Nintendo has announced that its new title Wii Sports Resort, the follow up to the original Wii Sports, has hit the million sales mark in its first month since launch in Europe.

The first game from Nintendo to make full use of the Wii MotionPlus add-on, which claims greater accuracy than without, Wii Sports Resort offers gamers 12 sports to compete at from the comfort of their living room.

The game has also sold more than one million copies in Japan and the US, while separate sales of the Wii MotionPlus accessory have exceeded 936k sales across Europe since its launch.

"The early sales figures represent a strong start for Wii Sports Resort, which is on its way to becoming another Nintendo title that sells steadily over an extended period of time as opposed to a single flash on its launch day", said Laurent Fischer, managing director, marketing & PR, Nintendo of Europe.
