Nearly 15 years after Pilotwings 64 was released alongside the Nintendo 64, the quirky and well-received aviation series returns with 3D gameplay and full "Mii" compatibility in the 3DS launch title Pilotwings Resort. Set on Wuhu Island, the fictional location of Wii Sports Resort and Wii Fit Plus, Pilotwings Resort offers gamers more than 30 unique plane, hang-glider, and rocket-belt missions in "Mission" mode. All three vehicles are controlled differently, so players must learn to master each craft before they can successfully complete each mission and earn stars. Gamers who are less task-oriented can instead try out the "Free Flight" mode, where they are encouraged to explore the skies above Wuhu Island to find hundreds of collectibles and unlock interactive 3D dioramas. Players can also snap photos of the island's many landmarks, save them to their 3DS photo album, and show them to friends at any time.
