http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/pax_2010.jpg Fluidity, a new WiiWare game by Nintendo, will be making its debut at PAX, Nintendo of America have announced. While we don’t have screenshots of the game available to us at the moment, we do have a description:

 

Nintendo’s Fluidity combines an amazing physics engine that realistically models flowing water with innovative puzzle game play. Using the three forms of water — liquid, ice and cloud — players will solve challenging puzzles across multiple chapters of an illustrated magical book called Aquaticus. The game offers detailed tutorials that introduce basic game mechanics, but the complexity quickly ramps up as special powers are acquired and enemies are introduced, testing players’ reflexes and ingenuity.

 

Nintendo will also be bringing Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Metroid: Other M to PAX, to give people a chance to try those titles out. You’ll also get to see the props and costumes from the Other M live-action commercial on display.

    FAIL Nintendo Fail, rather have focused on doing something for Golden Sun DS, I guess Nintendo forgot about it…

    Cloud is a form of water? Vapor they mean? Okay even going by Ice, a cloud composed of ice, how would that be different than ice? Im just confused by how cloud fits in there. lol

      We’ll see soon enough. I’m sure it’ll be to go up into the air. I have this odd feeling that it’ll have platformer elements.

      Well since water vapour is basically invisible to the naked eye, they are probably using “cloud” as the way to represent water vapour. Not really that strange, I should think. Yes, it’s not strictly speaking correct, but I think the link is close enough for them to be able to use “cloud” to represent vapour.

      I agree with you on Golden Sun. It’s sad to see it take a back seat, it deserves to be marketed. And while I’m not defending Nintendo here, I think part of the reason is the above games are coming out before Golden Sun, and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn it’s been delayed…again… since it’s not even out in Japan and winter 2010 isn’t that far off.
