Earlier this week, Nintendo of Europe released a detailed list of what can be expected for the Wii and DS over the next few months. Wii MotionPlus, however, is still missing in action. Not too long ago, a Nintendo representative stated that Wii MotionPlus is technically not delayed because the company never announced a release date. Nintendo had promised – just a few months ago – that the peripheral, alongside Wii Sports Resort, would launch in Spring. Yet the latest Nintendo of Europe release dates show that both products should not be expected for quite awhile. It does seem possible at this point that MotionPlus could be expected in Q3 2009 or later at this point.

In February, it was announced that Nintendo was forming Project Sora, a new subsidiary under Nintendo. Not too much was said about the type of game that the company will be developing, and details are still scarce. However, Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai is promising that the studio’s upcoming game will be “an experience like nothing seen before.”
Project Sora is still looking for members to join the team, and in fact, there was a whole page in Famitsu that stated the development team is interested in hiring new employees.
“Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo are thinking together, and a new project has been launched. In order to expand the range of what video games can provide to the world, we are receiving full support from Nintendo to create something that Nintendo can’t create by themselves.” – Project Sora Famitsu ad
“I am asking for something special here, something that isn’t Smash Bros.” – Satoru Iwata
“I promise that we can provide an experience like nothing seen before.” – Masahiro Sakurai
