Rygar on Wii doesn’t seem to be dead. New screenshots of the port surfaced a few days back which gives a pretty good indication that Tecmo hasn’t abandoned the project. What about the long delay, though? 1UP’s James Mielke has written a blog post which explains why Rygar has not already been released on the Wii. Believe it or not, the port has given Tecmo huge trouble. The company essentially had to retool the entire project after initial “disastrous results.”

“But both companies [Koei and Tecmo] are legendary for their cheapness (see: Tecmo’s repurposing of a 5 year-old PS2 game — Rygar — as a $500,000 quickie port to the Wii, a project which proved so disastrous and unportable that Tecmo had to go back to the drawing board with it, at nearly three times the cost of what they were trying to achieve in the first place).”

“We are talking with quite a few companies in and outside of Japan. We are routinely in such talks.” – Square Enix president Yoichi Wada

Liight is a puzzle solving game where the pieces are colored lights and the goal is to make cool music! Anyone can play! Just illuminate all the targets in each puzzle with light of the matching color… but it’s not always so easy! You’ll have to mix colors, cast shadows and make the most of your limited resources to solve these brain teasers. Solve 100 challenging puzzles! Create your own puzzles, and Share them with your friends via WiiConnect24. Host a Contest to see who can solve your puzzle the fastest. If you’re ready, take on Nonstop mode, a whole new way to play where arcade-style scoring meets split-second strategy!

So there you have it! With Liight, we wanted to hit a halfway point between casual and core games, and I think it’s coming out right on the money. The core puzzle solving gameplay is tight, and everyone who played the prototype had a lot fun. Anyone really can play it, I showed it on an airplane to a lady who had never played a video game before, and even she was enjoying the easier puzzles. Thats not to say it’s not fun for real gamers though. Nonstop mode can get pretty hardcore as far as gameplay goes. I’m looking forward to playing it myself, actually. You know like, on something other than a dev-kit, where my score actually counts.

For the record, you can pronounce it anyway you want. I just say it like “light”, but I think “leet” is ok, too.
