Reggie promises big Wii game for 2008



Nintendo of America president Reginald Fils-Aime has promised a big title coming to Wii this year, speaking to GameTrailers.

In the video interview, he promises a large line-up for the second half of the year with more news to be announced at E3. Reggie then teases one unannounced title in particular.

We´re gonna have great new content, maximizing all of our key franchises. It´s gonna be a good second half. (...) There´s gonna be a big game for the holiday that the gamers will want, this holiday. (...) The gamers are gonna be excited and the expanded audience is gonna be excited.

The so-called ´E3 Media & Business Summit´ will begin on the 15th of July this year.


On a more personal note, I apologize for the lack of updates. Please bear with me. I will publish my promised in-depth article on ´Crossbeam Studios´ in the next few days. It will be worth your while, I am sure.

-no bloody Wii new for weeks other than good bully reviews and lowrez mariokart extravaganza......

- I bought zack and wiiki: the story is lame the gameplay top and the graphics beautiful. Its also quite challenging. It would probably be too hard for people like Grandmaster bitch. But definitely recommended. Best Wii game so far.

- Mario Kart Wii looks worse than Mario Kart Gamcube but I realize its due to the courses being vastly bigger in scope. And after thinking about it for some time I figure I'm fine with that as Wii doesn't have enough rendering muscle which is pretty sad. I love the graphics to look good. Great looking graphics are very tasty.


- I was happy when I saw scans of Sky Crawlers a new flightsimulation game for Wii today. I was even more happy when I read that it was being developed by the same team that is responsible for the Ace Combat series. And when I saw the shots I was super happy because they looked very good for Wii shots.
But after all this happyness I was pretty pissed off all of a sudden when I read that it was a game based on a japanese movie and that it most certainly woundn't see a release outside of Japan which is a big blow for gamers outside of Japan.


- The other day I learned that the price of the Xbox360 was being reduced to 199euro which made me happy considering that I don't own one eventough all the great games are on THAT console which is even more puzzling because it makes me wonder why I even bought a Wii in the first place to begin With. And 199 euro is even cheaper than Wii despite the hardware being vastly superior which must be pretty emberassing for Nintendo. And because Xbox 360 is so cheap now I will walk into a store and buy one with GTA4, Bioshock, Halo3 and Gears Of War which are all games that you cannot play on Wii because the hardware is not powerful enough to run them. And I will go home and play all these games in hirez and be very happy. And what makes me super happy is the fact that for the first time in years I won't regret my console choice because there are many great games on this console with great graphics and great gameplay to enjoy so I know I will be pleased.


- I finished reading a book the day before yesterday and it is called "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time" by an author called Mark (I foget his last name) and it was in english and I enjoyed it very much. It's a mystery murder novel. And its about a dog called Wellington who is being killed in the neighbours garden with a fork. And about a 15 year old boy called Christopher who lives alone with his father in Swinton which is north of london because his mother has died. But thats not the truth. And Christopher goes on a journey to find out who killed Wellington which leads him to his mother. And thats why this book is called the curious incident because it is a curious incident. It is a funny as well as a sad book. And it's dealing with a disociated mind because Chritopher has a disociated mind and he doesn't like being touched among other things he doesn't like or is afraid of. And he has Aspersen's syndrome and that's why he talks like that. And when I think about it I realize that's also how I talk so I guess I have the same problem as Christopher. But never mind its a good book.

- I will stop writing now because I'm tired now and I'm hungry and I want to get myself something to eat.

- I realize I forgot contributing to the the topic at hand here. And thats not good because falafelkid and particularly his blogsheriff Grandmaster B don't like people going off topic which is reasonable and sane when I think about it eventhough I don't always act like they want me to act. And because I'm sliding off again I will say something on topic right now:

- I hope it will be a new franchise with fresh characters and worlds. And I hope it will be targeted at older audiences becaused I think thats what Nintendo needs to prove because most of their games are very colourful and feature kiddy animal like creatures that make all sorts of strange highfrequency noises which used to scare me when I was still young but now I am older and the noises don't scare me anymore they just put me off. So I hope they will introduce some new franchises instead of sequels because there have been too many sequels already and thats sad.

i like the rumors flying around about it being a new kid icarus game developed by factor5. that sounds like sex in a bucket. i also like the rumor of retro bringing zelda into 1st person. a more oblivion-like zelda experience would be superb.

-"superfan" tactics.

I don't get my hopes up for such things. Reggie always over promisses and under delivers

Matt Cassamassina is confident that the title is Kid Icarus. Here is the podcast where he talks about Reggie's announcement:

@ials
Don't buy a 360. Buy a PS3...
360 is loud as hell, you have to pay for online gaming, it kills game discs and dies without a warning. It's shit! That's why it only costs 200 bucks...

@ anonymous, an entirely 1st person zelda would pretty much break everything that zelda represents. it wasfine for metroid, but I cringe just thinking about it for zelda.

I was thinkign kid icarus myself.. its pretty cool that its atleat a rumor.

Metaldave said...

Crossbeam Studios eh? Is this article going to be about how they are having trouble getting their games done, or if they are a real game developer? I haven't heard anything about them in so long I'm doubtful....

pero detlic said...

i think 1st person zelda could be very good...

i agree with ILAS on mario kart wii graphics... i was hoping that wii's graphic would be better with time, but this is just extra-lame.. mario kart wii looks so low-polygonal...

i don't want some super-realistic graphics, but come on, I WAS EXPECTING THEM TO BE BETTER THAN GAMECUBES!! at least..

starfox adventures, rogue squadron 2 and 3 and re4 are still unmatched by wii!! adventures and rogue were almost launch-titles for cube!!

oh, and cube could run galaxy and brawl almost just as wii...

ECC said...

meh??

HereticPB said...

Could be Icarus or something from N-Space.

GTA WII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WaffleKing said...

I doubt it'll actually ahppen though. Remember, Brawl was supposed to come out in December, and instead got delayed 3 months. Still, you never know...
*prays for zelda*

IALS,

Take care, because that 199 euro Xbox 360 doesn't have a hard drive (it has a 256 Mb memory card), requires extra cables or dongles to be able to access the internet, backwards-compatibility will be weak, it doesn't even come with component cables (which means that graphics will be limited to 576i, not good if you want the 360 for graphics).

My point, of course, is that the 199 euro Xbox 360 version may be cheaper than the Wii, but there are downsides to the system, too - no Wifi, smaller data storage, and incomplete backwards compatibility. Besides which, lack of component cables means you can't do HD, which is one of the 360's selling points.

My favorite Wii game is Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This is the best Wii game ever, in my opinion. I can't wait for Mario Kart Wii to be release release. I know it will be a smash hit. LOL.

I believe that it's a good line-up ... that all

Nintendo have some title plan title like kid icaru, Disaster: Day of Crisis, project hammer, Kirby and some more - witch we don't know when -

zelda is also possible (the zelda tp is port version form GC so it's about 3 year already)

I already confirm that ...

Tales of Symphonia 2
Fatal frame 4
Monster hunter 3

Is Wii "exclusive" And coming this year

Last year Wii have so-so 3rd party title line up. This year real deal is come.

This is an awesome pattern I just finished making the pocket, and I'm confused by the next step. Should I have already flipped the long back piece right side out? Thanks!
