I like the art direction but I wonder how tedious shaking the remote around gets in this game.

Great looking game. Nice mellow soundtrack, too.

I was wondering the same thing. Even with Wii Motion Plus, I get the feeling it would be difficult to get the precision you'd need out of the Wiimote to navigate even slightly more complex areas. Hopefully they throw a classic controller option in.

I feel like I could watch this trailer forever. It's so beautiful and mesmerizing.

looks cool kinda reminds me of Braid I am a little confused from this video is the character on the screen being controlled by the player i am guessing no right? all the player can do is glide him and stuff? hmmm sounds interesting...quick look please!!

You move him left and right with the nunchuck and puff him up in the air with the wiimote et.c. if I remember correctly.
 
Man it's been so long since I played the first one, I barely remember anything, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and style though.

That looks pretty good

Glad to see that rock monster looks a lot happier. He must have kicked the crack addiction.

Kinda reminds me of Kirby Canvas Curse.

It is actually IR Pointer control that you use in the game and not motion control. The control is pretty much the same ad the original Lost Winds, it played wonderfully in my opinion.
 
Winter of the Melodias is looking to be a great game with the added variety and the new game play mechanics. Looking forward to this one.

Seems like nobody played the first one. The original was an amazing game and the controls were spot on. The character is fully controlled by the stick and buttons, and the pointer is used for wind powers. There is no motion control, unless they've added some for the sequel, which it doesn't appear they have. It was all the little things in the first game that made it so good.
 
You all should really play the first game; it was quite the little marvel.

Seems like a more gameplay-heavy Trine trailer.

Music echoes some parts of Zelda OoT's soundtrack for me - particularly around 1:42.

Looks awesome. Cannot wait, I loved the original game. I would recommend that game to anyone, it's such a cool game while it lasts.

The first game was great, hopefully this will be amazing. Must buy for me.

Nah, it's not difficult at all, it's actually very smooth that it flows with your hand very nicely, just a couple of strokes and you will find yourself out of complex areas in no time.  
 
I am really looking forward for Winter of the Melodias, the first was a great game by all means and its simplicity proves that there is always a place for imaginative ideas in the gaming industry.

Looks amazing, but  Iwonder, how forgiving are the controls? Looks like you have to actually hit your character and stuff to make stuff happen, which could be an issue for the really jittery wiimote. Otehrwise, looks really inventive, creative, and well made.

OMG I loved the first one!  Can't wait for this one!  Going to have to practice waggling my waggler!

Posted by cowdrunk

looks kinda fun too bad the controls would drive me to an early grave 
Posted by squidracerX

 love the music... like the look.... but it looks hard to control, wonder if it is easy to die? if so might be frustrating, but ive never played the first so i dont know. shame there isnt more like this on wii ware. this looks like it is the right direction.

Posted by GalacticPunt

Goddamn I love Lost Wind's music.  The first game still rivals World of Goo as possibly the best Wiiware game EVAR, and it was a launch title!

Posted by GeekyDad

So magical...

Big fan of the first one. I need to finish my second run through. This will be an easy purchase for me.

Posted by EnchantedEcho

This game is so.. zen.
So peaceful.
Looks great for a WiiWare game, might have a look at it more closely.

Posted by WinterSnowblind

I never even played the first one before, but it's definitely something I'm going to have to go back and check out.  As soon as my wallet recovers from the Beatles Rock Band..

Posted by tce

Apparently they listened to complaints of the original being too easy and short. I hope they don't make it uber-hardcore though. That just doesn't fit for a game like this.

Posted by ProlificShadow

This is the kind of art direction they need for all Wii games. Obviously if you go for the realistic look, you can't compete with the other consoles. They need to translate similar visuals to their full retail games. 

Posted by Griddler

Wow, the game looks and sounds beautiful.

This will be my second Wiiware game.

Music makes me want to fall asleep not play a game.

Posted by Gamer_152

This actually looks like a WiiWare game with some potential.
