PostSubject: 11th Doc to shout both 'Geronimo!' and 'WII!'   Fri Mar 12, 2010 3:16 am

Much as I hate to cite the Sun as a source, here it is:

Quote :
Nintendo has agreed a contract said to be worth over 10 million to create the
much-anticipated game for its popular Wii and DS consoles. And the firm is planning to get it into shops in time for the lucrative
Christmas market.

Quote :
"We're delighted to have finally nailed down a deal. We went with Nintendo as
they have huge appeal for families and Doctor Who is very much a family
brand. "The Wii console is key for us as it's something families play together."

Quote :
The game will be closely monitored by the BBC, which does not want anything
too violent. Former Doctor David Tennant said the game had struggled to get off the ground
as some developers had wanted the Time Lord to beat up his enemies and blow
things up.
Hello! Wii remote = sonic screwdriver. DUH. It was a struggle to make THAT connection?

I'm excited by the prospect that Nintendo is working directly on this as a first-party title; I've got a Wii and several games, and naturally Nintendo has a better grasp than most other developers of how to do a decent game on the Wii. The first-party titles are always the best on this particular machine.

I just hope they don't forget to make it available on this continent!

FRAK! Now I have to buy a Wii, a machine I previously had ZERO interest in buying...much like God of War III has forced me to buy a PS3.

I hate games consoles unless I've watched an action movie within the same 2 hours, then I wanna jump on a game like CoD and destroy everyone I see.

Unfortunately, unless they release a US version of the Wii game, it won't work over here. This was the problem with the Wii Top Trumps Doctor Who game.

So here's a question for those pondering the future of Doctor Who as a video game/computer game property:

Could the Doctor Who universe have MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) potential? Discuss.

That is interesting. Probably not with any of the Doctors or companions but perhaps with civilizations he/they have saved. Could have plenty of the baddies though. I'd definitely be on board for something like this Smile
