Wii Game Powered by What You Search on Google
A new game for the Nintendo Wii soon to be available in Japan incorporates Google search queries.
The Wii is a great console for playing party games like Wii Sports and Think Fast. Soon Japanese gamers will be playing a new kind of game with the Wii, one that involves the popularity of certain Google search terms.
Siliconera reports that the quiz-like game, dubbed 'And Kensaku,' pulls 10,000 search terms using data from Google. Players then have to guess which terms are more popular in a variety of different games. In one game, whoever picks the phrase with the least amount of hits loses. In another, it's a race and your character runs faster when you pick trendier topics.
And Kensaku hits Japanese stores on April 29 for 4,800 yen ($52). No word on whether or not Nintendo is planning an international release.
