Can’t Get in the Wind? Fire up the Wii Instead

Patent drawing show what the new Wii game might look like

We all know there are times when you just can’t get away and ride. Too much work, or the bike is in the shop or, heaven forbid, it’s too cold or too hot for comfort. Soon you techie types might have a way to virtually enjoy the wind in your hair with a new game that uses the Wii balance board.

Nintendo Life is reporting that Nintendo Software Technology has filed new patents for an apparent first-person motorcycle game controlled with the Balance Board, with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk acting as handlebars. Players would control their virtual chopper  by leaning their body left or right to pull off sharp turns using all three controllers.

There is no other information on the game or when it might be released.
