Wii 2008 sleeper hits dissected, discussed

Wii sleeper hitsIf you take out all of the obvious highly anticipated Wii titles coming out in 2008, you’d probably be left with some kind of “sleeper hit list” of titles that could very well be the silent but deadly killers in the console’s arsenal.

Conveniently, Planet Wii assembled a list of 10 Potential Sleeper Hits for Wii that are worth a look. Some titles, like Mushroom Men, Boom Blox and De Blob, have been talked about and previewed here on Infendo. But there are others. Oh yes, there are others! Find them below.

Rygar:The Battle of Argus
Developer: Tecmo
Publisher: Tecmo

The summary of Rygar is telling, in my opinion. Basically, Tecmo was going to port the PS2 game to Wii, a la 2007, but has apparently scrapped that idea in lieu of a graphics and gameplay overhaul. It’s almost like we’re seeing a microcosm of what’s happening in the games industry all wrapped up in a little game about weird enemies and yo-yo shields.
