Wii Prototypes

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Some weird and wacky Nintendo designs that didn't quite make it into production.

Okay this is old news, but I wanted to post it anyway for those that haven't seen it, here's a except from an article posted on DarkZero last year.

"In all honesty we see two remotes that could have worked well - had we not seen todays version - and one lazy Wavebird redesign... then we see A GIANT STAR. Until this day we had not known such a thing existed but now that we know the existence of 'StarPad' we want it... We have no idea how we would use it or why it was ever created but it seems like it is the most beautiful creation even. Maybe the star is the 'win button' and if you press it you win at everything no matter what game you play."

Gotta love that StarPad! haha.

Well, I am glad those ones were never released. None of them look easy to use.

I be there were a lot more than that! Some of those look like controller horror, the final design does seem the best. However the star pad looks rahter awesome XD, I'd love to see how that plays.

I think the star pad would be more damaging than the wiimote now. It's a freaking frisbee, I would actually want to throw it into my tv.
