Rygar on the NES is something of a guilty pleasure of mine. The game makes little sense, has some poorly implemented concepts and bosses that just seem unfair. Despite this, I still like to pop it in on occasions where I want to run around killing monsters as the Diskarmor is a really cool, fun weapon to use for such a purpose. So, when an updated version of Rygar was released on PlayStation 2 a few years ago, I eagerly snapped it up. Sadly, it wound up being a largely overlooked clone of Devil May Cry.
Now we're getting what I had assumed was a port of that PS2 release on the Wii. It looks better graphically and we've been assured that it's not the same game, so I may give the series another chance. Especially since I desperately want an excuse to dust off my Wii again. I just pray that waggle does not completely dominate gameplay. Shaking the remote for every toss of the Diskarmor is going to get old very fast.
What say you, Destructoid? Interested in throwing around a shield around and killing mythical beasts?
