Announcement: Rage of the Gladiator to be first WiiWare title to support Wii MotionPlus

Ghostfire Games - Game development studio

We listened to you, and added Wii MotionPlus support!  
Click here to see the video.

“We listened to you, the Wii community.” said Ed Roman, CEO of Ghostfire Games. “The community encouraged us to explore Wii MotionPlus and we listened to your feedback. The result is pretty awesome – we actually love playing it with Wii MotionPlus even more than traditional controls. We’ve also added a basic motion sensing mode as well, for people to use the Wii Remote + Nunchuk in case they don’t have a Wii MotionPlus device. “

Using the new Wii MotionPlus controls, you can swing your warhammer in a variety of directions as you pound on your opponents. You can also swing the Nunchuk to perform a bash with your shield.

Wii MotionPlus Control Scheme
Nunchuk thumbstick: Dodge left, dodge right, jump
C Button: Shield block
Swing the nunchuck: Shield bash. Doing this will start a combo if the enemy is vulnerable.
Wii Remote
Swing the Wii Remote Left, Right, Up, or Down: Perform aimed swings in those directions. You can optionally hold down B to aim low when swinging left/right as well.
Swing the Nunchuk: Perform a shield bash, which will unleash a devastating combo if you have sufficient energy.
A Button: Cycle through combo finishers that you have learned

    [...] you won’t be left out in the cold. Ghostfire Games CEO Ed Roman confirmed on the company’s website that Rage of the Gladiator will also support standard Wii controls. Look for it later this year. [...]

    Good move, something I said on this site and your forum from the start.
    Wii Motionplus was created for this game (or vice versa). :-)

    Now all you need to do is follow up on my other suggestion and make a full price (or wiiware) dungeons & dragon type of game. Go on continue to be the first and give the Wii an online multiplayer D&D with downloadable dungeons and quests. You know you can do it. LoL

    We done Ghostfire and keep it up.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely ddo I encounter a blog that’s both educarive and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happpy I came across this during my search for something
    regarding this.
