Following on from Sony’s successful showing at TGS last month and Microsoft’s equally successful X06 event in Barcelona last week, it’s nice to be able to sit down on a Monday morning and remind you of the latest news from the third contender in the next/new-gen race. Read on for all the latest news (with trailers) on some of the hottest Wii features and titles in development – Zelda, Wario, the Virtual Console plus, from the team that brought you Killer 7, the awesome-looking Heroes.
One of SPOnG’s most anticipated Wii titles - after Zelda - is the manic micro-gaming genius that is Wario Ware: Smooth Moves. While it doesn’t look like we’ll be playing Smooth Moves till early 2007, we’re still eager to see the final version. You can read our initial preview on Wario's first Wii outing on SPOnG to get a flavour of what’s in store.
You might also want to check out this handy trailer that’s just gone up, courtesy of GT TV, which gives a good idea of how the game plays (ie incredibly easy to pick up, dastardly difficult to put down).
Next up, also courtesty of GT TV, there's a peek at the Wii’s Virtual Console which, with a back catalogue of games to die for, is surely going to give Xbox Live Arcade a serious run for its money in the casual/retro download arena.
And there’s more. SPOnG first heard about the new Wii title Heroes last week, and while details are still scarce, we can tell you that it is being developed by Grasshopper Studio/Marvelous Interactive (and being overseen by Suda 51, the Killer 7 guy). We can also direct you here to see the jaw-droppingly good trailer on Project Heroes which gives you a pretty good idea of what the game’s about.
If you like Manga and loud rock and roll, plus having massive shiny weapons for arms, then this is one for you. Best line in the trailer: “Your shining armour and fine words won’t get you anywhere!”. Quite.
Last, but by nowhere near least, there’s the full seven minute Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess trailer which of course, is a must see if you haven’t yet swooned over it. The montage trailer contains all you need to see, from fishing to boss battles. Fill yer boots.
Roll on Vee-Wii Day on December 8.
