Old interview may hold key to NiGHTS control

How the Wii-mote could realize a dream

TODO alt text

SoNiGHTS is coming to Wii. It's massive news for anyone familiar with the beautiful 1996 original and something you should definitely be aware of even if you've never played it. And if you listen, you'll hear everyone saying "The Wii-mote would be perfect for it." But wait a second... is it really?

The press release states "With the innovative Wii Remote, gamers will experience a heightened sense of gliding, spiraling, and looping through seven mystical dream worlds packed with high-flying adventure." We remember using the Sega Saturn's 3D controller's shoulder buttons to execute twists and pirouettes in the air. But how will we do that with the Wii-mote?
