ESPN Sports Connection - Wii U

Interactive multiplayer in your favorite sports

Just like the classic Wii Sports, Ubisoft’s ESPN Sports Connection offers players a simple yet engaging way for up to 5 friends to enjoy six of their favorite sports:

  • Golf
  • Football
  • Baseball
  • Tennis
  • Soccer
  • Karting


Challenge your friends to a race around the track in your go-karts. Four players with Wii Remotes can share the television while the fifth player, using the Wii U’s GamePad, breaks for the finish on the built-in screen. The GamePad also offers the player a new, exciting way to experience sports like football, baseball and golf. Use the GamePad’s touch screen to call the perfect play to sack the quarterback, swipe the screen towards home plate to unleash a fastball, or get an eagle’s view of the golf course as a helpful caddy.

Join up with family and friends to connect, form teams, and share scores on a worldwide leaderboard. And with fun mini-games like the Serving Machine Challenge in tennis, Sports Connection delivers plenty of content for everybody.


Features

  • Batter Up: Enjoy your favorite sports on the Wii U, including football, baseball, tennis, soccer, karting and golf.
  • More Racers, More Fun: Using four Wii Remotes and one GamePad, up to five 5 friends can compete together.
  • Enhance Your Play: The GamePad offers a new perspective to sports games. Your built-in screen gives you a view of the batter from the pitcher’s eyes, while your friend (holding a Wii Remote like a baseball bat) is watching the television from the batter’s viewpoint.
  • Play On: There are plenty of mini-games and challenges to expand your gameplay experience.

Required Wii Remote Plus or Wii Remote with MotionPlus Attachment. Compatible with Wii U Console. Not compatible with original Wii console.

Kids are having a great time November 29, 2012
Reviewer: Blanch Johns  
I bought it for my kids after checking its enthusiastic review on FamilyFriendlyGaming.com even if I was bit skeptical at the beginning.
In the end it's true that my kids and their friends are having great time: they organized a big tournament among them, playing in teams and mixing them for each sports. Sometimes they complain because they don't understand everything or because something weird happens.
But they are laughing a lot and they would never stop playing together... and that's the most important thing to me!

Fun November 28, 2012
Reviewer: lanau matao  
My initial experience was bad because I had issues with the calibration of the Motion Plus, but after installing the patch things got smoother.
Also, be careful to use a Wiimote with Motion Plus because it's required but the game does not prevent you to play without it... but you can't really play: it happened to me it took me a while to realize what the problem was! Once I overcame this initial problems I was finally able to play. And it deserved the wait: there are interesting ideas for the Gamepad usage, all the sports are fun (especially in multiplayer), but don't expect a perfect game (some visual glitches, long loading time). Baseball and Soccer are my favorite sports. Tennis Cannonball is also a blast. There's a huge amount of fun achievements to unlock: I already unlocked more than 100 and I'm not sure I reached half of them! My feeling is that the game has been rushed a bit to hit the launch date, so I hope that Ubisoft can still fix some bugs and improve it further. :-)
Overall I recommend it to spend good time with kids or friends.

Innovative use of the GamePad controller November 21, 2012
Reviewer: Horacio Dean  
It was interesting for Nintendo not to launch a sports title to coincide with the Wii U launch, especially given the overwhelming success of Wii Sports with the original Wii. Ubisoft has stepped in with ESPN Sports Connection, which includes some of the sports from Wii Sports (Tennis, Golf, Baseball) and adds a few new ones (Football, Kart Racing, Soccer). I found this game a bit difficult to give a rating to, because there are some part of it that are spectacular, while others don't even rise to the quality of the original Wii Sports.

Great sports game for the whole Family! November 20, 2012
Reviewer: luco Fern  

We are having lots of fun with this game. Every sport can be played as a full match and the integration of the new controller is really innovative. Playing simultaneously on two screens (TV and Gamepad) is fun and children really enjoy it. For parents, it is also great to have the Gamepad since you can control your team with the tip of your finger while kids have more physical activity using the Wii Remote Plus. We have played all the six sports in the game and our favorites are soccer, karting, baseball and also the cannonball challenge on tennis which makes playing tennis much more fun than on Wii Sports. On karting you can play up to five players or play by yourself on the Gamepad only. We are already looking forward to playing the game again and having more great Family time during this Thanksgiving!

great family sports game November 20, 2012
Reviewer: K. L. Hicks  
It's fun, easy to play, and we're having a great time with it so far. The kart racing and baseball are by far the most fun, and the tennis ball machine is nice to play with the new pad.
