Capcam has announced that their multi-platformed title, MotoGP 08, will be extending its console line to the Nintendo Wii. The game features different modes such as Championship, Career, Time Attack, and two-player split-screen action. They have also added all 3 of the MotoGP classes; the 125cc, 250cc, and MotoGP.
Capcom also wanted this to be a more serious type racing title, so they have included the option to either play in arcade or sim more. Also, you will be using your Wii Controller to steer the bike by holding it horizontally, like handle bars of a real bike.
Also, we bring you the entire fact sheet.
The first officially licensed MotoGP title ever for the Nintendo Wii platform, MotoGP turns the Wii remote into a virtual set of handlebars to deliver the definitive two-wheeled racing experience.
The development team’s overriding aim is to deliver an unparalleled handling model that allows access points for gamers of all skill levels and just as importantly provide a challenge to meet each player’s abilities.
3 MotoGP Classes
MotoGP for Wii puts the player at the centre of the world’s premier motorcycling championship by letting them join a team and compete alongside their sporting heroes in all three race classes – 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP. Recent MotoGP titles had excluded 125cc and 250cc at a cost and Capcom is keen to ensure that all the riders are faithfully represented, which also enables complete progression through the ranks as well as giving the gamer a different racing experience per class. The game features a scaled and competitive AI which adjusts within limits to give a more enjoyable race experience on the lower levels but shows no mercy in the higher levels.
This allows the player to decide what motorcycle and racing style suits them best. But rather than the tutorial mode taking players ‘out of the main game’, this mode will transport them immediately into an arcade race and offers hints and tips from the beginning. By pressing START players can pause the game, allowing them to test out and alter the racing model (from ‘Arcade’ to ‘Advanced’ or ‘Simulation’), change transmission options or leave the tutorial mode entirely. Players can also choose the option to automatically see live tips whilst playing, where the game will judge riding style and offer help and advice where needed.
