Just when you thought you were getting the hang of the whole Nintendo Wii concept the manufacturers develop something to make it harder for you to use. Due to be released to the UK market on June 12th four days after the launch in the States, the new Wii MotionPlus accessory will be available to confound the waiting public.
The Wii MotionPlus is a plug in attachment for use with the standard Wii hand controller unit, this will allow for finer detail to be recorded by the Nintendo Wii making it ideal for interpretation of a players skill level. Nintendo claim that the new Wii MotionPlus unit will allow for “even the slightest twist of the wrist or turn of the body” to be registered and shown on the TV screen.
The first game specifically designed for use with the Wii MotionPlus will be released on July 24th, the Wii Sports Resort game, which is a beach themed game features water scooters, tossing beach discs (possibly to Disc Dog, a cute little Nintendo Wii sports Resort character) and even duelling with swords. The Wii Sports Resort computer game is a sequel to the highly popular Wii Sports game, and with the new add-on it is likely to take the gameplay to a whole new level. The new Wii MotionPlus will allow players to try to achieve better control and to push themselves to further improve on their performance, allowing for a more realistic experience.
Don’t be deterred from buying into the new Wii MotionPlus technology until the new Wii Sports Resort game is launched, games such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 and Grand Slam Tennis are also compatible with the new exciting technology.
Sorry as yet we have no news as to how much the Wii MotionPlus will set you back, so we will just have to wait until Nintendo give us the official word on pricing.
