    A game somewhat akin to the Wii Sports Resort is coming to a Nintendo Switch near your this summer!

    From sky diving and beach volleyball to tennis and even snowball fights, Kawawii island offers something for everyone, with more than 50 different games and activities to enjoy.

    Created by BANDAI NAMCO, GO VACATION includes a variety of cooperative and competitive games that can be played solo or with up to four players – via a single Nintendo Switch console or local wireless connection. Several activities offer the option to use motion controls, making swinging your tennis racket and throwing snowballs even more fun and immersive.

    While exploring – either on foot, on horseback, on a snowmobile and more – you’ll discover numerous collectibles, challenges and other opportunities to level up and customise your character. Decorate your own villa, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the food trucks, and snap in-game photos of the dozens of adorable animals hiding in each resort. Regular challenges and presents, like special costumes and different dog breeds, will keep players coming back for hours of Kawawii island adventures.

    GO VACATION arrives on the Nintendo Switch this July 27th.

    I really hope this one puts the Mii maker on the Switch to good use! Seriously, did it have any use other than setting them as profile pictures? Also, kawaii island.

    This game. I've loved it in the Wii era, it was very funny.
    It was everything that was missing from Wii Sport Resort

    It's actually kawawii, because the game was originally a Wii game, so it's a pun between Kawaii and Wii

    Now that I think of it I hope this remake/port lets us disable motion controls, they were... ok on Wii but I'd rather not drive my waterskii and quad with motion controls again

    If there was a time counter on the Wii, probably I would've reached 400 hours or more

    I never really minded the controls. I don't care if it's motion or normal, I'm just going insane that this game is coming back and I can play it on the go. It's a true dream come true...
