SEGA officially revealed its Leipzig lineup through a press release last week, but one particular enigma that was included pertains to a “world exclusive.” In the same press release, SEGA said that gamers can expect the unannounced game to be present at this year’s Leipzig. However, some of the specifics are beginning to narrow, as information shows that the new title is a Wii game.

Does anyone have a guess as to what the game could be? I’m still going for that new Sonic-controlled balance board game…(Just kidding!)

Igor Games to Be Released in Europe on PC, Nintendo DSTM and WiiTM

Deep Silver, the game label of Koch Media, and Interactive Game Group, LLC (I2G), an-nounce that they will publish the game Igor for the PC, Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ in the European PAL territories, the French overseas territories, the Commonwealth of Independ-ent States, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.

The Igor videogames are produced by I2G and Legacy Interactive. They are based on the animated movie of the same title by Exodus Film Group, distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. “Igor” opens in the United States on September 19, 2008 and features the voice talents of artists such as John Cusack, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Jay Leno and Christian Slater. The movie will benefit from a worldwide distribution for the Holidays of 2008.

There have been rumors for months that the next Tony Hawk Game would use an accelerometer or some sort of motion control. Well, this looks to be like a pretty clear indication that we can expect something in that manner. I kind of hope that the name is changed, though!

“There’s no ‘percentage chance’ that I could give you [Viewtiful Joe this generation] that would at all be accurate. If it strikes someone of influence (a producer of note, Inafune, Takeuchi, perhaps even me) that it’s something that has potential (both gameplay and sales) then it could happen. If not, it won’t. I can’t predict who might or might not see that potential.” – Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

The first Viewtiful Joe game was produced by the folks at Capcom, but the other titles in the series were created by Clover Studios (which has partially become Platinum Games.) Atsushi Inaba oversaw the development of all the Viewtiful Joe titles and is currently working for Platinum Games, so I suppose someone else would need to take the helm of development in the future.

The Conduit is shaping up to be the total third-party Wii package. The graphics, gameplay, and controls are all nailed down. Oh, and don’t forget online play. High Voltage Software is doing its best to deliver the best online experience, but is also interested in adding LAN play in the game. Speaking with 4 color rebellion, High Voltage Software’s Eric Nofsinger explained, “Our plan is to deliver a solid multiplayer experience both online and LAN.” You might also be interested in knowing that The Conduit was influenced by the likes of Halo and Golden Eye – two very huge and revered games!
