When Nintendo revealed the Wii, there was no doubt that many people were shocked by it. While in its last generation, the GameCube could really hold its own in the graphics department, the focus was changed for Nintendo’s latest. Instead of graphics, the Big N explained, the focus should be on gameplay. And, while many people may still scoff at that idea, those of you still unconvinced need look no further than the surprise success of the LEGO Star Wars franchise, which is comprised of two very fun games whose only real improvement on the Xbox 360 happened to be really shiny floors.
All in all, LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy exemplify what the Nintendo Wii stands for, which really makes this news even better: According to Nintendo-specific site Codename Revolution, both LEGO Star Wars games are headed to the Nintendo Wii, complete with controls reinvented specifically for the Wii Remote (which, really, shouldn’t be too hard, as the game only used like two buttons). And, what’s more, when (or “if,” depending on how skeptical you are) the titles hit this Christmas, they will be packaged together as LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga!
Codename Revolution also claims that its source (a distributor) revealed a few more previously unannounced Wii games in the works in addition to LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, including the sequel to Thrillville and a billiards game from South Peak Interactive titled Pool Party. Of course, even though Codename Revolution stands by the information, we at VGGEN must advise you to take this with a grain of salt for the moment, as we cannot confirm any of it just yet. As always, we will continue to look into these apparently upcoming Wii games, and if we learn anything more, you’ll see it right here. So, be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
