Yuji Naka, the creator behind Sonic the Hedgehog and more recently Rodea the Sky Soldier, has tweeted that he recommends playing the Wii version of the game over the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS version. While it is unclear why, Eurogamer suggests it’s because the Wii Remote and Nunchuck are perfectly suited to the game. Rodea The Sky Soldier is released today in North America and you can watch the launch trailer for the game, below.
Video game sleuth Liam Robertson has discovered that Nintendo was planning to develop a new Wave Race title for the Wii. NST engineer, Yoon Joon Lee, and designer, Rich Vorodi were the brains behind the title and had previous experience with Wave Race: Blue Storm on the GameCube. The game was set to be controlled by the Wii Remote turned on its side to represent the handle bars, but there were other control schemes being discussed internally. The game would also have used the same visual and water physics as the previous Wave Race title on the GameCube. However, once the game was pitched, the higher-ups at Nintendo took issue with the control system and it was scrapped. Some of the ideas the team had were later merged into the immensely popular Wii Sports Resort on the Wii.
Famitsu is reporting that SEGA is currently removing Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 from the Wii Virtual Console. The reason for the removal is unknown and we also don’t know if it’s just happening in Japan. However, the games will disappear from the Wii Virtual Console and Xbox Live Arcade on October 30th.
