First Disaster: Day of Crisis screen revealed ...

... and it looks like crap. Surprise! But really, what were you expecting? It is the Wii, after all.

But let's not bemoan what many of us have already come to expect, shall we? The good news is that Disaster: Day of Crisis is still on its way for the Wii from Monolith Soft, makers of the epic Xenosaga series on PS2 and the beautiful Baten Kaitos on the ol' GCN -- not really the sort of game you'd expect from a developer with a history built almost solely on RPGs.

And why should we care? For starters, my little heart jumps at the thought of any original content on the Wii, as should yours -- Disaster ain't a port, or a sequel, it's a Wii title built from the ground up. Second, if Monolith has taken any cues from Agetec's butt-ugly but sorely-underrated Disaster Report, epic world-killing disasters make for great gameplay, and set the stage for some unique applications of the Wiimote. Think action-platformer plus.

Hit that lonely one-pic gallery for a blissfully high-res shot of low-res gaming. Disaster: Day of Crisis is set to release around the end of March.
