Cheat code: Play at sunset in Event 1: At the character select screen, put the hand cursor over the option to validate the character. Hold the 2 Button and press the A Button to validate. Wait to release the 2 Button until you reach the next screen AKA the warning message. Then this Swordplay event will take place at sunset, instead at mid-day sun.
How to play: Hold the Wii Remote with both hands, with the + Control Pad facing you. The motions you make with the Wii Remote will be directly translated into the motions your Mii makes with their sword.
Protip Duel mode: (1-2 players) Wait for the perfect moment to strike and then do everything in your power to send your opponent over the edge. Keep an eye on the angle of your rival’s sword as you look for openings, and be sure to hold the Wii Remote in just the right place to block attacks.
Collectable Stamps in Duel mode: Follow the instructions from Joe to unlock these stamps…
* Swordplay Duel Cliff-hanger – The final battle ring appears if the two opponents are still locked in a draw after three rounds. It doesn’t matter whether you win or lose. You can get this stamp in single-player mode only.
* Straight to the Point – Push your opponent out of the ring with a lunge in single-player mode.
* Met Your Match – Draw three rounds in a row to get to the final battle ring, then draw again for a completely even match in single-player mode. You may not have won, but it’s no easy feat!
* One-Hit Wonder – Push your opponent out of the ring with only one strike in single-player mode.
* Last Mii Standing – Defeat the Champion in a duel. The key is to never let your defenses down and attack any gaps you see. There may be some sort of reward if you win this…
Protip Speed Slice mode: (1-2 players) Put your hand-eye coordination to the test as you attempt to slice through all kinds of objects before your opponent can even react. Whether you’re slicing giant melons, logs or cake, the aim of the game is to swing the Wii Remote in the exact direction displayed by arrows that appear on the screen. Make the wrong move, and Wii MotionPlus will know!
Collectable Stamps in Speed Slice mode: Follow the instructions from Joe to unlock these stamps…
* Slice and Dice – Win the contest without missing a single object by slicing the wrong way or failing to slice within the time limit. You can only get this stamp in single-player mode.

* Double Time – Slice the alarm clock when the two digits on the display are the same, such as 8.8, 7.7 or 6.6. You can only get this stamp in single-player mode.
* Beat the Speed Slice Champion. Empty your mind and slice with your instincts!
Protip Showdown mode: (1 player) Take on all-corners as an assemply line of enemy Mii characters try to hit you three times and end your attempts to advance along different Island paths. Each level brings a progression of increasingly tough challenges to overcome — with stronger enemies coming in greater numbers to test your Swordplay skills to the limit.
Collectable Stamps in Showdown mode: Follow the instructions from Joe to unlock these stamps…
* Not A Scratch – Clear any stage without taking a hit and losing a heart.

* Untouchable – Fight through the final Showdown stage without taking a single hit and losing a heart.

Protip for Wakeboarding: (1-4 players) Play alone or take turns to see who can rack up the highest score by stringing together stunts.

* Huge Air – Score 100 points on a single jump! Build up your speed and pull off some massive air.
* Bag of Tricks – Land seven or more different kinds of jumps on a single run. Try changing up your speed and length of your approach to the wake to pull off different jumps.

* The Long Way Home – Land 50 jumps and wakeboard all the way around Wuhu Island in Free-Cruising Mode. You have to complete a course afterwards to get the stamp.

Protip VS mode: (2 players) Go head-to-head with a friend in split-screen races that give you even more reason to ensure you make it to the checkpoint as quickly as you can.

Protip Road Race mode: (1-2 players) Take to the track alone or jump on a tandem with a friend for some power-sapping road races around Wuhu Island. The One-Stage, Three-Stage or Six-Stage Races challenge you to come from the back of the pack and finish as far out in front as possible.
Protip VS mode: (2 players) Do you have a rival racing friend who reckons they’re the real king of Wuhu Island’s bike trails? If so, invite them to saddle up for a split-screen contest spanning as much of the Island as you like — keeping in mind there are three computer-controlled opponents also looking to sneak into first place.

Protip Island Flyover mode: (1 player) Take in more than 200 sights as you fly over Wuhu Island by day, evening and night. Points of interest are marked by an “i” symbol, and the aim of the game is to fly through as many of these “i” symbols as possible on your way to seeing as much as possible within a five minute time limit.
Protip Dog Fight mode: (2 players) The relaxing sensation of gliding over Wuhu Island is all well and good, but Air Sports offers a competitive element as well. In Dog Fight, your mission is to burst balloons that hang from the back of an opponent’s plane. Much like in Mario Kart’s Battle mode, except in the air. Whoever has the most balloons remaining after five minutes can rightfully claim the crown of fighter pilot extraordinaire.
Note: An additional Wii MotionPlus accessory is required to play with a 2nd player in Dog Fight mode.
