Lucasarts Not Happy With Wii MotionPlus

You will, by now, be aware of the Wii MotionPlus add on that enables the WiiMote to more accurately reflect your motions in a 3-D space.

This means that every slight movement players make with their wrist or arm is rendered identically in real time on the screen, providing a true 1:1 response in their game play.

This is all good news and opens up the possibility of totally accurate dueling in a sword-fighting stylee.

Good news unless you happen to be Lucasarts as they’re a bit miffed that Nintendo didn’t give advance warning to anyone making, oh…..let’s say……..a lightsabery type of game.

According to the gamers over at Kotaku, Lucasarts wasn’t given any advance notice of the MotionPlus add-on’s existence, despite Nintendo being well aware it’s busily crafting a Clone Wars game, designed around lightsaber battles.   Ooooopsy! 😮

Apparently most developers have received scant information on how to implement MotionPlus features into upcoming games, and the clock is ticking for its addition to games already well into development.

Tsk-tsk Nin – you should really start sharing with the rest of the class!
