    News from cubed3:

    We hear about how special Nintendo's Wii in on a pretty regular basis, but now we are set to see some real action as a group of Japan's finest developers join forces for a new project. The latest issue of Famitsu magazine has revealed that Marvelous Interactive (Harvest Moon, Rune Factory, Luminous Arc), CING (Another Code, Hotel Dusk) and Townfactory are all working together on a new project that will be released on Nintendo's Wii. At present it is scheduled for a 2008 release and is simply titled 'Project O', being classed as a new genre along the lines of SimEarth.

    For those wondering who Townfactory is, it consists of Kimura Shourou who worked on a few Lovedelic games like Moon and LOL, as well as Chulip on PlayStation 2. In addition there is Hideo Minaba, an ex-Square Enix art director who is currently working with Mistwalker for character designs on the highly anticpated RPG project Archaic Sealed Heat (aka A.S.H.). On top of this there is Kazuyuki Kurashima, a graphic artist that created monster and art designs for Square Enix on the Super Mario RPG (SNES) release, plus recently did animation work on Freshly Picked Tingle's Rosey Rupeeland (DS). Fact fans should note he worked alongside Shourou-san on Moon and LOL.

    Wasn't there a risqué french novel called Project O?

    Official homepage

    Does that art style remind me of those Seiken Densetsus with their hand-drawn water colour backgrounds?

    IGN has a few tidbits about the game.

    Wada revealed that his inspiration for Project O originally came from a Doraemon toy set. Similar to the "secret tools" that appear in the popular children's animation series, Wada imagined a tool that allows players to create a world, give it life, and observe the subsequent happenings. He likens this to the game Sim Earth. But in addition to a distant view of the world, he wanted to let players experience the world from the first person perspective of one of its residents. He likens this to Sim People.

    Why yes York, I do believe there is a lot of downloadable content for this title, indeed, it's based around it.

    I'm really looking forward to this. What are the chances of a PAL release? And when do you guys think it will be out? 2009?

    That looks lovely. I get the feeling there's going to be quite a bit of resource management in there :(

    Could a mod change the thread title to King Story? (if Mad Mirko agrees :-) )

    Call it something like "King Story (former Project O)" or something, so people know it's the same.

    FOOTBALL RPG!

    That would be Inazuma Eleven by Level 5 on the DS, then?

    It's great to see proper Wii games in development, hopefully shovelware will soon be a thing of the past...

    As good as that would be I can't see it happening. The Wii is far too successful not to be targeted by quick cash grandma fooling corporations

    Lovely indeed. I'm a bit worried that it'll turn out to be anothe Black & White though. All bounce and no play.

    This could be really special, and I hope they take their time and don't let themselves be rushed by the building hype. All the ingredients are there, but it's a very ambitious project.

    Shit, this game might end up doing to me what Animal Crossing did to me. :(

    I am fairly impressed by the looks of this, and it looks like a 'proper' Wii game in the making which is great, but I hoped the art style was going to be a bit more like the concept art that went with the job adverts for the team a while ago.
