“I’m not in a position to be able to confirm or deny any kinds of sequels, but I will point that there will probably be at least five seasons of the Clone Wars. [You] do the math. I think we were all finding out what the Clone Wars was about when we made the game. It was a journey for all of us. Now that we’ve done that, we understand the show and know where it can go, it would be fantastic to do a second one now, knowing what we do. But that’s always going to be true of every game you make.” – project lead Feargus Carroll

WiiWare a bust for some companies?

Posted on 9 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 1 Comment | 0 Likes

“I overheard at TGS that WiiWare is a bust for a lot of third-parties…sales in the hundreds.” – Shane Bettenhausen, 1up editor

Wow, I’m not too sure why, but it’s difficult to imagine a title selling that poorly. On the other hand, I’m sure you guys could agree that there are some low-quality titles on the service. I’m sure that for some games are experiencing more than average sales figures such as Mega Man 9.

Project H.A.M.M.E.R. has had an interesting development cycle, to say the least. Nintendo first unveiled the title way back at E3 2006, stating that it would be an original IP that the company would bring to Wii. Since then, there’s been murmurs that the game was canned. Then in May, NGamer said the title was still alive and was being worked on. Shigeru Miyamoto, however, recently responded when asked about the game. Here’s his take:

“[says he is not part of the development team and really cannot comment] (…) What I can confirm here is that only when Nintendo can become almost certain of the timing of the launch we are able to make the relevant launch announcement of the software.”

Miyamoto also commented on 3D gaming devices. Perhaps surprisingly, he would not be thrilled with such a device if “goggle-style” gear was needed to be worn by the player.

“Nintendo is always trying to construct the framework in which we can provide… we can be as creative as possible in order to create as new entertainment as possible. And that’s what Nintendo has been striving at and that’s what Nintendo will be challenging itself once again in order to make unique entertainment opportunity. But if I can just add my personal opinion: if the new environment requires the player to wear some goggle-style, I really don’t have a good impression of that.”
