Strong Bad's Game Seeks WiiWare Approval

By Jorge Ba-oh 28.07.2008 3

Telltale have revealed that Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People won't make its way to the WiiWare catalogue in July, but will be available soon.

The developer originally aimed to publish their episodic adventure on Nintendo's virtual catalogue during July 2008, after a short delay, but due to Nintendo needing to approve the release it seems the July timeframe can't be met.

Telltale's forum representative recently posted an apology message:

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the game is not coming out tomorrow.

What IGN said is true - we have submitted the game to Nintendo, and as soon as we get approval from them, it will be released quickly after that. We really are in the home stretch. We've been waiting to announce a release date until we have that approval, though, because until that happens, well, anything can happen! Getting games into WiiWare is a new process for us and we're learning as we go, so I'm sorry if any of you are disappointed that tomorrow is the last Monday in July and you won't have a Strong Bad game to play. On the plus side, we're closer now than we've ever been, and very soon we should be able to tell you exactly when it's coming out!

Also, I'd like to preemptively say that contrary to some comments I've seen people making here and there, Nintendo has NOT been sitting on the game for months. We were still working on getting some bugs fixed until fairly recently. So please don't assume that they're some evil empire that's been hoarding the game since June because they don't want you to have it. Everyone we're working with at Nintendo wants the game to come out just as badly as we (and you!) do.

Thanks to GoNintendo for the tip.

Hm? I thought the whole season was coming out as a full Wii game.

And what about SBCG4AP, is it the same case with that?

Sorry jb, but that story is for the StrongBad Wiiware title, Sam & Max will be retail.

Hold on, I'll fix it.

Ah that makes sense now. I was wondering where SBCG4AP was.
