Since its unveiling last year, the Wii controller's inspired all sorts of frenzied speculation as to what sorts of games it might be used for. On many a gamer's wishlist though, one thing crops up again and again - lightsaber duelling, courtesy of Nintendo's spacially-sensitive remote.
While rumours were rife that we'd see just such a game revealed at E3 this year, it wasn't to be. However, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has further added fuel to the flames in an interview with The Seattle Times. On the subject of adding a speaker to the Wii remote, Iwata suddenly gallops off at a wholly unexpected tangent, revealing, "We really want [George] Lucas to think about making a game where this can be used as a lightsaber. It should be fun."
So, intergalatic wand-waving, accompanied by that familiar "fzzzzt-wuuuuuuuujjjjjjj" noise: Iwata definitely seems to want it, and we saw a couple of LucasArts bigwigs loitering around outside the Nintendo press conference last week too, which can only be a good sign.
Could this grandest of dreams yet become reality? Come on George, leave the shitty prequels alone and jump to it!
