PilotWings Returns At Long Last On 3DS

By Ishaan . June 15, 2010 . 4:47pm

When Wii Sports Resort first released, Miyamoto said that he wanted to use the game’s locale — Wuhu Island — as the setting for another game. To, in a sense, treat the island as a “character.” And Nintendo have done just that, with PilotWings Resort taking place there.

 

According to Nintendo, “You can soar through the skies over the familiar island in a hang glider, jet pack or airplane, each with its own unique controls, its own distinct feel of flight and its own new game play in 3D. PilotWings Resort features a breadth and depth of field that can only be achieved with the 3D effects of the Nintendo 3DS system, offering a feel and style of play never before seen in a flight game.”

    I love the original Pilot Wings, never played 64, and adored the flight game on Wii Sports Resort, so this is looking megagreat.

    Although I’m sad Wuhu Island is being rehashed… damn it, this is Pilotwings. We haven’t had a new one since 1996. NINETEEN NINETY-SIX.
