Wuhu Island Cameos

Screenshot Required

Pilotwings Resort takes place on Wuhu Island, which was also the setting for Wii Sports Resort. As the location is the same, several of the cameos that appeared in that game are also the same:

  • Mario SFX in Hill Village

    When you fly over Hill Village, you can hear sound effects from Super Mario Bros. coming from one of the houses.

  • The Queen Peach

    The luxury cruise liner, The Queen Peach, is named after Princess Peach from the Mario series.

  • Wuhu Island

    Wuhu Island itself may be named after the exclamation "Woohoo!", one of Mario's many catchphrases.

Meca Hawk

Meca Hawk

After achieving three stars on every mission, including in the Diamond Class, you unlock Meca Hawk, a giant robot that walks around Wedge Island in Free Flight Mode. He doesn't do anything other than give you an extra Information icon to collect.

Hawk was one of the playable characters in Pilotwings 64, and one of the missions in that game was to take down the giant Meca Hawk as it rampaged across the Little States stage.
