E3 2014: Project Giant Robot Revealed as Experimental Wii U Project

Tilt the torso on the GamePad, punch and grab with sticks

As part of what appears to have been an accidental leak by Time, Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed Star Fox for Wii U along with two Wii U concepts; one of these is Project Giant Robot.

This appears to be more a 'tech demo' than an established game, to be clear, but serves as a demonstration of Shigeru Miyamoto's focus to emphasize the gameplay capabilities of the GamePad. This project is described as "almost like a full-body game of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots", in which the enormous robot's body and torso is controlled through motion, while sticks are used to punch and grab. The GamePad will show a first-person point of view, while the TV has a zoomed out perspective.

We'll perhaps see more in the Nintendo Digital Event, and we'll certainly aim to go heads on at E3 itself.
