Shaun White Wii: “the Balance Board feels right”, says Lim

By Mike, Saturday, 12 July 2008 20:04 GMT

Whilst talking exclusively to videogaming 247, Shaun White Snowboarding comm dev man Clarence Lim explained just how using the Balance Board is going to work, saying that first and foremost it just “feels right.”

“You stand either regular or goofy (with the Balance Board facing either left or right) and shift your weight to ride,” he explained.

“You jump by doing a little hop. Tricks respond to a combination of the A and B buttons (grabs) on the Wii controller and how you shift your weight on the Balance Board. The game is also intuitive and accessible with just the Wii controller. It’s as simple or complex as you make it, and the response is fantastic.”

Sounds good to us. Full interview with Clarence coming soon.
