Endless Ocean 2 - Wii: New details

The E3 conference in Los Angeles has played host to dozens of games since Monday, and it's a bit of a shame that Endless Ocean 2 seems to have been pushed into the background by some of the more established titles on show.

Still, here's what we know: There is a constant story running through this sequel, involving locating the fabled Dragon Stone. However, it appears you can still dive into the big blue and explore at your leisure.

Your dolphn companion joins you again on this trip, but this time you'll be able to grab on and use the dolphin to propel you through the water.

It also appears that certaain creatures pose a threat to your diver - quite a departure from the first game, where the experience was very laid back.

Another big change is the ability to explore fresh water rivers, while the graphics engine has been given an extra layer of polish.

The game is scheduled for a 2010 release, but there is no word exactly when Endless Ocean will launch in Europe.

In the meantime, kick back and feast your eyes on this gorgeous trailer.
