Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Picture Kirby Canvas Curse for the Wii. What do you get? You get a WiiWare launch title developed by Frontier Developments, titledLostWinds. Being a launch title, it should come out on May 12th, which is when WiiWare will launch here in the US.

In LostWinds, you control Toku and Enril. They call this “single player co-op”. Toku is a regular boy out to save the world of Mistralis, and Enril is the wind spirit. It is basically the gameplay, he is the wind that controls where Toku goes in the air and is the essence of the game.

You control Toku with the analog stick, and Enril with the Wii remote. This means that although it is a 1 player game, 2 player co-op looks to be inevitable. Your wind spirits will gain more and more power as the game goes on. The wind can either blast Toku or carry/swirl him in any direction.

LostWinds is set for release on May 12th. It will feature 21 different levels that offer great replay. It is one of those game where you will try to beat your score and time, which will be where the replay will come from. Also, it will be a game you will try many things with. No price has been announced yet, but from the effort that looks like is being put into the game, expect a $10 price tag.
