LostWinds Sequel Heading to WiiWare

LostWinds Sequel Heading to WiiWare on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Frontier has announced a sequel to the well-received WiiWare platformer, LostWinds, in the latest issue of Edge magazine.

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is the follow-up to the best-selling downloadable, seeing a return for the wind-wielding chap, Toku, with a slightly bigger game mechanic this time round. As well as shifting about objects and himself with the power of wind, the tyke now has the ability to switch seasons - between summer and winter. Toku's also learnt to swim, and has strengthened his wind skills to break through the heaviest of rocks.

There'll also be improved navigation via a better map system, and less head scratching with clearer and more frequent hints and tips. Aside from this there's also promise for more interesting and innovative features to uncover and try out.

Thanks to N-Europe.

What do you think of the idea of a sequel - did you enjoy the original LostWinds?

Thats good, there isnt a lot of decent wiiware games and the first one was great, the only thing missing was a map system.

!!#�ouknouk#!!

cant wait for this love the 1st one so much

first one was good. It ended early and in a weird way though, so maybe this is going to be better Smilie

I really like LostWinds. For me it's a "one of the kind"-games like World of Goo etc., and I have been looking forward for that sequel so much.

I hope they will make this sequel bigger. It took me only 3 hours 30 minutes to complete the first one. When I defeated the final boss and saw the credits, I was like "WHAT! THAT'S THE FINAL BOSS? DID I COMPLETE LOSTWINDS ALREADY!?". I was really dissapointed about the game lenght. Smilie
And yeah, some kind of map system would be really appreciated.

English isn't my main-language, so I will possibly make some grammatical failures sometimes. But shit happends.

Here's an image (got from Joystiq). You'll also be able to turn water into clouds and then make those clouds either rain or snow.

They say they'll address the main problems of the first game, mainly the length, so I don't think this will be as short as the first. Smilie

All I can say is, about time! The first game was left on the cliffhanger, and it was so short, I'd have thought LostWinds 2 would be on the way much sooner.

In any case, I can't wait!

I still haven't beat the first one. I can't find this village OR the top of some mountain. And finding help is hard because we're stuck with a Dutch translation... How am I supposed to know how it translates back to English?

What do they mean with 'a better map'? The first game didn't have any!
But I guess this sounds good. Not sure I will buy it though.

Utterly fantastic.
Theres been quite a lot of great WiiWare games announced recently. (CaveStory, NightGame, AndYetItMoves, and that Knytt Stories like one I forget the name of).

Really enjoyed the first LostWinds and this looks like it could be even better.

Make it 3-4 hours longer, spice up the graphics a little bit, add more music, sell it for 1500 points and I'll be very happy...

Still haven't beaten the last boss on the original yet. Smilie

Smilie I've been eagerly waiting for this sequel. The new play mechanics sound wonderful, but I want some gameplay footage to see how they actually play out.

Did any one else combine skills like holding a rock in a whirlwind then placing fire inside of it? I really can't wait to play with the physics in Lost Winds 2.

Very good news. Really liked the first and the longer playtime and map system should make this one even better than the first.

Thats asking a bit much dont you think?
This isnt a full price game, 7 hours for a game of this quality would be quite expensive to make.

Hehe, after I complained about the original, I decided to give it another try. I finallly found something! Now I just need to find the chest east of the abandonded city... whatever that may be.
