The French site for Nintendo's upcoming Wii Play Motion has revealed the developers behind the title's mini-games. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that Wii Play Motion featured an "unique" development process where Nintendo collected ideas from various developers, asked them to build a prototype version of it with the help of Nintendo's internal development teams. From there Nintendo selected 12 games to be featured in the collection.

The list of developers that participated in the development process is as follows:

ARZEST Corporation
Chunsoft Co., Ltd.: Creators of the Mystery Dungeon game series.
Good-Feel Co., Ltd.: Developers of Wario Land: Shake It, and Kirby's Epic Yarn.
MITCHELL CORPORATION: Developers of the DS titles, Magnetica and Polarium.
PROPE, Ltd.: Yuji Naka's development studio, creators of Let's Tap and Ivy the Kiwi?.
SKIP Ltd.: Creators of Chibi-Robo, Giftpia and Captain Rainbow.
Vanpool, INC.: Creators of the Tingle series of games.
NdCUBE Co., Ltd.: Nintendo subsidiary and developers of F-Zero: Maximum Velocity and Wii Party.

Wii Play Motion comes bundled with a Wii Remote Plus and is available now in North America.

That's a pretty slick way of developing a compilation game.

Good-Feel didn't develop Super Princess Peach, that was Nintendo and Tose. Good-Feel's first game came out in 2007 (a year after SPP) and was a Japanese-only educational game on DS.

Minor, but it's Ivy the Kiwi? (the title includes a question mark).

Quite an eclectic mix of developers. I'm eager to see what each developer brings to their respective games in the collection.

From the looks of it, each game should have a distinct feel to it. It'll be interesting to see who made what.

Who is developing Mario Party 9? Is it still Hudson despite their troubles? That would be another good game to hand out to multiple developers.

Not sure -- it was the only Wii game without a fact sheet, and it wasn't actually playable at E3.

I was hoping for something like a game by Sakurai, a game by Suda51, a game by Aonuma...
