Mamoru Oshii's New Film Becomes Wii Flight Sim

Wired writes: "Take to the skies with a new flight combat sim based on Mamoru Oshii's upcoming film.

The Ghost In The Shell director's highly anticipated new film, The Sky Crawlers, comes out in Japan on August 2nd. The film is based on a series of novels -- five to date -- that follows a group of dogfighting pilots in a fictionalized World War II-like setting.

Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces, from Bandai Namco and being developed by the team behind the popular Ace Combat series, will be an air combat simulator made specifically for the Wii console.

Controls in the game will put emphasis on use of the Wiimote for the throttle and the Nunchuk as the control stick. Although the game is inspired by the series of novels and the new film, it will offer an original storyline."
