    Oh god, why did I start reading the comments on that "Nintendo Lineup" page?
    I think I lost 10 points of IQ in 30 seconds.

    Bulletpoints:

    - based on the original Broken Sword
    - lots of new content, new puzzles, new locations, expanded story
    - controls obviously redone for DS and Wii
    - some new animations by Dave Gibbons (Watchmen)
    - developed by Revolution, published by Ubisoft
    - game's pretty much gone gold, coming to Europe in March 2009

    I saw Broken Sword mentioned briefly in that Wii/DS Q1 lineup. I know absolutely nothing about the game, but the fact that it's a point-and-click has me intrigued and I've heard it mentioned in a good light around here a bunch. According to the GAF thread:
    Facts:
    - based on the original Broken Sword, possibly the best adventure game ever created
    - lots of new content, new puzzles, new locations, expanded story
    - controls obviously redone for DS and Wii
    - some new animations by Dave Gibbons (Watchmen)
    - developed by Revolution, published by Ubisoft
    - game's pretty much gone gold, coming to Europe in March 2009
    - you have to buy it!

    More screenshots.

    The only question I have is Wii or DS? I prefer portable things nowadays, but apparently only the Wii version has voiceover work. :(

    EDIT: elkatas and I are lurking simultaneously. :)

    I wonder if they are going to re-dub it completely. Hopefully, because original dub was *ahem* pretty bad, to put it mildly.

    Press release for Broken Sword:
    Ubisoft wrote:
    UBISOFT SIGNS DEAL TO PUBLISH THE DIRECTOR'S CUT VERSION OF BROKEN SWORD – SHADOW OF THE TEMPLARS

    Genre-defining Adventure Game that Introduced Gamers to the Mysteries of the Knights Templars Makes its Debut on WiiTM and Nintendo DSTM Systems with a Special Edition

    London, UK – DECEMBER 19, 2008 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced a publishing agreement to release the special edition of Broken Sword – Shadow of the Templars on Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ systems.

    “Ubisoft works with the very best development talent in the world,” said Alain Corre, Ubisoft EMEA Executive Director. “We jumped at the opportunity to work with Charles Cecil and Revolution to publish a game of the highest pedigree so perfectly suited for the Nintendo audience.”

    Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars – The Director’s Cut builds on the original, boasting a new and explosive narrative interwoven with the first story. New puzzles have been added for Nintendo DS and Wii that specifically utilize Nintendo's unique control methods. The game also features stunning animated facial expressions drawn by Dave Gibbons, the artistic genius behind the comic book and upcoming movie, Watchmen.

    “These new platforms and their innovative controls enabled us to translate and enrich the point-and-click gaming experience in a way that no other console allowed before,” said Charles Cecil, founder of Revolution Software and designer of the Broken Sword series. “Through Dave’s animated faces, the game’s characters are portrayed as empathetic and emotional – driving the narrative in a way that has never been done before in an adventure game. The Director’s Cut has allowed me to deliver my true vision for the series."

    Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars – The Director’s Cut starts with the player in control of charming Parisian photo-journalist Nicole Collard, who witnesses the brutal and horrifying murder of one of Paris’s richest and most influential statesmen. During her investigations, which feature exclusive new locations, Nico meets amiable American George Stobbart, who has been unwittingly caught up in the sinister and bloody theft of an ancient manuscript. Together, they are drawn into a terrifying conspiracy rooted in a long-forgotten medieval legend.

    Expanding on the original classic storyline, The Director's Cut features tight scripting and an intense atmosphere from the explosive opening sequence to the gripping finale, where the full threat of the conspiracy is revealed.

    Adds Charles Cecil, “The Director’s Cut features elements that enhance the original puzzles and storyline, which helps explain what happened prior to the start of the original game, and how it ties to later games in the series.”

    Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars – The Director’s Cut is scheduled for release on Wii and Nintendo DS in March 2009.

    Hmh... only one new segment? Probably not, but that is image I got from the press release. And Dave Gibbons drawing facial expressions, hmh hmh.

    The combat in Fragile looks pretty crappy. They shouldnt have any combat at all.

    Though given that the combat is crappy, if they just made things more enclosed, it would almost be survival horror!

    yeah, hopefully they've tightened it up since the last showing. I remember hearing a lot of grumbles.

    It should be more of an Ico style puzzle solving adventure with some lite-Zelda-like combat and of course, no level up for the main character although he can strengthen his items.

    I'll admit I'm a sucker for industrial decay, exploration, isolation, flashlights, mysteries and the art style.

    I'm quite open to being disappointed, but it could be amazing.

    Yeah I'm with Xagarath on this one, Fragile looks like the best coming Wii game. Of course, that's not counting vague promises of a new Mario and Zelda or whatever, but it's Nintendo. Those are just the bare minimum of what you expect.

    Amen. The style and mood of that world just look amazing. If they crush that potential with crappy gameplay and Boobsy McFloatingbitch I'm going to fly to Japan and bludgeon them to death, crushing them like they crushed my dreams.

    Also included is the IR Calibration mode, taken from House of the Dead 2 & 3, and it works pretty well

    I hope this hasn't been posted yet, but Nintendo Power has confirmed that the Klonoa remake is coming to North America.
    - Magazine refers to the game as just ‘Klonoa’
    - Spring 2009 release
    - Original design is being kept due to the massive outcry through the official survey
    - North American version will see some gesture controls
    - B trigger to grab enemies, flick Wiimote to throw
    - NES-Style Wiimote, Cube controller, Classic Controller confirmed
    - Klonoa 2 remake may happen

    Thank goodness.

    Because the lion's share of the Wii user base consists of people who, sadly, are none the wiser. A fitting analogy would be hearing that the psycho who diddled you as a kid has become a freelancing babysitter with a low hourly rate and an inconspicuous exterior.
