First Details on Kensax Wii

First Details on Kensax Wii on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The latest edition of Famitsu has revealed the first details on Nintendo's latest Wii experiment, Kensax.

The mini-game collection at first sounds like a regular collection of puzzlers and point 'n' shoot, but according to IGN the title originates from the term "Kensaku", Japanese for searching. Essentially players search something in a directory and the games are played using the number of results.

The magazine has detailed a few of the 11 games available, including Battle! Search Panel 9, Connect! Search Puzzle and Fastest! Search Shooter. With each of these, words from the results are used to combine, search and pair up words by using the Wii remote to point and click away on screen.

The game disc includes 3,000 terms but also allows internet connectivity to expand the default list. It's said to be weaving its way into Japan later this year.

Do you think this idea can take off? Would you be interested in a Western version?

Sounds perfect for the current market, to be honest. Just look at how the search-and-find adventure Mystery Case Files has stormed the charts here in the UK this week!

I must say I didn't understand at all how this game works... *question mark*

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

Say what? Smilie

Tis puzzling indeed.

I do approve of semi-puzzle/story games though, as they are true bridge-builders between new gamers and existing game types.

It's been like that since launch! Seems Nintendo UK totally underestimated its initial demand.

It's amazing everyone loves a little "i spy" type of game i play that game all the time at school, the I Spy computer game.

When all is bad don't look for a easy way out. Because you wont know what to do once your out
