BIONICLE® HEROES Set For Release On Nintendo Wii

Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, and TT Games, the makers of the BAFTA Award winning LEGO® Star Wars™ series, today confirms its first LEGO adventure to arrive on the Nintendo Wii™ console: BIONICLE® HEROES, will be released this Easter 2007.

BIONICLE HEROES brings to life the most powerful and exciting BIONICLE characters ever seen in one game, in an action-packed world of adventure and discovery.

Take control of the heroic Toa as they battle against the dastardly Piraka for the ‘Mask of Life’ across the mysterious island of Voya Nui. The Nintendo Wii™ Remote and Nunchuk give the player ultimate control as you learn to master the skills and weapons of all your favourite heroes.

The Nintendo Wii version comes hot on the heels of the successful launch of BIONICLE HEROES on PlayStation™ 2, PC, Nintendo Game Boy Advance™, Nintendo DS™, Microsoft 360 and NINTENDO GAMECUBE™ (NTSC only).

“We're delighted to be able to bring BIONICLE HEROES to a platform as innovative as the Wii. The unique control mechanic will provide a completely new gameplay experience and will immerse the player even further into the world of BIONICLE." said Scott Dodkins, European Managing Director for Eidos Interactive.

BIONICLE HEROES will be available on Nintendo Wii from Easter 2007.

Bionicle is a demonstration of how Lego has fallen.

Although I agree, I've heard some decent things about the Bionicle games, and even better things about Lego Star Wars, so this might be okay.

One day I shall make a computer desk out of legos.

I'd just take a lego "build whatever you like" using the pointer game. If they could find a way to generate instructions from what you built (for doing the real thing) that would be so must buy.

This game reminds me of Gears of War

Lego Creator, I think it's freeware these days.
