    Sure it's not one of your friends Mii's? Doesn't the first Wii Sports put random friends in as opponents/spectators? At least that was the case when I owned a Wii...

    I think you should post this on that site, which is collecting spottings of Michael [​IMG]

    But you are right: the nose and the glasses are enough indication: this is Michael! [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    No, the opponents are always not from the mii-channels. Just the spectators [​IMG]

    I would say it's far more likely he is a mii from your mii channel. Wii sports did use your miis for some of the games like baseball.

    Also the game was released on the 25th of June in Japan. No way they could have added him in on time.

    I think on One-on-One game they didn`t use Miis from the Mii-Channel. At least that is what I experienced from playing WSResort (Swordfight 1300 and Ping-Pong 1100 at the moment so I played both for a while!).

    Wasn`t the original WiiSports only using the Miis in your own team?! I think the opponents where alway not from the Mii-channel!? I don`t know [​IMG]

    Still nice find [​IMG]

    Coincidence. Nintendo always have some crazy looking Miis going on.

    It is most likely a random generated Mii character that is placed in the crowd using any of the random options from the Mii creation.

    That's pretty freaky. Though it's slightly interesting, so I might try out that game in the future.

    lol you idiots
    of course it's not an homage to MJ.
    Nintendo would have created a better likeness if it was, there would be homages to other famous people, and the game went gold well before MJ died.

    I'd be far more likely to believe it if it were the US one, but this is the Japanese version we're talking about. lol
