Nintendo Wii: Sonic Creator Reveals His Canceled Wii Game

Sonic the Hedgehog creator, Yuji Naka recently attended an Iwata Asks segment in which he revealed his canceled Wii project which was dubbed Haunted Tower. Naka pitched the game to Nintendo when he found out about the Wii MotionPlus accessory as he thought it would work perfectly with his new game. The game worked by defeating monsters “outside the screen” in your living room, by pointing the Wii controller in directions other than the television. Sadly the project was canceled and Yuji Naka began working with Nintendo on the recently released Wii Play: Motion.

      SEGA WILL RISE FROM THE ASHES & IT WILL PWN BOTH NINTENDON’T & GAYSTASTION

      BRACE YOURSELVES,
      SEGA DOES WHAT NINTENDON’T, THE REST COPY. SEGA HAD FIRST TOUCHSCREEN CONTROLER, ONLINE, MICROPHONE GAME, 3D, MOTION GUN etc.

      SEGA WAS & ALWAYS WILL BE AHEAD OF ITS TIME.

      DREAMCAST MADE RECORD HISTORY IN MOST SOLD UPON RELEASE BUT ONLY DROPPED FOR NOT INCLUDIND DVD PLAYER LIKE PS2.

      DAMN U SONY! DAMN U!!!!!

      BUT JUST U WAIT SONY.
      FIRST WE GET THE M0NEY, THEN WE GET THE POWER, THEN WE GET

      REVENGE.

      VICTORY WILL BE OURS! SONIC FTW!

      1. Dude. Shut up. Sega will not release the Dreamcast 2. You’re forgetting they crashed out of the hardware market, you can’t expect the follow-up to a titanic to be an industry leader. Nintendo pioneered 3D Gaming with the Virtual Boy. As for Sonic… nice 3D games line-up!

        Also in your speech, you don’t mention the Xbox line of consoles.

        And you’re seeking revenge on the Sega fans who didn’t buy the console, even though that is likely your target audience….

    1. I’m pretty sure the Haunted Tower game wasn’t going to star Sonic, just made by the same creator is all.

      1. Everything is good except for the banner picture. I don’t like it, and I don’t really think it fits. A artistic mario-themed shot,like a mushroom or mario hat would be more appropriate. Other than that, I like the look. One question, did you design this theme yourself?

  1. Well its exactly the minigame in WiiPlayMotion. Works really well haunting ghosts in Lugi-manner, but it lacks fun for me. Also the new “duck hunt” minigames uses similar mechanics.
