During today’s Nintendo GDC keynote, Satoru Iwata demonstrated a title called Rock and Roll Climber for WiiWare.

Apparently, it allows players to defy virtual gravity by scaling rockfaces using the Wii Balance Board in conjunction with the Wii-mote and Nunchuck.

Then, when you reach the top of your craggy adversary, you’re given the ability to spit in gravity’s face with a rockin’ guitar jam session. Space travel doesn’t have anything on this.

We can’t wait until the inevitable volcano level. Guitars, rockfaces, and hot lava. Sign us up.
