IGN has an article about an original IP created by the same team behind Street fighter HD for XBLA, which are an eidos subsidiary... looks pretty awesome, you go find parts, make a customized monster based on class and you can fight other monsters.... ONLINE
sounds awesome, heres an excerpt:
[size=9][i]IGN Wii: Why Wii?
Kelly Tainton: The type of gameplay in Monster Lab was a perfect fit for the Wii. The entire purpose to the game is to help the user feel like they are truly a mad scientist. The Wii lends itself to that type of gameplay perfectly.
[b]IGN Wii: Exactly what is the premise for the game?
Kelly Tainton: You start off as an apprentice in the Mad Science Alliance. You learn (with help from your mentor, Professor Fuseless) how to explore six different areas of the Ghastly Valley in order to find different ingredients. Once you have those, you take them back to your castle in order to perform experiments, using the ingredients. Those then make different monster parts (heads, torsos, arms, and legs), based on three different sciences (mechanical, alchemical, and biological) There are literally millions of different combinations of monsters you can make. You then take control of your monster to go back out in to the world to progress through the game, battling other monsters along the way!
IGN Wii: Talk about the monster creation feature. How elaborate is it?
Kelly Tainton: Let me say this again. Millions of different combinations! You can have a monster that is made up of a wrench for an arm, a fish head in a glass bowl, a torso made out of a truck, and legs made out of tree vines. The quality of all of your parts is based on how well you perform the experiments that make them, and what type of part you make is determined on the ingredients you used to make it. The amount of experimentation is nearly endless.[/i]
so its kinda like this: the game wants you to go out and explore: then once in a while it will throw missions at you...
you find parts:
add em to your beasts...
make the beasts work in your lab:
Then make em fight ONLINE or OFF:
Looks friggin awesome.... read
