Speaking to MTV’s Patrick Klepek, High Voltage Software COO Eric Nofsinger revealed that the company’s hardcore-tailored first-person shooter The Conduit will feature use of the Wii MotionPlus accessory.
We want to support [the MotionPlus]. Probably for this version of the game there’s not going to be a whole ton of really extensive use of the Wii MotionPlus. For the sequel to the game, we definitely do want to incorporate more melee and things like that. We want to support it.
Additionally, the title will include support WiiSpeak for voice chat in multiplayer. Nofsinger was quick to note, however, that the peripherals are not required to fully enjoy The Conduit. HVS is making sure, through periods of extensive playtesting, that the game is still fun with only the the standard Wii Remote and Nunchuck combo in hand.
The Conduit is slated to hit Wii in the first quarter of 2009. A publisher has not yet been named.
