It was just recently that legendary BAFTA winner Will Wright was declaring the Wii a superior platform for development, and it looks like he's a man of his word as it's been announced that Spore is coming to that very platform.
For those living under a rock, Spore is an upcoming PC game in which you evolve a species from its tiniest cellular incarnation to an entire space travelling population. Aside from being a game by Wright, the title has generated a lot of excitement for its increasing sense of scale and ambition, as well as the promised customization and the all-important feeling of Godlike power that the player will be imbued with.
"The only next gen system I've seen is the Wii--the PS3 and the Xbox 360 feel like better versions of the last, but pretty much the same game with incremental improvement," explained the icon. "The Wii feels like a major jump -- not that the graphics are more powerful, but that it hits a completely different demographic. In some sense I see the Wii as the most significant thing that's happened, at least on the console side, in quite a while."
Spore is coming to the PC in Q2 of 2008, Thus far, there has been no further details on a release date for the Wii version, or what changes will be involved. Destructoid shall, of course, keep you posted.
