Another Western developer has signed on to make Wii games-- hopefully they can get the funding to make some original ones. WayForward
mostly makes licensed stuff these days, of undetermined quality (we haven't had a chance to test GBA Unfabulous
), but they are also responsible for the excellent Game Boy Color platformer Shantae
and the clever GBA shooter Sigma Star Saga.
Also Ping Pals,
but let's not talk about that.
WayForward has actually had a Wii development kit since last year (they got access to some early pre-release duct tape
) and they've been doing research and development since then. We know the licenses are coming, but we're really hoping that WayForward will have the time and resources to do some original stuff too.
