New Patents Reveal Balance Board Motorcycle Game

New patents unearthed

It's been a while since we saw a Nintendo-published game that uses the Balance Board, surprising considering the number of boards sat in living rooms around the world, but a new patent filing has revealed a motorcycle game could be in the works at Nintendo Software Technology.

The application shows a first-person motorcycle game controlled with the Balance Board, with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk acting as handlebars. Players would control the motorbike (or, in another example of software, a jetski) by leaning their body left or right to pull off sharp turns using all three controllers.

As with most patent applications, the existence of this filing isn't evidence of such a game being in development, but if it were in the works we'd expect to hear more about it at E3 this year.

I think the vitality sensor will be part of the wii 2 controller, think about it.

Excite series is currently overexploted, and with a fpv, What about Mach Rider Wii?

I would prefer a F-Zero wii but that probably wouldn't use the balance board. This might be cool.
