Some special editions come with figurines, limited edition art books, or soundtrack CDs. This one comes with a baby.
With special editions now being the norm rather than the exception, they were bound to seep into family game territory someday. That day has arrived, and it’s more terrifying than anyone could have imagined. 505 Games’ Baby and Me Special Edition will come with an actual baby doll to attach a Wii remote to, which will make the doll seem to come alive through the controller’s speaker. Unfortunately, only Australians will get to experience the horror, with the game planned for release down under but in no other regions.
Baby and Me‘s regular edition will still come with a strap that can be used to hook the remote to other inanimate objects, such as baby-shaped logs, dead animals, or pictures of loved ones. According to Aussie Nintendo, here are the game’s features:
Your baby reacts by giggling, gurgling or crying through the Wii remote
Ten Baby Mode games including feed baby & send baby to sleep
Eight Play Mode games including rattle, catch, clap & balloons
Balance Board support: rock baby to sleep, burp baby, teach baby to walk
Customize baby with new clothes, accessories and playrooms
This game sounds really exciting, especially how you can “send baby to sleep” and play “clap.” When you’re using the Wii Balance Board to burp a baby, I think that’s the sign that you’ve lost your soul. Supposedly, you can also neglect your baby and have it grow up to be a subway janitor, but only if you have the Wii MotionPlus attached. So much for hoping that all of these baby games would go away; they’re only getting stronger.
