Motion Controls Send Classic Character Jumping, Swinging, Soaring and Swimming

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Legendary video game character Donkey Kong™ is on a quest to become king of the jungle, and he needs some help. Today’s launch of the New Play Control! Donkey Kong™ Jungle Beat™ video game for the Wii™ console lets players grab their Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers to assist him. Players control Donkey Kong’s running, jumping and banana grabbing by using the traditional control stick and buttons, while motion controls add a realistic feeling to actions like grabbing vines and boxing.

“Donkey Kong is one of Nintendo’s oldest and most beloved characters,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat provides a rich environment that lets the great game play – and Donkey Kong’s personality – shine.”

Fans of the popular Animal Crossing™ series can enjoy a pair of downloadable—and practical—debuts this week via the Nintendo DSiWare™ service. Whether you’re telling time or doing arithmetic, these handy applications will give your daily number-crunching a critter-friendly boost. A new WiiWare™ game also takes a fun peek into the animal kingdom, while the latest Virtual Console™ release sends players underwater for classic Commodore 64 action.

Get ready for an inventive and practical way to experience the charm of Animal Crossing.

“Spyborgs is targeting gamers that are looking for a great, true action game, a ‘game’ on the Wii. Not a mini-game collection, not a bad port, but a game that pushes Wii motion, a game that pushes the graphic capabilities of the Wii, a game that takes itself seriously. This is a real game…Made to take advantage of what the Wii can do and deliver what everyone really wants to see on that platform.” – Daryl Allison, Senior Producer over at Capcom

I’ve been pretty satisfied with what we’ve seen of Spyborgs thus far. It’s great to know that the developers are taking their project seriously and are very dedicated in providing Wii owners with a more hardcore effort.

At CAPTIVATE 09, developers working on Spyborgs shared that the team was considering implementing Wii MotionPlus. But what would be changed with the addition of the peripheral support? Daryl Allison, Senior Producer over at Capcom, explains below:

“We are taking a look at Wii MotionPlus right now. We have some ideas of what we’d like to do with it. At the very least, we know how we could enhance the core combat system that is well-designed around the regular Wii motion right now and we’re looking at some things that we could unlock that would be specifically designed around Wii MotionPlus.”

– Dev team trying to get many uses of MotionPlus in the game
– Centered around MotionPlus
– MotionPlus allowed the dev to “shift the game away from the shooting side of things”
– Production started when MotionPlus dev kits were received
– Backtracking
– Enter areas which were previously inaccessible with new abilities
– Can partake in side quests
– Collectibles, combos, Finish Kills
– Very different from the first Red Steel
