Details about enhancements other than motion control have not been announced at this time. After Metroid Prime 3 we have a pretty good idea what the Metroid Prime 2 Wii-make will be like.


What about Chibi-Robo? Will Nintendo optimize the controls to simulate a remote control toy? Will motion control be used to simulate floor scrubbing? Either way if you missed the Gamecube version get New Play Control: Chibi-Robo when it comes out here. Chibi-Robo’s charming story and loveable character made it one of the best Gamecube games no one played.
