    sweet, i cant wait to see more of this game in the next e3.

  • Captain N

    E3 on June 2nd is when Nintendo will showcase their games, but I’m sure they will be showing 3rd party games as well such as this !!!! Sounds good so far.

    I hope this (an other games like it) dont turn out to be “advanced slash movement” type games. I hope that when you move the wiimote, that the sword moves at a 1:1 ratio..

  • yeahyeah

    well, that’s what wii motion plus is all about..1 on 1 movement.

  • opiumx

    Yea yea, but we have heard all this before….

    I do think that MotionPlus allows for 1:1 controls (or very close to it). Tiger Woods PGA Tour pretty much proves this, I think.

  • DragonOCZ

    Motion plus isn’t just about 1:1 motion, it’s also about more accurately measuring the SPEED and STRENGTH/POWER of your movements.

  • opiumx

    All I care about, is whether or not it will be a “make a move to trigger an action” type thing or not. Like the waggle gestures, only more sophisticated. I want to be able to jab the sword and stuff like that as well. I really dont see this happening. But Im a skeptic thanks to the initial promises of the wiimote. Its always dramatized. Anyway, tiger woods disc golf online!! Im sold on Mplus just for that….

  • mr awesome

    way cool! this game is gonna be SO much better than if only 5,000 pictures had been taken.

    no one ever promised the original wii remote would have 1:1. its just people assumed it after the E3 wii sports demo. it HAS 1:1 IR response, just not movement. i wish people would get over the whole “that’s what it was supposed to be in the first place” thing. Cos it wasn’t. so move on.
