My preview of the upcoming Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga for the Wii seems to have a lot of people up in arms about graphics, gimmicks and general Wii skepticism.

Far be it for me to be the only way the game can represent itself to skeptics and optimists alike. Get a load of this trailer and decide for yourself if the game is something you really want to play. On the Wii. With no motion controls whatsoever.

For my part, I want to like this game. I dig dating mini-games and I think the Wii needs more JRPGs. However, I didn't care for Valhalla Knights on PSP and I doubt moving the series to the Wii will have any impact on that — especially if motion controls aren't even an option. Oh well, at least there's online multiplayer.

Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga is out this fall.
