Nintendo News | Gearbox Software Does Wii

By Jorge Ba-oh 27.07.2006 2

According to IGN, another large third party developer has promised support for Nintendo's increasingly popular Wii. Gearbox Software, best known for Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 (PS2/Xbox), are now set to develop titles for the Wii.

"Gearbox Software is enthusiastically supporting the Wii. At this time, we don't have any announcements to make about specific games we may be developing for Wii. I think it's (Wii) great. I'm very much looking forward to playing.

The strengths of the Nintendo Wii include the price, the unique interface, the sure-bet library of games based on the great Nintendo properties and the promise back catalogue of classic games from Nintendo and others that they have partnered with.

The weaknesses of the system include its lower relative power when compared to other next-gen consoles and the unique interface requiring more dedicated focus specifically for the platform (which makes it more difficult to amortize larger AAA budgets across more customers from multiple platforms)."
Randy Pitchford, Company President

This could provide some confirmation on the supposed leaked Ubisoft release calendar that hit the web several months ago that listed the Brothers in Arms making a Wii appearance.

Stay tuned for any developments.

This great news i hope the Wii will get more of the call of duty brothers in arms and ghost recon games, most of these games were sorley missed witht the GameCube

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clichť. They were the statement and the definition."
