Fitness fans rejoice! In addition to the new details about Wii Fit U revealed by Nintendo today, there was also another announcement: Wii Sports Club for Wii U.

Wii Sports Club isn’t exactly a new game, but an enhanced remake of the wildly successful Wii Sports from 2006. This version will have full HD graphics, and will support Motion Plus– bringing the original sports to a new level of control. Wii Sports Club will also feature online play, so you can play against players all over the world. True to the “Club” name, the game will also support the ability to play online matches in clubs based on your geographic location. Miiverse support is also included, of course.

Nintendo is charting new territory with Wii Sports Club by introducing a different kind of content delivery. Wii Sports Club will be a free download on the Wii U eShop, but it will cost money to unlock each sport. To completely unlock one sport costs $9.99, but you can also purchase a pass to unlock every sport for 24 hours for $1.99. Players will get a free trial version of all the sports when they first play the game. No other versions of the game, such as a full retail version, were mentioned.

Wii Sports Club will be available for download on the Wii U eShop starting November 7, with only Tennis and Bowling available.

    Wow, what an awesome surprise! Take my money, Nintendo. You’ve earned it.

    Wii Sports is still one of the crown jewels of the previous console generation, and probably one of my favorite games to experience with friends.

    The ability to pick and choose games is nice, too. I’ll likely be skipping Baseball and possibly Golf. All in for Tennis, Boxing and Bowling, though!
