It was pitched as a new Pilotwings, but Nintendo turned the title down. Then it was reworked into WeFly, and eventually ended up cancelled. That's too bad, because the game looks like it could have been fun! I always want more Pilotwings, so a knock-off would have been fine with me too!
The saddest part is that this looks like it would've been a lot more fun (AND would've sold a lot better) then the Pilotwing game that was later released on the 3DS.
That's too bad. This looks a hell of a lot better than that glorified tech demo sold as a full priced game ala Pilotwings 3DS
and we ended up with pilotwings resort, essentially a full priced demo not worthy of the pilotwings name. Yeah that was a better course of action.
nintendo have some serious collaboration issues with third parties OUTSIDE japan it seems.
I wonder how much of this ended up is Wii Sports Resort. . .
