Yuji to create 2 all new franchises exclusively for the Wii

He knows what you do at night.

Thats right, 2 new franchises/titles exclusively for the Wii,
by famed Sonic Creator Yuji Naka.

TOKYO--It has been more than two years since Sonic creator and producer Yuji Naka left Sega to establish his own development studio, Prope. His activities have been completely unknown since then, but at the Tokyo Game Show this weekend, Naka finally unveiled his studio's debut titles, Let's Catch and Let's Tap.

Now for some info on Let's Catch...

The first title introduced by Naka was Let's Catch for the Nintendo Wii, a Wiiware set for a December release in Japan. Costing 1,000 Nintendo points, Let's Catch was described as a game of catch where players use the Wii Remote to catch a ball and throw it back. The game makes use of the remote's built-in speaker and vibrator to simulate the real feel of a caught and thrown ball. As the player keeps catching, the ball speeds up until it goes beyond speeds possible for a human to throw. In a trailer shown to attendees, the ball reached up to 250 kilometers per hour (155.3mph) by the end, when the player was playing catch with an alien on another planet.
Let's Catch features a number of other minigames, such as hitting numbered panels on the screen with the ball. Up to four players can play together, and the trailer showed a family having fun playing.

And more info on the most intriguing game at TGS this year....

The second title introduced by Naka was also a Wii game, titled Let's Tap. "It's been 25 years since I've been making video games, but I believe this game is quite amazing," said Naka, as he took out a large orange box. As it turns out, the box was...just a box.
"Yes, it's just a box. This game uses boxes and allows you to play without the need of a controller," revealed Naka, who went on to demonstrate how the game is played.
As Naka demonstrated, Let's Tap is a collection of five minigames, and it's played by simply placing the Wii Remote upside down on top of a box. When the box is tapped, the remote's internal sensors will pick up the vibration and relay it to the video game as control input. Any kind of cardboard box, such as a Kleenex box, will apparently do.

Are these titles good news to you?

Seems like the Let's Tap title is intriguingly captivating.

There have been alot of weird arse quirky games annouced for the Wii..
Can you belive "Hula Wii"?

This looks awesome! I wonder if it will be released in Australia. When it comes to games, I hate living in Australia. Never knowing if things will be released.
