LostWinds announced on WiiWare

Frontier Developments based in the UK have announced a new game that will be coming to WiiWare when it launches in May. LostWinds is said to be a quality adventure that's packed with ideas taking advantage of the Wiimote.


The press release reads:

"Built with Frontier's in-house 3D game engine technology, LostWinds puts the power of the wind in the palm of your hand as you wield the awesome powers of Enril the wind spirit - from raging tornadoes to the gentlest breeze ? to guide and protect Toku, a young boy who is the only one who can help you release the curse placed upon the world of Mistralis by evil Balasar".

Wow, that's one long sentence. It continues:

"Mistralis is a stunningly presented, magical land full of wonder and intrigue that bursts to life with your every action and exploration. The game's novel playful control mechanism lets you use Enril's elemental powers to help Toku in your quest to overcome Balasar ? powering his jumps and glides through Mistralis' different regions, buffeting and smashing enemies and solving puzzles".


Looks good to me, I'll be keeping an eye on it.


It's been confirmed by Nintendo that the WiiWare service will launch on May 12th in North America.

Not bad. I think I may like this WiiWare service. I just hope they don't overprice the games too much.

They are serious wiiware graphics. It's those wiiware screens and videos that show just how lazy or biased 3rd parties doing disc Wii games really are. They're like gamecube/xbox visuals from a mini compressed flash game, just stunning. Now start making proper Wii titles.

Yes in case if you are all wondering. Popular titles will range from 1300-1800 points. Maybe even a whopping 2000 points. Which I think is absolutely ridiculous.

May 12. So as to not interfere with the almighty Brawl? Anyway, Nintendo should benefit from this quite a lot. It'll allow people with good ideas and less money to share their artistic visions. And the fact that you can use Wii point cards, and not a credit card, is a great plus. Take that Playstation Network.

The games look good for WiiWare so far.

I'll definitely be looking for this one just so long as it is better than Wind Waker, which isn't very hard to do.

Scooby Jew, I bet if Wind Waker didn't have its cutesy graphics (which I loved), you wouldn't treat it as bad. Hell, it might be better than Twilight Princess.

Wind Waker was the first Zelda game I ever got.

Wind Waker may have had the cartoon look, but the storyline was amazing. It would have been really hard to make a giant ocean look realistic.

Either complain about the graphics or complain about its size.
