Some of you may have heard of FlingSmash; it’s an upcoming game published by Nintendo and developed by Artoon. Originally budget-priced at $29.99, this title, where you literally fling a character named Zip and smash him through different objects, will be compatible with Wii MotionPlus and actually looks like a good deal of fun.
One of the most interesting stories to surface regards the game’s packaging. On the game’s case it is stated that FlingSmash, now priced at $49.99, comes packaged with an official Nintendo Wii Remote. But this isn’t your average Wii Remote. No no no! This is a Wii Remote Plus. Currently, nothing has really been said about the Wii Remote Plus, but all signs point to it being a Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus…wait for it…already built in!
That’s right, folks. This is a first-party Nintendo Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus possibly integrated directly into it. That’s a pretty neat addition to FlingSmash, and quite honestly, it was long overdue. The Wii Remote was supposed to offer excellent precision and revolutionary motion control mechanics. While it did offer passable motion controls, the 100% precision wasn’t there. Wii MotionPlus remedied this issue, but who wants to have that huge add-on attached to the Wii Remote?
Though Nintendo has confirmed the existence of Wii Remote Plus to Eurogamer (as has the ad for the game on GameStop), nothing has been clarified. We’ll have more info for you on the matter as it surfaces.
