Endless Ocean for Wii was just launch this week. It lets users discover a vast undersea adventure at their own pace. It’s like a virtual scuba vacation in the tropics that includes interaction with hundreds of different animal species, relaxing swims through brilliant coral reefs and exploratory dives on wrecks of ships and warplanes.
Divers can find dozens of different treasures, from gold bullion to ancient artifacts and the marine biology encyclopedia lets divers record the different animals they spot and learn facts about each one. Divers might encounter more than 230 types of creatures, including penguins, tropical fish, sharks, whales and trainable dolphins.
If you are not so good at scuba don’t worry because navigation is simple: to swim, just point the Wii Remote and press the B Button; to examine an object, just point at it and press the A Button.
You can even socialize: when connected to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo’s wireless gaming service, two divers who have exchanged Friend Codes can dive and explore their environment together.
