TAKE TO THE SKIES WITH A FRESH PERSPECTIVE

Soar over the tropical Wuhu Island and enjoy the fantastic sensation of 3D depth that puts you in the pilot seat, when Pilotwings Resort launches across Europe on 25th March 2011, exclusively for Nintendo 3DS.

This time, you can take control of the amazing 3D flying experience with your personal Mii character, using any of the Mii’s you create in Mii Maker to pilot the aircrafts. Jump into a plane, hang glider or rocket belt to explore the island at a leisurely pace or race against the clock to complete daring aerial manoeuvres in challenging missions.

Sign up to the Wuhu Sky Club and earn your pilot licence! Learn to pilot a plane, jet around with a rocket belt or hit thermals with a hang glider. Each aircraft has its own unique set of controls to master and in mission mode, you’ll undertake various missions that will push all of your flying skills to the limit. As you complete more missions, your Mii character will progress from novice class to higher classes, unlocking new missions and features along the way.

If you fancy something a little more leisurely, scour Wuhu Island for hundreds of different collectibles in free flight mode to unlock different times of day, dioramas, new aircrafts, and much more! As you take in a view of the spectacular Wuhu Island sights, you can now share your experiences with friends and family members. In certain missions and in free flight mode you can pilot the hang glider to take snapshots in 3D and save them in an SD Card and view them on the photo album in Nintendo 3DS Camera.

So buckle up and get ready to take to the skies like never before, when Pilotwings Resort launches across Europe on 25th March 2011, exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
