Wii Sports Resort is a new collection of fun sports games that anyone can pick up and play. This sequel to the popular Wii Sports™ makes use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is intended to give players a more responsive and realistic experience. The Wii MotionPlus accessory, which is included with Wii Sports Resort, plugs into the base of the Wii Remote™ controller and, combined with the accelerometer and sensor bar, provides an experience that gives players an even greater sense of immersion.
With the Nintendo Press Conference over and the majority of news being out, it’s safe to say that the conference was a bit of a let down. In some of our past predictions, we thought Nintendo would let us in on some ground breaking news. Such as a storage solution or a new Zelda game… we were wrong (for now, just you wait). But on the bright side, we have gotten some new footage of the intense sci-fi FPS known as The Conduit… Hit the jump for the video.
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 »
Animal Crossing, one of the most anticipated titles this year has just been confirmed to be coming out this year. In Animal Crossing you live in a town and do what you like. There is no real goal to the game, other then to share and enjoy it. The purpose of the game, according to the creator, is to feel like your really in a living breathing world. Read more »
If you haven’t heard yet, Nintendo has just announced a new add-on for the Wii. Called the Wii MotionPlus, and don’t just shrug this one off because this is the add-on which will literally change the way we play games. The new peripheral, according to Nintendo, will allow 1:1 like movements on screen. Allowing us all to play that star wars game, or golf like game we’ve been dreaming of since, well… forever! With this being said, we could think of hundreds of different game franchises that could use this controller, and use it well. But lets narrow it down to the top 5 game franchises that we would like for them to use this brilliant new add-on to the already wonderful Wii-mote.
Number 5: Tiger Woods PGA tour
We’ve all wanted that perfect golf game with the Wii-mote, but frankly, we were never going to get it. Until now! While we haven’t seen what this new peripheral can do until E3 tomorrow (which we will be covering extensively) what Nintendo has said is surely promising and we’ll take their word for it. Imagine, being in front of your TV screen, you slowly move you arm back getting ready to take the shot, and the character on-screen does exactly what your doing. Then you quickly strike forward with a powerful blow and at the same time your character mimics you. You get a feeling of control over a game you’ve never felt before and for a second there you actually felt like Tiger playing at the PGA tour. The possibilities are endless and with 1:1 gameplay, this could definitely be a hit if used alongside the Wii MotionPlus.
