Pilotwings Resort puts the player in the pilot's seat as never before in this long-awaited Nintendo PR three dimensional update to the Pilotwings series! Import your Mii characters from the Nintendo 3DS Mii Maker and explore Wuhu Island (the star of Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus) by plane, by hang glider and by rocket belt.

Each vehicle type features unique controls that offer a different challenge. Complete around 40 challenging flight missions in Mission Mode to earn stars, or scour Wuhu Island for hundreds of collectible Extras in Free Flight Mode as you unlock interactive 3D Dioramas of various aircraft and famous island monuments. Get a bird's-eye view of familiar Wuhu Island sites - and a few new ones!

You can even share your experiences with friends and family members by taking in- game photos and saving them to the Nintendo 3DS photo album. Pilotwings Resort is an aerial sports game gem that offers amazing 3D views of Wuhu Island.

  • Please Note: 3DS titles are not compatible with standard Nintendo DS consoles

  • Auto stereoscopic 3D Flight Simulation like never before: 3D Flight simulation without glasses, unprecedented realism and precision in controls, combined with relaxing and coloured cartoony look of Mii characters and Wuhu Island. Pilot Wings Resort is a benchmark of how autostereoscopic 3D can be put to good use to create gameplay.
  • Soar through the skies: Soar through the skies over the tropical Wuhu Island in a hang glider, rocket belt or plane-each with its own unique controls, distinct feel of flight and new game play
  • Hours of high-flying fun: Mission Mode and Free Flight Mode offer a wealth of activities, challenges and gameplay for gamers of all tastes
  • Take control of an amazing 3D flying experience with your Mii characters: Pilotwings Resort pulls your personal Mii character from the Mii Maker application, and features the Mii as the star of this adventure
  • Share the fun with family and friends: You can snap photos of postcard-perfect locales on Wuhu Island with the hang glider in Free Flight Mode and as part of select challenges in Mission Flight Mode. Photos of your aerial adventures on Wuhu Island may be saved to the Nintendo 3DS

Pilotwings Resort sticks to the recipe like a fly to a jet plane's windscreen. You start on novice stage learning the basics of your environment (effectively, the skies above a quaint little holiday island) and your various craft. Then you work through bronze, silver, gold and platinum cups, each offering a selection of challenges. Sometimes you're flying your plane through a series of rings, shooting at targets; or you might be swooping gracefully over the town on your hang-glider, tasked with taking a glorious photo of a historic lighthouse. The control experience is different for each craft - the jetpack is all about careful bursts of speed and constant downward glances at the land below, while on the glider you must look out for thermal air currents to provide you with extra height.
I cant help feeling that this game was released more so to show what 3d effects the 3ds was capable off rather than a true game that gamers can enjoy, and it does this nicely, out of all the launch games this has the best use of 3d yet. However this is also the only 3ds game i have played to date where i have had to turn down the 3d effect to halfway as the combination of bright colors really do hurt your eyes on full 3d after short time playing.
The new analogue thumbpad works really nicely in this game, giving you intricate and comfortable control through some tricky aerial courses. However there was certainly room here to provide more in terms of options and activities, this was after all a key launch title for nintendo, so some sort of Street Pass implementation would have been welcome. But for gamers wanting a nicely sedate, yet increasingly fiddly and demanding challenge, Pilotwings Resort delivers.

I pre ordered this game separately to the 3DS. I thought that being a flying game that uses your mii and looks relaxing would be a good starting game. I was right. I love Wuhu island and have enjoyed doing island flyover on wii sports resort (another great game). When i got it i was so excited and when i tried the jet pack it was so fun i couldn't stop playing it. the game progresses mixing some challenging levels with easy and funny ones. It is not a hard core game it is for the relaxed gamer who doesn't want to be shooting some one at every corner they turn. People say it's not a long game but i disagree there is plenty of content to keep you going until you've saved up for another game.

 pilotwings at last and very good

I have waited since Pilotwings 64 back in 1996 for a new pilotwings game and finally it comes out out. First of all i have to say that after all the years of waiting i have always hoped they would have made a full screen console version of pilotwings. Pilotwings 64 for the N64 is one of my all time best games and i still play it to this day. They never made a Gamecube version and im still hoping that a Wii version comes out. If they were to use the Wii motion plus sensors they cud make the flying controls and landings very smooth and precise. Anyhow its a handheld version we have to settle with for now and i have to say that pilotwings resort for the nintendo 3DS has exceeded my expectations. the controls are very smooth, the graphics are very nice and wuhu island from wii sports resort is an ideal location for the game. And like pilotwings 64 you will have to master the game to get the perfect score on all missions so its very challenging but still manages to have that relaxing pilotwings feeling to the gameplay. if you like flight sims and enjoyed previous pilotwings games then i highly recommend this game. the 3D is amazing but you shud play for limmited bouts off time as the 3D can make your eyes go a bit funny after to long.
