Intriguing stuff

Fitness, physiotherapy, monkeys: that's largely the array of gaming styles you can play with the Wii Balance Board, but Marvelous Entertainment is about to introduce the horror genre to the board's repertoire with next year's Ikenie no Yoru, or Night of the Sacrifice.

Players will be using the Wii Remote like a flashlight to explore a spooky abandoned mansion, although the Balance Board's applications haven't yet been revealed. The trailer below also reveals an intriguing Feel the Magic-style graphical effect for certain characters, making them stand out against the typically grimy, gloomy locales.

Hopefully Ikenie no Yoru will make its way to the West as you can never have enough horror games, can you?
