“We’ll see what we can do about Fragile, we’d love an opportunity to work on it but of course the final decision doesn’t rest with us. Afraid can’t share any details, but we’ll keep trying.” – Ken, XSEED Games

Right now I’m pretty concerned about the fate of Fragile in North America. I would love to see XSEED publish the game…Or anyone for that matter!

Reef Entertainment, the publisher responsible for Free Running, is proud to announce that Rogue Trooper®: Quartz Zone Massacre will be launched across Europe on Friday 27th February 2009.

Rogue Trooper®, a genetically engineered super-soldier from the pages of iconic UK sci-fi comic 2000 AD, represents Reef’s first foray onto the Nintendo Wii platform and promises to be one of the Wii’s most exciting and engaging 3rd person shooter titles yet.

Peter Rezon, managing director of Reef said, “We have high hopes for Rogue Trooper®. The tactical use of stealth as well as the all-out action fit perfectly with the Nintendo Wii interface, providing exciting and immersive gameplay. Rogue has a cult following from when he first appeared in 2000 AD and we have returned to the original storyline for the Wii version of the game to remind people how Rogue came about, but it is the strong characters and storyline which will have great appeal for gamers of all types. We believe this will become one of the very best shooter titles ever available on Nintendo Wii.”

In the letter, Nintendo mentions that the company “looks for relevant game development experience” in addition to looking “for secure business facilities, sufficient equipment and staffing, financial stability and other attributes that would distinguish the developer.”
