LostWinds: One to Watch on WiiWare?

With WiiWare now officially launched in Japan, it’s difficult not to feel a slight sense of disappointment when looking at the opening salvo of software. Sure, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles looks lovely and the Dr Mario update is addictive as ever, but a few too many of the titles appear to be either over-priced shovelware or ‘too Japanese’ to appeal to a Western audience.

Fear not, because the US launch is looking a hell of a lot more enticing, largely thanks to titles like LostWinds, which is shaping up to be the kind of game that puts full retail releases to shame.

Next-Gen has recently spoken to several staff members from the UK’s Frontier Developments, and they had some interesting thinks to say regarding the progress of this potentially groundbreaking WiiWare title. Check out the full feature here.
