    Erm... This has been released on GC? When? I mean, I know it was in development for the Cube, but I don't think it was ever released.

    it was originally scheduled for the GC, but was then moved on to the Wii - just like Super Paper Mario and Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. It's not an original game either, it's a GameCube hand-me-down.

    Anyone know teh US and Eu release dates for the game?

    Was designed for the GC bongos I guess, another guess: this game wont work on PAL nor NTSC-U consoles. Not on usenet so cant test it.

    Why do you guess that it won't work on NTSC-U consoles?

    And because it was designed for GC bongos... do you think it will also be operable with GC bongos as well on the Wii?

    Good guess, hence the Jets are Bongos. [​IMG] But I doubt it will be playable with the GCN Bongos. N-Zone (german mag) didn't mention anything like this in their preview. They just said it will be controlled with Wiimote and Nunchuk as 'Bongo'-replacements.

    Yeah, I want to know that too. I might buy it, because the only game I have for the bongos is Donkey Konga. Which is fun, but not a reason to have a seperate controller for...

    You forgot "Donkey Kong Jungle Beat" for the GC, excellent Jump,n Run for the Bongos.

    And its really weak from Nintendo to make Jet Race a Wii game now, it was clearly designed for the GC Bongos, its really a very cheap turn from Nintendo.

    nintendo's forgotten how to make good games, but learnt how to make money fast

    I don't think the wii version of this game will support bongos probably because there's so few of them, and because the wiimote and nunchuck are sensible replacements for the bongos

    But they can make it use either in the same way that the fighting games support the Wavebird.
