Nelson Tethers Puzzle Agent on Wii No More

Nelson Tethers Puzzle Agent on Wii No More on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Telltale Games has confirmed to Cubed3 that Puzzle Agent for WiiWare has now been shelved. Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent was meant to be the next big hit on WiiWare from the 'Kings of Episodic Gaming,' following on from the massive success of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and Tales of Monkey Island.

Back in May 2010 it was revealed that in conjunction with artist Graham Annable, Puzzle Agent would be the first in a series of 'Pilot Program' games that brought quirky puzzle adventures to the world. Unfortunately, every other planned edition of the intriguing adventure has been released, with the exception of the Wii iteration. Now any hope of it ever appearing has been officially dashed:

We're always looking to get our titles on as many platforms as we can, but currently have no plans for a Puzzle Agent release on the Wii.
- Alan Johnson, Manager of Public Relations and Social Media at Telltale Games.

Have you played Puzzle Agent on any other format? Are you disappointed it is no longer coming to Wii / WiiWare?

Puzzle what?

I was really looking forward to this, but ended up getting it for my iPhone...and then never playing it because I can't stand playing games on my iPhone! Smilie

Maybe it will eventually come to 3DS...Here's hoping, anyway.

It's a little like Layton, so if you like that, you'd love this.

That's too bad since Wii only owners are missing on a very fun point and click game. I own it on PC and PS3 (since I got to review it for another site) and had a blast playing it twice.

we're already up to puzzle agent 2 soon already, little late anyway, infact i didnt even know they planned a wii release to begin with. Its a really good game though.
