GDC 2008: LostWinds First Look by IGN

Given the boundless thrills IGN saw in their first look at the previously unannounced game LostWinds this week at GDC, the worries about WiiWare look to be mooted. Design studio Frontier Developments (the design studio behind the Thrillville franchise and the upcoming game The Outsider) has crafted a platforming/adventure game that spans 22 areas of play in a 3D-modeled world that is detailed down to the blades of grass in the background that blow as you breeze by. It's impressive in scope for a downloadable title, and better still, it delivers on the promise of original and innovative gameplay only possible with a system like the Nintendo Wii.

Wow, is it me or does that look cooler than 90% of commercial Wii games? First Eternity's Child and now this, WiiWare is looking awesome.

Where the hell are people going to store these downloadable games on the weak internal memory of the Wii? I've downloaded quite a few virtual console games and the internal memory is starting to get very low...
