Wii Hide you Seek

A forum member over at the official Nintendo website believes he has seen an article in the upcoming issue of Nintendo Power magazine that details a new game entitled Wii Hide You Seek.

The following extract is taken from the Nintendo forums:
Wii Hide You Seek brings a very basic concept into the picture. Its a massive online hide and seek game, featuring numerous locations, such as a Mansion, a neighboordhood, or even a city. It will offer many different ways to play online.

How does it work?

The gameplay is simple. Teams are assembled and choose a game to join via the lobby. Each game will have its own unique setup, the different play mods that have been announced at this time are listed below.

Each team is designated a specific chat channel, and will be able to communicate via a microphone (it doesn't mention if this is built in to the controller, or if you have to buy it, but either way it means we won't be texting online. Yes!)

You might wonder how an online hide and seek game works, I mean won't it be easy to find each other? Not to worry, using an ingenious level design, you might play the same map numerous times, but it will never seem the same.

Every game will be its own "dedicated game". This means that within each game, whatever happens is entirely unique. For example in the neighborhood level, there might be cars parked outside houses, and you can climb into truckbeds and hide, but its possible that another time you play, this same car will be gone. Also, backyards for example are fairgame, this means that sometimes you might find a backyard completely empty, and other times there might be a dog, and it will alert the enemy of your presence.

In order to officially catch someone in the games, you will have to physically run up to them, and reach out with one of the controllers (most likely the Nunchuck [see bottom of post] and touch them.

Once a player is captured, they can switch between any of their teammates locations, and still communicate, however they WILL not be able to see an opponent, even if they are on-screen for whomever you are watching. This is to keep the game fair and balanced.

So does this mean it might actually FEEL like a real hide and seek game? That's what this seems to be shaping out to be. With real in game movement, it seems to me like this will be one big, virtual playground for us to play in, and this is only ONE level! Imagine the possibilities. Here are the game types, to get you more excited.

The poster reveals the different game modes and appears to be extremely knowledgeable on the 'new' title.

There is no word from Nintendo at this point to confirm the story but, if it is true, it's once again an extremely interesting concept.

If this is true, then say hello to yet another kids pokemon machine :/ Nintendo need to really start ealising that their first gen users are older now and need better games than Pokemon red green yellow and every other colour.
