Project H.A.M.M.E.R. is D.E.A.D.

Project HAMMER in doubtIt doesn’t take rocket scientist to figure out that development on Project HAMMER has probably ceased to be. At E3, Nintendo said things had been shuffled around, and work had started on new projects. HAMMER, meanwhile, was given a hot seat on the back burner. In the basement. Under a huge pile of nudie magazines. Naturally, seeing as this is a back burnder, those are magazines f the flame-retardant variety. But I digress…

Joystiq revisited the episode today and got more of the same from Nintendo’s L-crazy exec, Beth Llewellyn:

What’s the status of Project H.A.M.M.E.R. or Disaster: Day of Crisis?

Disaster is still in development. Project H.A.M.M.E.R. we’ve sort of shifted resources off that title. But Disaster is still in development. Again, you have to remember, E3 is one small little blip in time and we tried to focus on a few key titles. Rest assured, there is a lot more going on behind the scenes at Nintendo. You know the company, and we always have stuff going on …

Are you talking about the reasons why H.A.M.M.E.R. has been cancelled?


Annnnd… SCENE! Please note how Llewellyn did not correct the crafty Joystiq when it slipped the buzzword “cancelled” into the Q&A. This is bad.

Will HAMMER ever see the light of day? I’m thinking no, at least not in the form we saw in 2006. However, here’s my completely free no registration necessary pro tip: Scale it back a bit and release it via the Wii Shop channel or as a WiiWare title. Lower risk, lower cost, more chance of success. And give me a producer’s credit for the pro tip.
