New Wiiware Game by 1080 Developer to Use Balance Board

17 06 2008

Giles Goddard, developer of 1080 Snowboarding, is currently working on a Wiiware title. No information has been released as to the type of game Goddard is creating, but the man himself has revealed that the title will use the Balance Board. Here’s a quote from Goddard’s Cubed3 interview.

Our current game uses the Balance Board actually, and it’s due out in September on WiiWare. So yes, much like Theta we came up with several prototypes of games and picked one that we thought was the most uniquely suited to the interface. The interesting thing is that the games you would think would work well with the Balance Board actually don’t. So it should be interesting to see what kind of stuff gets made for it.

The game is being published by the Kyoto Company, and is expected to hit Japan around September. Cubed3 will be posting more of the interview with Giles Goddard in the near future, so 1080 fans should stay on the lookout!

That would be cool if Nintendo did make a new 1080 game that utilizes the Balance board.
