Sega has announced the release of a new game for the Wii console that involves a tapping control system, reports CasualGaming.biz.
Sonic The Hedgehog creator Yuji Naka is behind Let's Tap, which includes five different game modes played by tapping close to the Wii Remote.
Having been released in Japan during December last year, the game will now be launched in North America and Europe in the summer.
Sega's senior product manager Jo Fawell claimed that the game has a minimalistic design in order to remove any "barriers to entry".
She explained that the tap-controlled mini games start at an easy entry level but "gain complexity" as the player moves through various modes.
Packaged with "two tap boxes", the title also features multiplayer options and is particularly focused towards "family, housewives and kids".
Fawell pointed out that Let's Tap was awarded best Nintendo Wii game during the Tokyo Game Show last year.
