    XSEED Games is bringing "The Sky Crawlers", a Wii flight action game developed by the Ace Combat team.

    The game is based on a japanese manga series with the same name and it's out in Japan for some time now. It should be hitting America before the end of 2009.

    The Sky Crawlers is also an OVA, I think.

    Gotta love XSeed!
    Never heard of this game before, but after reading the IGN article, I'm rather excited for it.
    Flying hasn't been done on the Wii either.

    Also I quote of the IGN article:

    "Innocent Aces not only features a cutting-edge 3D engine that enables some of the most realistic graphics on Nintendo's console, but a unique control scheme designed to take advantage of the system's motion controls. Held in your right hand, the nunchuk becomes the flight control stick, which is used to tilt, roll, pitch and yaw the craft. Meanwhile, the Wii remote, held in your left hand. becomes the throttle; tilt it up to accelerate and down to decelerate."

    Says there's some good storytelling in there, that's enough to make me pick up any game. The fact it's a beautiful, rarely done flight simulator with motion controls is a bonus of course [​IMG].
