IGN brings word today that Factor 5, once critical of Wii’s paltry graphics, is now making an unannounced Wii game without using GameCube tech.
Not only did Factor 5 work with Nintendo to develop GameCube’s audio solution, but it pushed the console harder on a graphics level than just about every other studio, Nintendo included. Bearing that in mind, fans can rest assured that whatever the company’s new Wii game is, it’s a safe bet that it’ll look good and push the hardware.
Rogue Squadron II for GameCube was one of the most polished games of last generation. I’m confident Factor 5 will make the Wii hardware sweat as well.
