A press release from the E3 folks reveal something's up at Hudson Soft.
Earlier today, the E3 Expo people issued a press release with some "First Looks" at games that will be revealed at the show, taking place next month in Los Angeles. At first glance, it appeared to be just another generic release, but further down the page was this little number:
"Flight Game" - Nintendo Revolution
Take to the skies in a way never before experienced on any home console. Using the Revolution's "Gesture System" built into their innovative controller, Hudson's new "Flight Game" allows total plane control as players pilot their planes through various acrobatic flight maneuvers ranging from sky artistry to bomb drops.
It couldn't be any more clear: Hudson is working on a Revolution game, and it'll be shown at E3 in three weeks' time. Much like the name of the console itself, the title of this game, "Flight Game," looks to be a placeholder until Hudson comes up with a proper moniker for its title.
Back at the Tokyo Game Show unveiling of the Revolution controller in September of 2005, the controller hands-on that was granted to select media outlets included a plane demonstration. In the demo, the player held the Revolution controller like a paper airplane and manuvered it around in space, which caused the plane on-screen to manuver in a similar manner. This as-of-yet untitled Hudson game may be similar to this demo, or may in fact be an entirely different game altogether.
"Flight Game" will be at E3, and perhaps even have a real title. PGC will also be there with all the details!
