by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

Mysterious and tiny creatures, Elebits have been the source of the world's power for the past 10,000 years. In this world, there are no such things as gas, coal, or even nuclear power. There are many different breeds of Elebits, each with their own unique look and personality. While humans and Elebits have always lived in harmony, these friendly beings love to cause trouble, and it's up to players to track them down and put an end to their mischief.

An original action title for Nintendo's new generation video game system, the game lets players use the unique Wii controller to search for and capture small, mischievous creatures known as Elebits.

Mysterious and tiny creatures, Elebits have been the source of the world's power for the past 10,000 years. In this world, there are no such things as gas, coal, or even nuclear power. There are many different breeds of Elebits, each with their own unique look and personality. While humans and Elebits have always lived in harmony, these friendly beings love to cause trouble, and it's up to players to track them down and put an end to their mischief.

Taking advantage of the unique functionality of the Wii controller, Elebits allows players to interact with their environment in all-new ways as they search for the diminutive power-generating creatures. Using a futuristic device, players can push, pull, lift and throw anything they come across to discover secret hiding places and obstruct escape paths for the Elebits. Players can devise their own strategy to round up the stray Elebits, using stealth to sneak up on them or creating noise to scare them out of concealed areas. As players capture Elebits and harness their power-generating abilities, numerous options and additional opportunities unfold to find even more Elebits in the ever-changing environment.

"The Wii's innovative controller allows us to explore new game concepts that were not previously possible, and Elebits reflects this new freedom of design with gameplay that is easy for gamers of all skill levels to enjoy,"said Dennis Lee, Group Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "Introducing original gameplay elements, Elebits provides players with unprecedented control over the environment and a new level of freedom in choosing how to best accomplish their goals."

Elebits will be launching in 2006.

  • Use captured Elebits and their power-generating abilities to open up additional options and opportunities in the ever changing environment
