Mushroom Men trailer

Posted 11 years ago by in News, Wii | 0 comments

I must admit…Mushroom Men is turning out to look like one of the better third-party offerings on the Wii.

This comes from a job posting over at EA…

“Come join the team that created BOOM BLOX, here at Electronic Arts Los Angeles!…[We’re] creating accessible, quick-to-the-fun games for all ages on the Nintendo Wii…Interest or experience with physics gameplay a plus!”

Even though Boom Blox has not exactly been the sales gem EA had probably hoped for, the Boom Blox team will continue work on the Wii. We could see Boom Blox 2 (based on the “physics” part of the job description), or something entirely new.

Nintendo is continuing with the Mario Kart Wii tournaments, this time dealing with the Twilight House. Although the map isn’t original (it’s one of the battle maps), certain areas of the level are blocked off…And keep in mind, this is with 12 player insanity. The tournament will start on July 15 and end July 25.

Flock! is, more or less, as the title suggests. It’s basically a UFO-catching sheep game, but…The game isn’t coming to the Wii. Flock will be heading to the PSN, PC and XBLA, although as you’ve probably already guessed, this isn’t Capcom’s secret Wii game. However, NGamer still referred to Capcom’s mystery Wii title in their latest issue, so I would expect some sort of announcement at E3. I’m quite curious to know what Capcom’s “surprising taking on a next-gen game” is already!
