A new line-up of titles has appeared on Capcom’s press site, essentially confirming the titles shown at CAPTIVAT08. Perhaps the most disappointing is the Wii’s lineup. I mean, Neopets?!

Protöthea

Both Microsoft and Sony have had rumored Wiimote lookalikes in development for quite some time. Although not nearly identical, the sixaxis PS3 controller is the closest thing to the Wii remote. Sony may be pushing its motion control further, as a new rumor has surfaced. Allegedly, a number of PS3 owners were taken to an undisclosed location in California, in which the participants were able to try out a new PS3 controller (which is very close to that of the Wiimote.) At the event, games like tennis and paintball were up for testing, in addition to a modified version of Quake on someone’s laptop. However, the PS3 controller is far from complete, as one downside it was its usage of a tripod and many issues need to be hammered out.

Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party seems to be changing slightly. The game itself is more focused, Rayman himself is taking a backseat, and the gameplay will be more oriented to balance board minigames. An additional modification for TV Party is its graphics. Xavier Poix, Studio Director of Ubisoft Montpellier noted, “We’ve made a huge step in terms of graphics – we’ve used a new engine and we totally understand the Wii now, so I think we’ve pushed them to the maximum. Plus, obviously we’ve got this huge range of motions and control options now, including using the Wii Board with your backside.”

So, how good will the graphics look in this title? No games from Ubisoft have been too impressive on the graphical front, so hopefully TV Party will be able to change the opinions people have about Ubisoft graphics in general.

Capcom’s exclusive event, CAPTIVATE08 took place last week. No news from the event was reported, as an embargo was in place. The restriction will be lifted tomorrow, however, at 8 AM EST. Pray for some Nintendo news from the event – Perhaps we’ll hear of Lost Planet or Bionic Commando Wii?!

“Hard-core gamers don’t like to buy the Wii because the Korean version can only play Korean version software titles, which so far are few. Many want to play popular Japanese titles. This is important because it is hard-core gamers who lead the gaming market trend.” – Jang Jae-heung, 30 year-old gamer

From what I hear, most of the Korean people purchase their Wii products through Japan. I can’t really blame them either, considering Korea will be seeing the games already released in other territories much later.
