Nintendo: Mario & Sonic 2012 Won’t Use Wii MotionPlus According To Sega

Rather surprisingly Sega has revealed that Mario And Sonic At The London 2012 Olympics won’t use Nintendo’s Wii MotionPlus accessory to make the games actions that little bit more precise. So what’s the reasoning behind this? Well, the game’s producer Eigo Kasahara believes that there just aren’t enough consumers with the Wii MotionPlus accessory to make it worth including it in the game. Would you have preferred Sega to implement Wii MotionPlus controls or is the standard Wii Remote fine?

 “The main reason is that we wanted to make this game the perfect multiplayer, party-time experience. We don’t think that many people have four MotionPlus controllers so we didn’t want to limit the gaming experience.”

  1. Not looking forward buying nor playing that game, but hey! Some games make it optional! Come on SEGA (and other developers), just make us use it! Can’t say I used mine very often.

  2. Oh, how differently things would’ve turned out for the Wii if the remotes included Wii Motion Plus from the start.
