Wii Has The Power...

Posted by Anthony Dickens

... Glove. Just in case you missed it, here's the brand spanking new Power Glove for Wii.

When Wii was first announced, alot of people said "wait, isn't that just a power glove all over again?" Thankfully they were wrong, Wii has proved to accomplish exactly what the Power glove wanted to achieve on the NES over 15 years ago. It was only a matter of time before someone attached their Wiimote to a glove and injected everyone with alittle nostalgia. Great work Japan.

Hold on, what? Your too young to remember the Power Glove? Here's a recap from Wikipedia:

The Power Glove is a controller accessory for the Nintendo Entertainment System designed by the team of Grant Goddard and Sam Davis for Abrams/Gentile Entertainment, made by Mattel in the United States and PAX in Japan. Introduced in 1989, it was the first peripheral interface controller to recreate human hand movements on a television or computer screen."

Seems the Japanese have nothing better to do than play endless amounts of video games and come up with new crazy YouTube ideas, check it out:

When I saw the Power Glove in the Fred Savage full length Nintendo advert 'The Wizard' (ok it was supposed to be a film) I knew I wanted one. I never did get to own one though! Shame.
