Picto Image (DS) – September
Sonic Chronicles (DS) – September
Sonic Unleashed (Wii) – November
MadWorld (Wii) – Q1 2009

– KOTOR 3 (An MMO, and a joint project between Lucasarts and BioWare)
– Battlefront 3
– “The Official Indiana Jones” game
– “another LEGO game based on the Indy universe”
– “a lightsaber game for the wii (sorry, no lightsaber peripherals)”

This list apparently comes from an previous employee of LucasArts. Out of everything on that list, a lightsaber game and a new LEGO Indiana Jones title seem the most probably for Wii.



– Main characters: Rikimaru and Ayame
– Story: set one year after the riots caused by the Witchcraft Lord “Tenrai”. There are still some evil people behind the scenes that are causing trouble, and gaining in power. There was also an incident involving the kidnapping of princess Kiku (Lord Gouda Matsunoshin’s daughter). Rikimaru and Ayame must find out what is going on with these happenings.
– “Stealth Ninja Action Game”
– developers are saying that this could be the ‘epitome of the series’
– new character designs
– new actors
– both characters have different fighting styles, and “assassination cutscenes”.
– Stealth actions: hide in water, climb on ceilings, sneak around above the ceiling, hide in the dark, hide bodies, hide within caravans to sneak into heavily guarded locations, and more moves completely new to the series
– special move allows you to quickly dispose of a body into water, effectively hiding the corpse
– ninja tools from previous entries return, and have been reworked for Wiimote/Nunchuk control
– may be updated on June 7th with info

Interestingly enough, Ubisoft will be handling the publishing for Tenchu. Ubisoft isn’t developing the title, but I do think the company deserves a bit of praise for picking up this title. It is also known now that two other games are planned for the future.

Rock Band 2 hasn’t even been released for the Wii yet, but details on Rock Band 2 have popped up…

“Rock Band 2 lets you and your friends play as a virtual 4-person band, in person or online, to rock out to some of the biggest rock anthems from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s. Rock Band 2 will be a full featured sequel, similar to full featured sequels you see released by other big video game franchises, such as Need for Speed, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Call of Duty, or Halo. In the music/rhythm genre, it is similar to the feature jumps made from Guitar Hero I to Guitar Hero II or Guitar Hero II to Guitar Hero III.”

Two days ago, we told you that Badger Comics had put up a list of “key selling points” which hinted at a Castlevania on Wii. Konami has put in a request for the information to be taken down, however. A Badger Comics representative explained, “Well guys’ FWIW I have been contacted by both Konami AND Tokyopop asking me to remove the key selling points from the Castlevania manga listing. Don’t know exactly what it means, and was just told “the information was not meant to be released to the general public” This seems to insinuate that either a Castlevania title is indeed in the works for the Wii, or Konami simply did not want incorrect information posted.



Numerous control options have become a staple of Nintendo published games. Mario Super Sluggers will follow in the same direction with the ability to use the Wiimote (held in the usual way), Wiimote + nunchuck, or just the Wii controller flipped on its side.
