Harvey Birdman for Wii


In case you didn’t catch this, Capcom is bringing this Phoenix Wright clone to the Wii. The way IGN puts it here makes it sound as though there aren’t going to be any real differences between the PSP, PS2 and Wii versions, since they’re all being developed simultaneously. There really aren’t any other details, such as control Wii-ification, like banging the wiimote gavel-style, aiming Reducto’s shrink ray, etc.

My question is, given the usual quality of licensed games, do you think this will be a good game? Sure, it is Capcom, and sure, they created the source material as well, but I think it’ll be hard to keep this from becoming a gimmick or feeling like a rip-off. Your feelings?
