who have already downloaded Wii Sports Resort will be happy to know that the promotion applies to them as well. If you’re still on the fence, Nintendo hopes the free trial will push you over.
