LostWinds' Wintry WiiWare Sequel Confirmed

The latest issue of Edge Magazine takes a long look at LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias, which is the sequel to last year's WiiWare hit LostWinds. No release date was announced.

When it arrives, Winter of the Melodias will allow you, as the game's protagonist Toku, to change the seasons from summer to winter and back, which will be useful for solving different puzzles. According to the preview, excerpted by N-Europe, Toku has other elemental powers too, including generating cyclones. He can swim as well.

LostWinds, by Frontier Developments, arrived in May 2008 to strong critical acclaim and sales. In it, Toku was controlled like a standard adventurer, but with one addition: the Wiimote could be used to draw a path on the screen to provide wind gusts that aided Toku's jumping and battles against enemies.

Winter of the Melodias will also incorporate an in-game map and a hint system, according to the preview.
