Wii Music- New E3 Details: Air Drums!

authorLukatoll | July 15, 2008

Wii Music was shown at E3 just a couple of minutes ago, and frankly it looks awesome! They started off by showing of some air drumming. You use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as your own drumsticks and the Wii balance board as a bass foot pedal. This system seems to work quite well and looks like it’ll give Rock Band and Guitar Hero a run for their money.

After the drum solo had ended, Shigeru Miyamoto walked onto the stage, playing a ’saxophone’. He did this by holding the Remote to his mouth, recorder style, and used the buttons to emulate the notes… Read more »

Mega Man 9 Debut Trailer and Details

authorLukatoll | July 12, 2008

Who can forget that distinct sound of an old-school game? The well-crafted midi music brings the good memories back to all of us. The songs were so catchy that you found yourself humming them all day because you couldn’t get them out of your head, no matter how hard you tried. This is why we play old-school games, not just for the songs, but for that sense of your childhood being rekindled.

This is why we must thank Nintendo for bringing us Virtual Console. And now we must thank Capcom for bringing us Mega Man 9, a new game in the series that brings Mega Man back to his roots on the Wii Ware service. Be prepared to be blown away with the trailer below.

That’s not all. Capcom has also confirmed that Mega Man 1 and 2 will be making their way to the Virtual Console. Also, many thought that Mega Man 9 would be a Wii Ware exclusive, but Capcom has announced that Mega Man 9 will be hitting all three consoles.

Are you a die-hard fanboy of Mega Man? Did you wet yourself when watching that video? Discuss Mega Man 9, or any other Mega Man in ‘The Retro Gamer’ section of our forums.

Rabbids + Wii Board = Hilarity

authorBucky | May 1, 2008

You know, I love me some Raving Rabbid games. Both of the Wii mini-game style Rabbids games have been extremely fun and one of your best bets when it comes to party games on the Wii. Still, I think I love the series of commercials that have accompanied each game even more. Case in point: this recently released ad featuring a Rabbid encountering the Wii Fitness Board. Crazy rabbit! Wii Fitness is for kids…and adults…and the entire family…and possibly your neighbors…maybe your dog. OK, lets face it; if Nintendo had its way everyone would be using the Wii Fit Board.

Even more exciting than the fact that there is a new Rabbid commercial is the way the ad hints at a third Raving Rabbids game that will use the Wii Fit Board. My biggest worry about the board was that no other developers were going to use it for their products, but here comes Ubisoft hinting that they may be designing a whole new set of hilarious Rabbid mini-games around the thing. Hooray! Here’s hoping the ad isn’t just a tease and we’ll all be stomping, balancing, and doing push ups with rabbids in no time.

Gyrostarr Preview and Trailer

authorLukatoll | April 23, 2008

High Voltage Software, the developers of the anticipated FP, The Conduit, are now Introducing a new WiiWare project that is set to break graphical gound on Nintendo’s Download service. Last week we saw a demo of High Voltage’s new 3D engine designed specifically for the Wii. The new engine shows off what the Wii can do graphically and it looks just as good, if not better, then Nintendo’s first-party games. High Voltage Software is attempting to capitalize on the Wii’s strength and create content-filled software for the Wii’s “hardcore” gaming crowd.

Gyrostarr is a four player “sci-fi” shooter that was designed from the ground up for Nintendo’s WiiWare service. The game is definitely the best looking WiiWare game so far and is even looks better then many Wii retail games. Whoa!

According to High Voltage, “Gyrostarr challenges you and up to 3 other players to fly through a twisting, turning techno-plasma canal in space, collecting energy to penetrate an alien portal and warp to the next conduit. Without enough energy the space vessels will smash head-first into an unforgiving anti-void.” High Voltage also stated that each track is guarded by enemies who try to kill you and feast on your collectible energy. Gyrostarr will also feature a number of power ups, some of which include a triple shot, telsa shot, lightning shot, and charged shot. Amazingly, Gyrostarr will include up to 50 different levels in a file size that is less then 40 megabytes.

Gryostarr will run in both 480p and 16:9 wide screen mode and will be available on WiiWare for a mere price of 700 Wii points. Check out the trailer below and keep checking back to My Wii News for more of the latest Wii Info!
