Publishers making the decision to port titles from the Wii to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is often considered to be an unusual occurrence. But rumor has it that Marvelous Entertainment has announced that the company will in fact be porting a Wii title to competing platforms. A shareholders meeting took place not too long ago and this information was discussed at the event. There is a possibility that the ported game might be a recent Wii release. If that’s true, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Arc Rise Fantasia, and even Reel Fishing: Angler’s Dream are potential titles that may end up no longer being exclusive to the Wii.

Earlier this year, we posted an unconfirmed report relating to EA and Activision products. Strangely, almost all of the rumors turned out to be true. Except for one: Brutual Legend on the Wii. The game seemed to be closer to being announced for Nintendo’s system with various sources claiming it was the real deal. Today, however, speculation has bubbled claiming that, although the title was in development for Wii at one point, it has since been canceled. Allegedly, there was some concern over the game’s quality and potential technical issues. So, following a good amount of speculation, it looks as though Wii owners will have to look elsewhere for their Brutal Legend Fix.

“As you’ve probably heard, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is kind of a big deal. Coming out of E3 Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has snagged tons of awards and nominations as Best Fighting Game, including the coveted Game Critics award. Now that you’ve had your turn, the public has its first chance to get its hands on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom at Anime Expo in Anaheim, Calif. this weekend. Expo attendees can visit Booth 437/439 to deal out a few billion damage points and perform amazing Hyper combos with the latest fighting game in Capcom’s Vs. series.” – Capcom

I’m not sure how many of you will be attending the Anime Expo this weekend, but you should definitely check out this game if you have some time to spare!

“We wanted to see ‘is there an audience out there that will play something completely different on the Wii?’. Commercially, we were not pleased with how it was received, but again, the critics loved it and that happens in this business sometimes…We don’t have a good post-mortem on [Deadly Creatures], but one of the key things that we can build on there is we have great — that was [developed by] one our internal studios, Rainbow Studios — and we have great Wii technology there now and so we’re developing other games — stay tuned for the announcements — but we intend to leverage that great technology on the Wii in the future.” – THQ CEO Brian Farrell

You know, I actually wasn’t expecting Deadly Creatures to be a commercial success and I’m sure I’m not the only one who felt that way. Deadly Creatures 2 probably isn’t in the cards for Wii at this point, but I’m interested in seeing the types of titles THQ/Rainbow Studios will create in the future.
