The next title to get the New Play Control
treatment from Nintendo is Chibi Robo
, and in being overhauled for Wii, players can expect new point-and-click-based controls, Siliconera
reports. Gone are the analog controls of the original GameCube title, as not only will you guide your robotic munchkin around now by pointing your Wiimote where you want him to go, but you will also be tasked with finishing some of Chibi's chores through motion-based gestures. And the shooting scenes from the original? They've been replaced with light gun-like segments, further taking advantage of the Wiimote's ability to point at things.
The game is set for release in Japan on June 11, and no North American release has been mentioned.
