Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Sr. Director of Strategic Planning & Research has been providing Nintendo fans with tons of details about the company and possible upcoming details the past few weeks. Today was no exception, as Svensson once again divulged quite a bit of new information. First, some of you may remember Dead Phoenix, a game that Capcom showed off for the GameCube years ago. The game drew many comparisons to Kid Icarus, but eventually, the game slid under the radar and was canned. A good portion of the gaming community hoped for the revival of the game, perhaps by partially remolding the game as we knew it. Unfortunately, it looks like not even this is possible. Said Svensson, “As far as CEI resurrecting it, frankly, we have enough things on our plate at the moment and enough ideas in the pipeline that we don’t need to be going back to that well.”

Additionally, we found out a few months back that Monster Hunter 3 was canceled for the PS3 and moved to Wii. The main reason that we heard about seemed to be relate to high development costs of creating a PS3 title, yet Svenson has noted, “It was a strategic decision set by the team and our Japanese management to address an emerging market on the Wii. At the time the decision was made, it was in reference to the Wii market in general, no particular sub-segement thereof.” So, the idea of saving money was definitely a motivating factor, but the fact that the Wii has been a dominant force in the gaming market seemed to influence the decision significantly, too.

The last bit of information concerns Dead Rising. Many fans of the game were enamored with the game since literally everything in the environment is capable of becoming a tool for destruction. Don’t get any quick ideas that the game will be coming to the Wii, however. Unlike Okami, there are no plans for a Dead Rising remake for the Wii (or any news on the game at all for that matter). Although, it is interesting to know that there would be no legal issues with releasing Dead Rising on a different platform, as Christian Svensson explained on the Capcom community forums.

“There is a chance; we love all the games we work on. We don’t want to be pigeon-holed [into a genre], we want to be known for strong content…There’s a strong chance we’ll return to it, but there’s no announcements yet.” – Denis Dyack,Silicon Knights

How well has Brawl really sold?

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


The graph depicted above is showing the total sales for the original Super Smash Bros. and it’s sequel, Super Smash Bros. Melee; while, on the other hand, Brawl’s portion of the graph is referring only to its sales in March. Super Smash Bros. Brawl managed to completely outsell the life-to-date sales of the first Smash game, and took a chunk (70%) of Melee’s total sales as well.

At this rate, it’s extremely possible – actually probable – that Brawl will be the best selling game on the Wii.
