I was debating whether or not to post this, since it seems like this game won’t be heading to Wii. Nothing is confirmed yet, but Ken Ballough from SEGA stated in an interview that “You can definitely expect HD graphics.” I’m still hoping that this will head to the Wii, though I wouldn’t count on it at this point.

Thanks to jcr for the news tip!

“We think DSiWare, in common with all digital distribution, is great. It allows developers like us to make innovations which would otherwise be more difficult to bring to market. At Frontier we are fortunate in that we have been able to fund the LostWinds projects ourselves and therefore retain complete creative control, which is a fantastic experience.

The challenge currently for all involved is to get the awareness / acceptance of the various digital distribution services as high as retail disc / cartridge.

When we’ve finished Winter of the Melodias, the team will sit down and plan / prioritise which of the many directions we can go with LostWinds next. DSiWare is an option that could be in the mix.” – avid Braben, founder and chief executive officer of Frontier Interactive

I think I’d like to see LostWinds or DSiWare, or at the very least, I’d like to see the developers try it! I suppose it all depends on how successfully the franchise could translate to the DS.


When comparing Red Steel and its sequel, it’s quite clear that the second title has gone through a massive overhaul. This is, of course, partially a result of the technology behind Wii MotionPlus. But perhaps the series will see another evolution by the time the next game is ready for development. At PAX 2009, Red Steel 2 creative director Jason VandenBerghe made a few remarks about bringing Red Steel to other platforms. Although the decision will ultimately be up to Ubisoft, VandenBerghe seemed thrilled with the idea.

“I will be pushing to make that happen (placing Red Steel on other platforms).”

“I personally would love to see any and all consoles have more sword fighting experiences.”

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – September 8, 2009 – GameMill Entertainment today announced Cruise Ship Vacation Games. Set to release in September for Wii™, the game is a celebration of what the system can do.

Embark on one of three cruise ships and begin enjoying mini golf, driving range, shuffleboard, ping pong, rock climbing, and casino games, all utilizing enhanced Wii MotionPlus™ controls. In addition there is trap shooting, which supports the use of the Wii Zapper™ accessory. Never before has there been so many kinds of games in one package, and you’ve never played them like this – the added precision control and peripheral integration draws the players further into the game for a more fresh, realistic experience.

There’s have been some considerably significant announcements made at October’s events in the past. Monster Hunter 3, Punch-Out!! and even the DSi made their debuts at the show. Now will Zelda Wii be following suit? A rumor has popped up concerning Link’s next adventure: Specifically that the first trailer of the title will be shown. Interestingly, Nintendo has yet to actually confirm their annual conference, but you can bet that there will be one this year. And who knows, maybe this rumor will hold true and we’ll finally see what the next Zelda title looks like on Wii.

Thanks to Jake for the news tip!
