Following on from the earlier GoNintendo report about Brutal Legend being slated for a Wii release, the internet has been abuzz for a few days after an ambiguous reply by Tim Schafer when asked whether or not it’s actually coming: “We are making an Xbox 360 and a PS3 version of Brutal Legend“.
Proving itself as a fairly reliable source several times now, Variety has gone ahead and said the Wii version is definitely coming after questioning several of its own sources. Apparently the Wii version won’t be developed by Double Fine — similarly to how the PlayStation 2 version of Psychonauts wasn’t — and will probably come out a good while later.
It’s quite probable the Wii will struggle with the sheer scope of Brutal Legend, though. As we’ve learnt in the recent previews, it’s an open world game; battles can have around 80 units on screen; and it has a pretty serious multiplayer offering — in fact, Schafer says they developed the multiplayer before the single-player game.
