Tenchu 4 Kitty Gameplay

tenchu.jpg

Ninjas? Check. Bloody Assassinations? Check. A stealthy bag of tricks including ninja kitties? Check. Wait, what?

Tenchu 4 is a Wii exclusive, and the first video after the break demonstrates that not-so-innovative remote stealth gameplay. What makes the gameplay mechanism fraking awesome is that the remote unit is a kitty cat. The game hasn't been high on WiiHD's attention list, but the cat footage is tough to pass up.

The simple retrieval mission demonstrated below is hopefully not the extent of kitty shennigans possible with this game. WiiHD wants the ability to direct cats to locations strategically near enemy ninjas' sleep quarters, and then to have them do what cats do—sleep. Defeating an enemy ninja is just a day job. Recording the look on his face when he steps on a sleeping cat right after waking up and uploading it to youtube is sweet victory.

Watch the footage after the break.

Mushroom Men (Wii)

mushroom.jpg

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's a meteor with strange properties about to land in the middle of a jungle and give rise to sentient mushrooms and cacti and aggressive and violent insects in the area of its impact! *pause for breath*

So begins the saga of Mushroom Men, who, after their rise to sentience, quickly divide into 4 different nations and, as nations are wont to do, they go to war. There are 4 Mushroom Nations. You are one of the Bolete, one of two non-poisonous Mushroom Nations. The two poisonous nations are looking to wipe out all other Mushroom Tribes so they can be the only Mushroom Men.

Your part in this game will be to guide Pax, one such sentient mushroom, along the way to solve the mystery of the origins of the Mushroom Men, while hopefully stopping a war, bringing glory to your nation (the Bolete) and saving the entire world of Mushroom Men from self-destruction. Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars is a 3rd person action adventure title for Wii due out this November.

The game has a very appealing look and sound, so be sure to check out game screens and video after the break.

Spyborgs Undergoing "Significant Overhual"

spyborg.jpg

Is that good news or bad? Hard to say. But there was a long stretch in the Wii's lifespan where when developers noticed serious problems with their Wii games, they stamped them gold anyway and shipped them out. That's never really been Capcom's style though.

What is Spyborgs? A team-based (offline coop only) action game with a Saturday morning Cartoon style that asks you to save the world from super villains. It boasts development teams that worked on Ratchet and Clank and Resistance: Fall of Man, and it Was due out in Spring '09, but we'll have to see if it will still make that release window.

Want to see more? Catch some media after the break.

Star Wars The Clone Wars (Gallery)

clonewars2.jpg
Didn't we just do a Star Wars post? Ah, yes, The Force Unleashed. Well that's not the only Jedi action you'll be getting in 2008. The upcoming animated Star Wars The Clone Wars (a.k.a. Star Wars: The Quest for More Money) gets its own game as well.

Exclusive to Nintendo, there's a different version for each system. The Wii gets Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels. DS gets Star Wars The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance. The DS version is being developed by LucasArts, and the Wii version has been outsourced to Licensee-heavy Krome.

The Wii version, as you can tell from the name, promises to be the Lightsaber title for Wii. Meaning there's some smack talk between Krome (The Clone Wars Wii) and Krome (Force Unleashed Wii).

The Clone Wars is due out for the Holidays this year. So we'll see soon enough which Krome prevails.

Hit the break for 8 screens for each system and some footage (including new E3 footage).

Joystiq Gets their hands on Force Unleashed (Wii)

swfuboxart.jpg

WiiHD's gallery of fresh Wii-specific screens and video for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is ready for your waiting eyes. But we didn't want to just give you eye candy, so we dug up Joystiq's hands-on for the Wii too.

Assuming you haven't been hiding under rock for the past few months, you know the Wii gets an exclusive Duel Mode where you can go head to head with your friends. It also gets a few extra stages over the PS360, and some special Wii-specific moves. Joystiq didn't miss the advanced physics of the PS360, proclaiming that the Wii physics felt "realistic enough" under the conditions they were able to test. The visuals were jaggie-filled, but Joystiq liked most of the motion controls. Although the light saber didn't always respond in kind, they were down with the force controls.

The Duel Mode has no AI option—it requires 2 players. There are 27 characters and 9 locations to choose from. In addition to lightsaber action, you still get to use your force powers on objects in the locations. Best we can tell, there isn't much differentiation between the characters' moves. Everyone gets one single blade lightsaber, and the same basic move set. You can tell the characters have different strengths from the duel mode screenshot though. But overall the moves feature a richness in combination that makes this mode a rich fighter, almost worthy of separate packaging according to Joystiq.

Hit the break for Wii-specific media.

Deadly Creatures Boxart

WiiHD is errily entranced by DCWii (Deadly Creatures). The environments, the music, the gameplay, the ever-present sense of danger… It's a unique title, and it's exclusive to Wii. We highly recommend you check it out.

Yesterday, GoNintendo found the boxart for this great game. See more Deadly Creatures screens and video after the break.

Deadly Creatures Impressions from Destructoid

dcwiihead.jpg
Rainbow Studios calls the game an action thriller, but at WiiHD, we prefer to classify it under the lesser known arachnid horror category. You have your pick of two heroes to play as. Behind door number one, your friendly neighborhood tarantula, is said to like quiet introspection and Harry Potter novels. Behind the other door is the affably outgoing scorpion, reported to enjoy bold moves and Battlestar Galactica. Your mission? To survive a trek a across a dangerous and enemy-infested desert. It's dark, brooding, and even cinematic as there is a separate human drama taking place outside your immediate battleground.

Samit Sarkar over at Destructoid got a little demo time with Deadly Creatures last week, and was kind enough to document his impressions for us today. Hit the break for quotes (and bonus material from IGN's April hands-on), screens, and two videos. Hit the source link for the all of Destructoid's impressions.
