Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey big top makes its first-ever foray into the world of games this holiday season.
If broad appeal is the name of the game, it's harder to get more broad than "ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages." So it stands to reason that 2K Play could have some significant hits on its hands with today's announcement that it is working on Wii and DS games for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Set for release this holiday season, the Ringling Bros. games will adapt "The Greatest Show on Earth" to Nintendo's popular systems. While the publisher didn't talk about gameplay, the announcement mentioned "a precursor of what to expect" in the form of a recent high-wire performance where one of the circus members walked a 25-foot tightrope with only a Wii Remote and Nunchuk in his hands for balance.
While the game won't be out until the holidays, 2K Play said more would be revealed at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo in June. The Take-Two Interactive label currently publishes a line of popular but crtically panned Carnival games for the Wii and DS.
its a shame on one side they make bioshock on the wii side they see nothing but $$$ and makes this shovelware crap
At least some well-known publishers are showing SOME interest in the Wii and are developing games for the Wii and DS
lol You'd think in a troubled Global Economy people would be trying to focus money into quality products, so that people would buy them.
wow we can make a game about anything these days how long until a plumbers sim, or a game were you go to store.what crap and this is why no one takes nintendo serious in the "hardcore" spectrum
Rule of thumb on the Wii as a developer: Call it casual, and a publisher will pick you up, no matter how obviously bad the game can be, right from its initial announcement.
I don't even have the heart to make a sarcastic Wii comment on this. It's just sad how little respect the Wii is getting.
