Yuji Naka, original creator of Sonic the Hedgehog, and his new studio Prope have a new Wii game on the way to North America and Europe this summer, Sega announced today. The game is called Let’s Tap, and it sounds really quite innovative.

Let’s Tap puts the Wii motion control design to use in ways you’ve never seen before. The main functionality of the game requires the remote to be placed on a box or other flat surface, and from there players tap on said surface to interact with the game as the Wii Remote senses the surrounding vibrations. This unique control scheme will be put to use in five play modes’ worth of various finger-tapping mini-games and activities.

“Let’s Tap represents innovation and a departure from any preconceived notion of how video games are to be played,” says Sean Ratcliffe, VP of Marketing at SEGA of America. “Naka san is one of the video game industry’s creative luminaries. This game is his newest creation and we are excited to be able to expose the gamers in North America to something fresh and different from anything they’ve played before.”
