All-inclusive vacation (except for the food, of course) arrives in July






Go Vacation, the 2011 Bandai Namco game for Wii that resembled the Wii Sportsand Wii Sports Resortfranchise, is being ported to the Nintendo Switch.
Go Vacation’s suite of mini-games spans scuba diving, surfing, jet skiing, ski jumping, snowmobiling, parasailing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, equestrian events, tennis, skateboarding, mini-golf, hang-gliding — it’s kind of hard to keep up, really.
The concept is the same as what helped make the Wii Sports titles a hit: Give folks a lot of stuff to do, make it feel like they’re doing it on vacation, make it more fun if they play it in local multiplayer, and give it all a cheerful hotel lobby soundtrack.
Go Vacation is launching July 27. The game comprises four “resorts,” Marine, City, Mountain and Snow, with activities themed for each. It wasn’t much of a critical success when it launched for Wii in 2011, but with a new console and no similar first-party competition for it out there now, maybe Go Vacation will do better.
