Nintendo fans may still be mentally recovering from the company's softcore E3 media briefing that focused on fare like Shaun White Snowboarding and Wii Music, but fans of Wave Race may find the following lifts their spirits. Wii Sports Resort's "power cruising" mode may be a more hardcore appealing experience than it would appear at first blush.

"I'm confident it will surpass Wave Race 64 in depth," said the game's producer, Katsuya Eguchi. We'll give him the benefit of the doubt, considering he's credited with director duties on the Nintendo 64 classic.

Even if it's not as fully featured or "deep" as the original watercraft racer, it's going to have to suffice for now. Eguchi opted not to comment on plans for a sequel, something we shan't hold our breath for.

DISCUSSION

I smiled when I saw Reggie on that water bike.

I hope theyre right, I loved 64 and Blue Storm. Something about those waves just get me everytime... possibly missing the sea, I really do need a vacation...

...how about Pilotwings Wii, Nintendo? You really got me curious about the other games that are part of Wii Sports Resort.
