LostWinds™ is an enchanting adventure bursting with new gameplay ideas that embrace the innovative controller of the Wii™ - it puts “the power of the wind in the palm of your hand”.
You wield the awesome powers of Enril the wind spirit - from raging tornados to the gentlest breeze – to guide and protect Toku, a young boy who is the only one who can help you release the curse placed upon the world of Mistralis by evil Balasar. Mistralis is a stunningly presented, magical land full of wonder and intrigue that bursts to life with your every action and exploration.
The game’s novel, playful control mechanism lets you use Enril’s elemental powers to help Toku in your quest to overcome Balasar – powering his jumps and glides through Mistralis’ different regions, buffeting and smashing enemies, and solving puzzles.
LostWinds is available to purchase now, exclusively via WiiWare on your Nintendo Wii for 1000 Wii Points.

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is the follow up to 2008’s best-selling, award-winning WiiWare™ launch title ‘LostWinds’.
In this new adventure players are able to instantly transform Mistralis between Summer and Winter, harnessing the brilliance of nature: frozen Winter ponds and waterfalls become deep, teeming Summer pools and chambers in which to dive and unlock secrets, enemies can be frozen or doused, and the very air itself used to form snowballs or moisture-laden clouds. Other amazing new abilities include the cyclone, which can be used to transport Toku, smash powerful enemies and even drill through the rocks of the Mistralis’ diverse, richly interactive Chilling Peaks and Melodia City areas
LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is available to download directly exclusively via Nintendo’s WiiWare service now. Visit the LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias Website for more information including videos, screenshots and game features.
Some of the gaming media's reactions to LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias:
“With satisfyingly challenging puzzles expertly woven between engaging platforming and a thoroughly charming narrative, Winter of the Melodias represents an essential purchase. It's not simply the best WiiWare title on the market, but one of the best Wii games full stop.”
9.1/10 IGN Editor's Choice
"The 100th WiiWare title in the UK, Winter of the Melodias is one of its best, too. A few hours longer than the first game, Frontier's sequel is also a lot more complex and dynamic, and yet it's managed to retain the same unforced charm."
"It is without a doubt the best-looking WiiWare game yet, and you will be blown away by how good some sections look."
9/10 Nintendo Life
