Platinum Games Scalebound Was Originally Destined for Wii

Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya has revealed in an interview with GameSpot that the promising Xbox One exclusive Scalebound was originally in development for the Wii. The game has apparently had a long development and was put on the back burner twice due to the company’s diverse range of games.

“If you look at the long span of it, the first idea [for Scalebound] was when we started the company and were thinking of ideas and games that we want to make,” said Kamiya. “The idea popped up there, but then we made Bayonetta. Then after Bayonetta, we revived the idea and made a prototype but that prototype failed and the game got cancelled. It was put on a backburner for a variety of reasons and we moved on to The Wonderful 101.”

“When they first started, the idea was for a Wii game and we wanted to use a Wii remote to do the orders for the dinosaurs,” said Kamiya. “You were in control of the dinosaurs, you were ordering the dinosaurs around, and they’d do cool things. Then after we made Bayonetta, we started the prototype. The first thing that I made a change to was making it a dragon game.”

“We changed the dinosaurs to dragons, but at that point the lead character was even weaker than [current protagonist] Drew is in the context of Scalebound. She was actually a little girl who was with these dragons. As we were making this prototype, I realized that I didn’t want to just be watching the fight, I wanted to be more participatory in the fight. And I started talking with the staff about how maybe we should change this to be a swordsman or someone a little bit older. This was when the prototype got put on the backburner, so to speak, and the project was halted. Then we made The Wonderful 101.”

“The most fun for me is building out the dragon and then building the enemies of the dragon that’s going to fight and you see them start fighting on the screen and seeing those battles play out,” he added. “That’s really what we wanted to do with the game from a core play perspective and being able to execute on that has been a lot of fun for me.”

Video: Here’s Some Information About The Lost Kid Icarus Wii Game

You may remember that quite a few year’s back a rumour popped up on IGN stating that Kid Icarus was being developed for the original Wii. The game was being discussed by Nintendo in 2007 and the developer the company choose to reboot the acclaimed franchise was none other than Factor 5, the developers behind the successful Rogue Squadron series. However, as we know the game was ultimately cancelled and never saw the light of day. But thankfully, Pit did make a return in the fantastic Kid Icarus Uprising for Nintendo 3DS.

Here’s A Look At The Wii Version Of Rodea The Sky Soldier

NIS America has given fans a glimpse of the original Wii version of Rodea The Sky Soldier. The flight based platformer was originally in development for the Wii and Nintendo 3DS, but was later brought to the Wii U. The Wii version, which is unreleased, comes pre-bundled with early copies of Rodea The Sky Soldier on the Wii U. There’s obvious differences including the visuals and the control scheme as the Wii version uses the Wii Remote and Nunchuck for control. Rodea the Sky Soldier will finally be available for purchase on November 10th.
