Nintendo's upcoming Wii™ MotionPlus accessory for the revolutionary Wii Remote™ controller again redefines game control, by more quickly and accurately reflecting motions in a 3-D space. The Wii MotionPlus accessory attaches to the end of the Wii Remote and, combined with the accelerometer and the sensor bar, allows for more comprehensive tracking of a player's arm position and orientation, providing players with an unmatched level of precision and immersion. Every slight movement players make with their wrist or arm is rendered identically in real time on the screen, providing a true 1:1 response in their game play. The Wii MotionPlus accessory reconfirms Nintendo's commitment to making games intuitive and accessible for everyone. Nintendo will reveal more details about the Wii MotionPlus accessory and other topics Tuesday morning at its E3 media briefing.
Now, what will be interesting in my mind is which game Nintendo uses
to showcase this technology. There's really not much known about the
second half of the year. Nintendo's Fall/Winter is wide open, and that's
what I think is really cool about Nintendo's Keynote... So much is un-
known that there could be some really cool stuff... There's also a whole
lot that we could be disappointed about. Will we finally Animal Crossing
Wii or the rumored Kid Icarus Wii... I don't know, and that's cool.
EDIT: I forgot to mention Mad World. We'll see if Nintendo pushes that
at all, or if they even mention it. Also, Matt over at IGN thinks that we
might see Kid Icarus, but not at the Keynote. Maybe in the developers
roundtable later on in the week like they did with Smash Bros a couple
of years ago...
