Somewhere in the land of Spain, Nintendo held one hell
of an event without anyone else on the planet seeming to notice. RevoGamers.net were some of the lucky ones invited, and managed to chronicle the event with pictures and a short video.
As we can see in the picture to the right, the Wiimote has once again gone through some minor design alterations. First, the + and - buttons have returned to their original "return arrow" and pause versions, as seen in hardware shots prior to E3 2006. The Wii logo on the bottom of the remote has disappeared, for reasons unknown. Finally, however, is the attachment of a wrist-strap for the remote, which is a wonderful idea considering the motions required in games like Wii tennis and the, ah...expensive TV sets around the room. With any luck, a similar strap will come bundled with the system and remote.
But that's not all. There are pictures of the back of the Wiimote without batteries, some sleek sensor bar close-ups, and a bitchin' wall mural for Wii Sports. The event seems very classy and much more relaxed than E3.
Wii. Jugar para Creer.
