Pilotwings Resort is the third installment in the flight simulation series of the same name. The game was developed by Monster Games, the same team that developed all the Excitebike games for the Wii, and published by Nintendo. It was released as a launch title in North America and Europe.
Pilotwings Resort was announced by Nintendo at the E3 2010, where a playable demo was featured that revealed the return of plane and rocket belt missions. Later media unveiled the return of the hang gliding missions as well. Pilotwings Resort is the first Nintendo 3DS game to feature Mii characters, and is set upon the fictional Wuhu Island, which was originally featured in Wii Fit (Plus) and Wii Sports Resort. The latter had featured its own flight sporting event, which was adapted for this game.
