E3: Konami Brings 'Elebits' to Wii
Konami takes advantage of the Wii's unique, interactive controller in Elebits

LOS ANGELES - Konami Digital Entertainment shows their first title specifically tailored to Nintendo's Wii.

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced today Elebits (working title) for the Wii. An action title for Nintendo's next-generation video game system, Elebits lets players use the unique Wii controller to search for and capture the small, mischievous creatures of the title.

Mysterious and tiny creatures, the titular Elebits have been the source of the world's power for the past 10,000 years. In the game world, there are no such things as gas, coal, or nuclear power. Instead, there are many different breeds of Elebits, each with their own unique look and personality. While humans and Elebits have always lived in harmony, these friendly beings love to cause trouble, and it's up to players to track them down and put an end to their mischief.

Taking advantage of the unique functionality of the Wii controller, Elebits allows players to interact with their environment in all-new ways as they search for the power-generating creatures. Using a futuristic device, players can push, pull, lift and throw anything they come across to discover secret hiding places and obstruct escape paths for the Elebits. Players can also devise their own strategy to round up the stray Elebits, using stealth to sneak up on them or creating noise to scare them out of concealed areas. As players capture Elebits and harness their power-generating abilities, numerous options and additional opportunities unfold to find even more Elebits in the ever-changing environment.

"The Wii's innovative controller allows us to explore new game concepts that were not previously possible, and Elebits reflects this new freedom of design with game play that is easy for gamers of all ages to enjoy," explained Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "Introducing original game play elements, Elebits provides players with unprecedented control over the environment and a new level of freedom in choosing how to best accomplish their goals."
