Opoona starts showing its true colors

I have to admit that when I first saw screenshots of Koei's upcoming Wii RPG, Opoona, I was not too impressed. Something about it looked quite cheap--probably due to the characters being made up of simple, flatly colored balls. That they were set against backdrops that looked vaguely photo-realistic made the experience even more jarring.

Well, Koei has made me do a 180 thanks to the 2-minute video teaser they just planted on their website. In motion the game is smooth as silk, and the battles look epic indeed. I'm curious to find out more about how the game plays (using just the nunchuck attachment seems a bit weird), but until then I can definitely say my interest has been piqued.
