Factor 5 enjoyed quite a unique relationship with Nintendo. Due to some bad fortune, we already know that the company had a complete Rogue Squadron game on the Wii that sadly never saw the light of day, and we previously reported on their plans for a new Pilotwings game on the same hardware.
Now former Nintendo Life contributor Liam Robertson - with his latest video through DidYouKnowGaming - has shown actual gameplay from the project that was called WeFly. It got quite far in development and seems like it could have been pretty much every Pilotwings fan's dream game turned into reality.
From cockpit view head tracking AR, to using the Wii's clock and Weather Channel to change the game in real time, it remains quite clear the abundance of talent that was available to Factor 5 back in those days. Just the prospect of prancing around on the Moon immediately gave us a silly smile.
The series has not been heard of since the 3DS debut title Pilotwings Resort. Maybe it's time for Nintendo to finally let us spread our wings again, perhaps on Switch? Time will tell; in the meantime share some of your favourite Pilotwings memories in the comments.
