Nintendo Wii: Big New Games Using Wii MotionPlus Coming Soon Says Reggie

Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Aime has assured gamers that there are plenty of unannounced and announced Nintendo Wii games that will utilize the Wii MotionPlus peripheral in the very near future.

“There’s tremendous support for Wii MotionPlus. First, what it would highlight is that Wii Sports Resort continues to sell exceptionally well. In addition to that you’re seeing some fantastic third party support. Red Steel 2… about to come out. And from a first party perspective we showed Fling Smash. There are more titles that are coming, it continues to be a core part of what we do.”

Another thing the Nintendo of America President pointed out was that they don’t interfere with their developers’ control decisions. “I guess what’s unique with Nintendo is we don’t force our developers to stick to a particular type of control scheme, and you’ve seen that. Everything from the new Metroid title to be single remote driven to Fling Smash utilizing the Wii MotionPlus. So it’s all about what’s right for the game.”

  1. I want Star Fox Wii to be announce like yesterday! Hearing this kind of gives me a teeny bit of hope that they might do it,

  2. Looks like Nintendo gave the Wii MotionPlus time to trickle into millions of homes via Wii Sports Resort before they started plotting lots of traditional games that required it starting with this E3.

    1. I noticed yesterday that they replaced Wii Sports with Resort when you buy a new Wii, which means it include Motion-Plus, and the price is STILL $200! I think that’s a pretty good deal.

  3. I love playing Runescape. I really enjoyed your article and your website. I have bookmarked it and added it to my rss for future updates and posts. I hope you have a great future and enjoy playing Runescape and hope you finish the game..
