I’m not telling you which, but I’m working on one of those four games
Gameloft Set to Develop For WiiWare
March 27th, 2008
Gameloft®, a leading developer and publisher of video games for mobile phones, announced today it is developing a strong line-up for WiiWareTM, Nintendo’s new downloadable game service for the Wii systemTM.
With games set to launch in Europe, Unites States and Japan, Gameloft is planning a diverse line-up that consists of Block Breaker Deluxe, Midnight Pool, Midnight Bowling and TV Show King. Each game will either be completely original to WiiWare or vastly enhanced and redone for the platform. In addition, all the games are created to complement the Wii RemoteTM, a motion sensing controller which allows the player to interact with the screen.
“We are delighted to be working with Nintendo on the WiiWare,” said Michel Guillemot, president of Gameloft. “We have great confidence in the games that we are developing, several of which include award winning established brands and original creations specifically for WiiWare.”
Block Breaker Deluxe is the best selling brick-breaking game, over 8 million copies sold, that has been vastly enhanced and improved for WiiWare. The longest, most feature-rich brick-breaker game created, the game is easy to navigate by moving the Wii Remote left and right to shift the pad and connect with the ball.
TV Show King is an original game only available on WiiWare. The game takes on the role of a mock game show testing players general knowledge.
Midnight Pool and Midnight Bowling, are top sellers on the mobile platform, but have been completely redone with new features for WiiWare. For Midnight Pool, the Wii Remote is used as a cue and in Midnight Bowling it substitutes for the bowling motion.
Gameloft is a Nintendo Official Publisher in Europe and the United States .
