Nintendo chooses Gozo for European launch of ‘Wii Sports Resort’

Karl Stagno-Navarra

World renowned games-console producers, Nintendo, chose the idyllic sister island of Gozo to launch their brand new game for the Wii console across Europe last Friday.
The new game, ‘Wii Sports Resort’ offers a bundle of fun sports, including power cruising, wakeboarding, canoeing, seaplane ride, table tennis, basketball, cycling, frisbee, archery and swordplay.
The game is graphically set on a tropical island in a ‘holiday atmosphere’, which players can enjoy without leaving home.
Journalists from the Benelux and Portugal were flown to Malta and Gozo to experience the array of sports and activities featured in the new Wii Sports Resort set last weekend in Gozo.
The media contingent spent their days on the sister island: jetskiing, canoing, frisbeeing, taking a seaplane and even experiencing a sword-fight demonstration in period costumes, among others. Partnering Nintendo in this initiative were the Malta Tourism Authority, Air Malta and the Hotel Kempinski San Lawrenz in Gozo.
