A pair of new Sesame Street games will come bundled with the cutest, furriest Wii Remote accessories we've ever seen, transforming the peripherals from hard plastic blocks into cuddly Cookie Monsters.
Later this Fall, Warner Bros. will be releasing Elmo's A-to-Zoo Adventure and Sesame Street: Cookie's Counting Carnival. They'll probably be forgettable Wii edutainment/shovelware, but we don't care about the games. We care about those Wii Remote covers that are shipping with them.
Their design is two-fold: one is to encourage small kids to use the Wii Remote by making it cuter and snugglier, and the other is to make playing the game easier by obscuring most of the "unnecessary" buttons that the games don't make use of.
Not sure the Wii needed much more simplification, even for small kids, but damn I want one of those Cookie Monster covers.
