Koei prepping a game that doesn't involve the Dynasty Warriors!

Speaking of media coups, 1up.com scored a "get" today by revealing that Japanese developer Koei is working on a Wii game that doesn't involve its ubiquitous Dynasty Warriors franchise.

The game, known as Opoona, follows the title character as he travels across colonies to find out what's happened to his missing family.

Opoona's most interesting feature is that it requires just one hand to play--and that one hand will be grasping the nunchuck attachment and not the Wii remote, as is usually the case.

A few screenshots have popped up that depict the game as brightly colored and more than slightly cute--right in line with the audience generally targeted by Nintendo itself.
