    Wing Island soars across Europe on Wii on 23rd March 2007

    Hudson have today announced their upcoming title Wing Island will be available for Wii across Europe from the 23rd March 2007.

    Wing Island will be the first flying game release on Wii and will make full use of the Wii remotes features.

    Here's the information from the press release (Screenshots at the bottom).

    The use of the Wii Remote allows players to achieve maximum precision whilst flying, combined with a more realistic feel. By simply tilting the controller left or right, you can turn the plane in the desired direction by angling the remote up or down gamers can easily change height. Quick turns can be easily achieved by waving the remote’s tip to the left or the right.

    Acceleration and breaking is equally simple to control with quick bursts of speed controlled by quickly thrusting the remote forward or backward, whilst more steady speed is achieved by pressing up or down on the D-pad. Not only is this a simple and intuitive way to control the game but it also brings an all-new level of fun and excitement to the game, regardless of your previous gaming experience, as your movements control the plane.
    Here is some details on the different game modes and challenges faced.

    In the main Story mode, gamers progress by completing each mission and unlocking new locations. The game’s single player missions set the player a number of fun tasks to test their flying skills ranging from food drops to extinguishing forest fires and taking photos of assigned objects. Players earn different ratings for each mission based on time, accuracy and damage to the planes. This in turn influences points, bonus points, and money awarded for each of the 27 missions. Earning money in turn allows players the opportunity to tune and repair their plane and even buy one of seven completely new planes. During each mission the player has the opportunity to fly solo or in a formation of five dependent upon which mission they are involved in, therefore enabling the player to experience the best of both flight methods.

    ‘Wing Island’ is centred around three different, exotic cartoon islands inhabited by wacky cartoon animals who will help players complete the tasks they are set. The first island is the smallest and houses ‘Wing Inc’, where the first few missions take place. The second location becomes available after completion of the initial missions and presents more challenging terrain across which to navigate. The third and final island has a large city built on it and is by far the most challenging to navigate across.

    If the idea of completing missions doesn’t appeal to you then select Free Mode where you can fly freely around the islands in the game without constraints of time. At any point in the mission players can also try and break their own records to show off to their friends in the Single Player Competitive Mode. There are three options in this mode: score attack, where players must pop balloons by ramming them with a spike on the plane, time attack where they must race through numbered gates and also Plane Tail which allows you to pop balloons tied to your opponent,

    If a bit of extra competition is what you’re looking for why not go head to head against a friend to prove yourself a flying ace, or perfect your skills by taking on Wii in Two Player Mode. As in Single Player Competitive Mode, this mode also contains score attack and time, as well as Plane Tail.

    This looks good...not sure if I will buy it...I don't have much money to spend on games at the moment...I loved pilotwings and pilotwings64 and I believe this will be the game which holds us over untill an actual pilot wings game comes out.

    also I am LOVING the amount of wii games which are coming out in Europe first.

    I saw this on digg and it is slightly on topic.

    It shows the control system from the Wii Sports Airplane from E3.

    I believe that wing island will properly play the same...

    Not trying to derail here but have you watched any decent animé? Sure there are the kid types such as Beyblade and mainstream stuff such as Naruto which everyone on here seems to love but how about death note, the main character seeing himself as a god, complete narcisicm and basically kills who he sees fit, dark art, styles, humour.

    Oh an to stay on topic I'm not so sure about this game, it screams something that has been stretched out of a minigame into a longer story, If the controls work as they should then it could be okay but I for one will not be spending my money on this. to the person who said they were loving the amount of games coming out in Europe first I want to say WTF? I was in my local GAME the other day and I didn't see one game I wanted to buy, it was the same tat that's always in, Farcry, Red Steel etc. The games I would actually like to buy are only out in America such as Elebits (Elebeets? I mean what were they thinking?)
