A bit more of Elebits

Thursday 30 November 2006
With its Japanese and US launch just days away, a selection of new Elebits shots - Konami's intriguing new hide 'n' seek game for Wii - has come out of hiding.

Elebits are curious little creatures that act as the game world's source of energy, so things go pear-shaped when they decide to go on strike. What makes it worse is that the cheeky 'Bits have hidden themselves as well.

The job of the gamer is to try to find the Elebits using the unique capabilities of the Wii-mote, which allows you to push, pull and lift objects while you undergo the search. As more Elebits are found more power is restored to the world which means more implements can be used in the search.

There will be a multiplayer option allowing up to four gamers to compete with each other to see who can find the most Elebits within a time limit. It also seems you'll be able to take photos of your 'Bits to send to a friend.
