Snoopy swoops to Wii

Here's the debut trailer for Snoopy WWI Flying Ace, which appears to be a cross between a flight game and an on-foot action-platformer. Sure, the visuals lack the simple charm of Charles Schulz's original Peanuts strip, but this is no technical slouch: courtesy of an insider source, Go Nintendo's RMC reports that the Wii version features 480p visuals, 16:9 widescreen mode, and runs at 60 frames per second. There will be "important design differences" between this and the Xbox 360 versions, both of which release in early 2009.

Also, the trailer informs us that Snoopy is "popular with the mademoiselles" -- human ones. This revelation filled us with dread, because it reminded us of this.
