Wii Play video
The Wii Experience has put up a brand new multiplayer video from the upcoming Wii Play title. More video is also available at GameTrailer.com’s Wii Play page. This is a collection of minigames such as pool and air hockey, but the real seller is that it comes packaged with a Wiimote and will sell for $50. Yum. As with Wii Sports, Miis are fully integrated into the games. Double yum.
This game looks like a nice little package. People will be buying Wiimotes anyway so it’s nice to pay an extra $10 and get a game with it. My only worry is that Nintendo won’t produce enough of these packages and we’ll have a situation similiar to launch, where Wiimotes and Nunchucks were (and still are) in very short supply. Hopefully Nintendo will realize that most Wii owners want at least 2 Wiimotes, and manufacture accordingly. If the launch showed us anything, it’s that there is a STRONG demand for Wii accessories. Make it happen Nintendo!
