Sega Japan has announced that the upcoming Wii revival of the Nights franchise will be the first game to directly interact with the Wii Weather Channel.
As a meteorologist I approve of this idea!
sounds cool that, u be buggered if you live where it rains all the time tho
Like Manchester you mean!!
haha, dont live in manchester, North wales so thats actualy worst(sometimes)
Wow! Sega announced weather for NIGHTS today? Wait a second... this was announced months ago to Gamestop when one of the game's developers showed up on our monthly videos we play in the store.
That's pretty cool. Why not right? If they feature is there put it in the game. Did Madden do this yet or was that proven to be untrue?
Haha, I'd love to see this in the new Harvest Moon, having droughts and stuff :P
First comes "waggle" and now this? I must say that "waggle" has intrigued me enough to amass a 76 title library for my Wii, but now Wii games are going to be influenced by real-world events. So, now I'm imagining an FPS that pulls real global conflict data and drops you into the action or maybe a "cops vs. robbers" game that has you chasing real criminals. How about a cross-country racing game influenced by real-world construction & traffic delays? Is social-networking the future or is this? Bring it on Nintendo!
It would be interesting to see a game that takes into account the news channel, the everybody votes channel, and the weather channel and create content based on public opinion, world events and local weather. That would be terrific! The re-play value of such a game would be unmeasurable! It might be coming though. I remember reading somewhere that Nintendo has some huge plans for the wii channels and mentioned that they had some never-imagined before ideas for this feature. Let's hope that this is just the beginning of it.
This is awesome. Sadly I can't see it being a game I'll get, but I've been wanting someone to try something like this. Ideally I wanted to see it in the next Zelda game, but hats off to Sega for doing it.
