After a hectic ending to the work week, I took full advantage of the three day weekend. I had hopes of finishing TWEWY for the iOS (I strongly recommend it, especially if you have not played the original. Also, I don’t want to spoil but it appears as though the sequel we wanted might be on its way!) although I had almost zero gaming time. In fact, my Saturday was spent watching Notre Dame destroy Navy (I work on campus, so I have to root for them, right?) and then the rest of my day/night was spent watching the Lifetime Movie Network, lame right? Sunday was not much more exciting, in fact the only change was the channel to the Oddities Marathon. Just me, my wife, and nothing to do but relax. I am completely okay with my wasted, lazy weekend.
Now the workweek has hit us again, and news of a new “big budget” fantasy RPG has surfaced. Normally, we see leaks of such games in interviews, at trade shows, or even patents and/or teaser sites. This one was actually leaked via a job posting.
The Job listing only references the Wii U and no other consoles, although it is in reference to “innovative peripherals”, so other consoles are not completely ruled out. The picture above, known as the Dark Witch, is the only hint at content and it is listed as “an artwork fro one of our artists”, so it might not even be for this game (although I would assume it is). Regardless, it is fantastic to see that a company is creating a team and budget to work on a new fantasy RPG for the Wii U. The project is stated to be announced between October and December 2012. Although the thought of a new game always gives me goosebumps, I should state that the game is not officially confirmed, and until there is an official announcement anything could happen. Even with an official announcement, it could still take decades (exaggeration) to complete (Cough…Final Fantasy Versus XIII).
