European Wii fans will not have to wait long to experience this MotionPlus-enhanced game.

Wii Motion: Plus has been given an European release date of June 24, 2011.

The game is the sequel to Wii Play, which was originally released in 2007 and included a Wii Remote. Wii Play: Motion uses MotionPlus for its 12 mini-games, many of them created by developers outside of Nintendo. While a Japanese and North American release date was known, a release date for Europe wasn't announced until now.

European players will receive a red Wii Remote Plus controller with their copy of the game.

Put Some Motion in your Play Time!

Wii Play: Motion  - the successor to the multi million selling Wii Play launches across Europe on 24th June 2011 exclusively packacged with a red Wii Remote Plus.

28th April 2011: If you are looking to have some instant fun on Wii which is immediately accessible to all, then look no further as Wii Play: Motion - a collection of 12 innovative, fun mini-games that specifically show off the special capabilities of the Wii Remote Plus* makes its European debut on 24th June 2011 exclusively on Wii.

Wii Play: Motion is the successor to the popular Wii Play, which has sold over 9 million copies in Europe. It will have you and your friends twisting and turning as it comes packaged exclusively with a special red Wii Remote Plus controller. Wii Remote Plus combines the original Wii Remote controller with the precision of the Wii MotionPlus accessory – to deliver great value, precise motion control and immersive social fun that anyone in the household can pick up and instantly enjoy.

Your personalised Mii character can be used in each of the mini-games and it may find itself in a variety of unexpected yet interesting settings. In the mini-game Wind Runner your Mii character will be sporting a pair of roller skates and carrying an umbrella. Use your Wii Remote Plus to open the umbrella which will in turn carry your Mii character along a race course. By strategically angling your Wii Remote Plus your Mii character can change direction, jump and increase speed as it makes its way to the end of the course whilst dodging obstacles in its path. 

As you make your way through the 12 mini-games which have multiple game modes for added depth to gameplay, see every swing, tilt, hit and spin of your Wii Remote Plus come to life as it becomes faithfully replicated on your TV screen with exacting precision. From Treasure Twirl - where the Wii Remote Plus acts as a “winch” to collect deep-sea treasure, to Cone Zone – where you tilt the Wii Remote Plus in the correct position to balance ice cream within a giant waffle cone and stop it from falling, whilst extra scoops are being added –- there’s a minigame for everyone to enjoy.

Each of the 12 mini-games included can be played in single player mode, yet if you fancy a different experience and want to get your friends and family involved, then the multiple game modes of a selection of Wii Play: Motion mini-games allow for up to 3 other people to join in on the fun, ensuring your game play experience is always a truly unique one.  For example in the mini-game Skip Skimmer where you can skip stones along a lake, there is a Score Mode in which up to four players take it in turn to skip stones through a series of rings with the aim of getting to the target at the end. By strategically angling the Wii Remote Plus you can compete against your friends to get the highest score in order to win the game.

If you and your friends fancy becoming ghost hunters then Spooky Search will see you working with up to three of your friends to apprehend and collect wayward spirits that have escaped through your TV screen - and into your living room. Using the speaker on the Wii Remote Plus, you are up against the clock to try and locate the ghosts. By pointing your Wii Remote Plus off screen and anywhere around your living room – whether that be above or behind you, your goal is to snare as many ghosts as you can and ‘drag’ them one by one back into your TV screen.

See the exacting motion control of the Wii Remote Plus come to life when Wii Play: Motion launches across Europe on 24th June 2011.

Some of the game description sound good.  I rather have a red Wiimote Plus instead of a black one hear in the states.

If the US version came with any colour of Wiimote besides white or black (I have two of each) then I'd be tempted to get it instead of waiting for a cheap used game. Since FlingSmash has a black one in it, it doesn't make much sense that this game has the same colour.

Y'see, I'm the oposite: I've recently replaced my launch Wii, with its dying disc drive, with a shiny, sexay black one. It came with a black WR+ and I really, really don't want a red one complementing it. Methinks us Aussies will be thrown in with the European stuffs as always. Most unfortunately. Most.

A red Motion Plus? Sexy. Yeah, I'll pick this up. Nintendo should offer up a gold Motion Plus with Skyward Sword.
