    Judging by this boxart taken from Gamestop, it looks like Nintendo are finally going to offer the Wiimote with Motion+ built in! What's more it comes bundled with this game! While the description of the title does say "Using the Wii Remote controller with the Wii MotionPlus accessory" the boxart also says "Wii Remote Plus included" which is the first time we've seen that term so that description could have been one given before Nintendo decided to bundle this.

    Gamestop have it priced at $49.99 which is their price for most newly released Wii titles. I often wondered how Nintendo could sell this game at retail, while it does look a lot of fun and something I'd like to get it still looks like something you'd get on WiiWare. Maybe this is the only way to get this at the moment (possibly with the next Zelda title too) and should help the game sell as well as other peripheral based titles.

    It should be noted that this is the first retail game published by Nintendo since Wii Sports Resort to need the Motion+ to play.



    Here is some footage of the title in action:

    Well, if it does come with both, I will be purchasing this. I really needed a cheap alternative to buying a set [​IMG]

    I just watched the game trailer and what came to mind immediately was Donkey Kong Country on the SNES, guess there are no really new ideas...

    I don't remember smashing donkey kong through a breakout-style maze with bosses? I always thought of DKC as more of....a....platformer?

    Works: Yes
    Looks good: No

    Of course, some will disagree with my assessment, but if, like me, you have a White Wii and a few White controllers, adding a black controller would be stupid.

    If this is indeed a Wii Remote with a motion+ built in, then cool, but I probably won't be getting one, unless you are forced to if you get that game and I like the look of it (haven't heard of it till now, dunno if I want it or not)

    Please take note, "FlingSmash" is not proper Wiimote / Wii Motion Plus usage and may cause expensive property damage.

    Gamestop have now removed the listing from its site completely.


    Apart from the barrel jumping there is nothing else remotely similar in gameplay terms.

    there goes my doubts! looks like this is the real deal. Good thing i held out on that second wii mote; a free one is a much better option. It will definitely make things more convenient. Especially if buy a wireless nunchuck that can fit now without that huge wim+ blocking.

    They should have did this from the start.
    Hopefully, Wii Party has the new Motion+ Wiimote with it even though there isn't any need for it.

    Well, since most of the games don't require wm+, I prefer them separate. Having it attached all the time only adds extra weight...

    Wii Remote Plus?
    Wow, that's kinda interesting.

    Yeah, I know, it's motionplus.

    I hope the battery consumption in it is better, always find that using the motion+ add on really drains the battery more than usual.
