Rare has not truly supported a Nintendo console since the N64 era, although it is possible that the Wii could be receiving support from the company in the near future. When asked about the possibility of Viva Pinata on Wii, Rare’s Gary Richards provided an unexpected and cryptic answer by simply stating, “(Grins). I’m not saying.” Of course, this statement does not necessarily mean we’ll see Viva Pinata on Wii, or any other titles. However, if Rare does plan on releasing a Viva Pinata title for the Wii, perhaps the floodgates will open.

“We have two original IPs in development and some neat ideas with an existing IP. Most of that stuff is next-gen, but we’ll see as we move forward what turns into games and/or what goes in different directions.” – Ready At Dawn’s president, Didier Malenfant

Even though Okami is a port, it is still a game that required Ready At Dawn to gain some experience with the Wii hardware. Hopefully the team will have something in store for Wii owners in the future.

The absence of Final Fantasy Chrystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers does not seem too encouraging…I’d say that if we don’t hear any news about the title at E3, the project is as good as dead.

An official press release has been distributed regarding The Conduit. According to the release, the game will be launching in Q1 2009. It also seems that the game has a publisher, although this is not completely confirmed.

High Voltage Software’s The Conduit is a stunning first-person action shooter that promises to provide some of the best visuals seen to date on Nintendo’s Wii gaming console.

Using their proprietary Quantum 3 Game Engine technology, the team at High Voltage Software is fusing fast and fluid gameplay with an advanced set of visuals intended to squarely establish the Wii as a true next-generation gaming platform. The first-person shooter boasts a competitive online multiplayer component and a thrilling single-player campaign. Advanced graphical features include dynamic environment mapping, interactive water with real-time reflection, and four-stage texture composition including gloss, diffuse, and bump mapping.

“Too many Wii owners have been told that the Wii is a casual platform with no room for serious games or top-tier graphics,” said Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage Software. “With The Conduit, we intend to prove that theory wrong by providing gamers with the kind of title they imagined back when the platform was first announced.”
