Long-running children’s franchise Sesame Street will be making its Wii debut this autumn with two games that use none of the Remote’s buttons.
The games – entitled Elmo’s A-To-Zoo and Cookie’s Counting Carnival – will be packaged with plush covers for the controller in the shape of Elmo or Cookie Monster. These will cover all buttons and triggers, making the game more accessible for younger gamers.
“This is the first time anything like this has been developed and licensed for Nintendo,” said Sesame Workshop’s senior vice president of media distribution Scott Chambers.
“We will be the first to introduce such an aid. We’re doing it so that preschoolers can play learn from these Sesame Street games without feeling frustrated with the controller.”
The games will be published by Warner Bros, and will also be available on PC and DS – with a larger stylus for the latter included with each title.
