Nintendo has announced that the Wii MotionPlus add-on will launch in Europe on 12th June, with pricing still to be confirmed.

One MotionPlus peripheral will also be bundled with each copy of Wii Sports Resort, which goes on sale in Europe on 24th July.

The US dates, meanwhile, are 8th June for WMP and 26th July for Wii Sports Resort. WMP alone will cost USD 19.99 in the States.

That means that Wii Sports Resort will not be a launch title for the add-on, which tracks movements in finer details than the Wiimote.

In fact, for the moment, it's not entirely clear what the launch title will be, or even if there is one. EA's Grand Slam Tennis is thought to be out on 19th June in Europe, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 expected after that.

Nintendo's press release also confirms reports that the Wii version of Virtua Tennis 2009 is compatible with MotionPlus.
