Balance Board Controlled Mecha Game Turning Over In North America


Studio Zan released Overturn, a tournament style robot fighting game, on WiiWare in Japan. Thanks to an ESRB rating we’re pretty sure it’s getting a domestic release too. Overturn became notable for its control scheme, you can use the balance board to control a robot by shifting your weight. Don’t worry if that’s not your thing. Overturn has a standard control set where the Wii remote and nunchuck are used to pilot one of the eight robots too.


Learn the controls in single player mode. Then challenge a friend locally in a split screen or over Nintendo Wi-Fi. Right now, Overturn is the closest thing to Virtual On on WiiWare.
