Do you remember when you first heard of the Revolution (the code name name for Wii) way back when, and how it would use motion controls? And do you remember thinking that this would be the most awesome thing in the history of the world, and how awesome games like Red Steel and Zelda would be, with perfect swordplay controls?
Well that didn’t really happen, since the Wii Remote wasn’t as good as we originally thought it was. But with Wii MotionPlus, those dreams might come true as this little device effectively “fixes” the Wii Remote.
Nintendo just now unveiled the release date, which is June 8 in the US for $19.99. The peripheral will debut in Europe on June 12 (no price details). No words as for Australia, but it seems Nintendo aims to give this to the world at approximately the same time so don’t fear, kangaroo-lovers!
As a side note, Wii Sports Resort, which was going to launch alongside WiiMotionPlus, will launch about a month later – in July. This means that games such as Sega’s Virtua Tennis and EA’s Tiger Woods will be the first to utilize Nintendo’s latest invention.
