Why Civilization Revolution Isn't Coming to the Wii

24358222561df1c07b99hg7.jpg

WiiHD is a huge fan of Civilization and Sid Meier's in general. So when we heard about Civilization Revolution, a consoles only reimagining of his long-lived Civilization franchise, we were excited about the possibilities. Briefly, it appeared that the Wii would receive an in-house port of Civ Rev, albeit several months after the PS3, 360, and DS versions. After a couple of months of letting us think that, Firaxis/2K made the decision to cancel forever shelf development of the Wii version indefinately.

Because of the vastly different requirements for the 360/PS3 platforms and the Wii platform, development for Wii had to be from the ground up, whereas PS3 development could share the 360's assets. With manpower and resources limited, the Wii really was the most logical choice to be cut. WiiHD hates that this is true, but sadly it is. They would have us hold out hope that if the game does well, a Wii version might still be developed, so consider purchasing it on the DS or 360. Hit us after the break for quotes and links.

Behold, The Conduit

the-conduit-20080417033656056.jpg
High Voltage, WiiHD's new favorite developer has introduced it's newest property, The Conduit. A Scifi FPS with political intrigue, unique gameplay elements, promised online play, and never-before-tried-on-Wii graphical effects, The Conduit promises to be the very first FPS on Wii to bring the whole package. Matt and Bozon, by way of the Nintendo Voicechat podcast, report that High Voltage has plenty of publisher interest, but doesn't need the funding, so they're holding off choosing until the game is ready to roll, and can't be ruined by an over-zealous publisher. Hit the permalink for the trailer and footage of High Voltage's exclusive Wii graphics engine.

WiiHD Currents: Free Radical says Wii has huge FPS potential.

timesplitters4lz9.jpg
Or at least, Derek Littlewood did. In all the time the Wii has been out, FPS development has been going downhill when it should have been getting better. 1st generation wiimote controls all suffered in one way or another, but with Metroid Demos proving the IR Pointer's potential, Developers should have gotten the point. Instead, the FPS that hit the Wii in the first cycle, like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor are seeing cutbacks, leaving the Wii entirely, or sending in backbenchers. See the quote after the break.
