Nintendo Conference Report! PDF Print E-mail

After watching Nintendo's first conference at the start of E3, we have the full write up of the Wii news, which contains some incredible secrets about the Wii and it's games!

The major secret revealed is that the controller has it's own speakers which play sounds depending on what the player is doing. For example, when pulling back to fire an arrow in Twilight Princess, the controller makes the actual noise of a bow; and when the arrow hits the enemy, the remote makes the sound of the enemy being hit.

The Twilight Princess allows the player to use the Wii controller fully, including thrusting with the sword, the spin attack, firing arrows and even fishing. The game will be released as two different versions, one for the Wii and one for the Gamecube.

New games were also announced, the most exciting being a brand new Mario game, named Super Mario Galaxy. The video quite frankly looked amazing, and the game features brand new moves only possible using the Wii controller. Matriod Prime 3: Corruption was also shown.

Three new franchise games were announced, the first being Excite Truck. Excite truck allows the player the control the truck using the Wii Remote as a steering wheel, and the terrain will degrade beneath you in real time. The second game was Project Hammer, and allows the player to swing the controller as a hammer. The third was named Disaster, which is the player against nature in a huge natural disaster. Very interesting!

Third party games Sonic, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicle, Madden, Downill Jam, Rayman and Spongebob were also given a brief showing, each with their own way of using the Wii Remote.

Nintendo announced a huge 27 games would be playable at tommorrow's booth, and more will be viewable.

Next, Red Steel was shown. The game is set in the U.S. and Japan, and is controlled using the nunchuck to move and the Wii Remote to aim. The demo looked very promising, and showed sword and gun fighting using the Wii Remote.

Mr Iwata was next on stage, promising that Nintendo would continue theur march towards "gaming disruption" with the Wii by bringing in new gamers as well as exciting the older ones. Iwata also told the audience that loading times in games were becoming ridiculously long, and Nintendo is planning to change this by loading games and applications in just a few seconds. The Wii will also provide services even when it is turned off, called "Wii connect 24". Even when the Wii is "turned off" it will be permanently connected to the internet, allowing overnight downloads and players being able to visit other players Animal Crossing towns even when the player isn't on the system.

Iwata emphasised the fact that the Wii will be aiming to bring in new players as well as gamers who already play.

Everybody Loves Wii by chad60 at Wed 13 Jun 00:16

Definitely, Wii has become as the most popular and most sought after gaming console nowadays. It is different from the usual gaming equipment that we used to know of. Many factors were given as to the reason for resurgence of this most innovative games machine over a very short period of time. One is the cost which makes it even more affordable to those who are tight on budget. And the other are the games that went along with the product that requires a different method of playing them. It's a fun gaming machine and is the reason why it is very attractive to gamers and non-gamers of all ages.
