If you wanted to know which Haruhi Wii game to buy, it's been decided for you

Browsing through my list of Japanese sites, I came across this story from Famitsu. Apparently the staff from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi anime will be overlooking production of the Wii game that tentatively shares the same title as the show.

In this game, you'll be playing as Kyon, while the SOS brigade is off on a cruise adventure. Kyon and his little sister were called to the harbor by Haruhi, who apparently won a bunch of cruise tickets in a lottery. So now that Kyon and the rest of the brigade is trapped on the boat with Haruhi, he needs to find some way to escape the hellish torture of the SOS brigade's leader in this adventure game.

Personally, bringing some of the Kyoto Animation staff on board can only mean good things. Much like Disgaea 3, the game will likely now have more little in-jokes pertaining to the world of otaku culture and whatnot that give it the special KyoAni touch.

On the bad side, Sankaku Complex reports on these posters which detail some slight changes to Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekidou -- namely the dancing part, which was the main attraction for the whole game, has been cancelled. So, what's going in the dancing game's place, seeing as it's supposed to come out in November? A bunch of mini-games!

Specifically, Nagato Viewer, Suzumiya Haruhi's Fortune Telling, Mikuru Remo-con, a baseball minigame, and some other things. Clearly, Nagato viewer is going to be the next killer app for the Wii, where you get to sit and watch Yuki do stuff. Really? Really? I'm sorry, but that's about as disappointing as seeing Nintendo show off Wii Music.

I'd really love to know why the dancing game was dropped. Not enough songs? Did they realize that even with WiiMotion+, they couldn't accurately recreate the movements?
