Doctor Who games coming to Wii and DS!

   0


A few months ago, BBC announced that it had partnered with Nintendo to release games based on Doctor Who for the Wii and DS. Today, those games were announced: Evacuation Earth for the DS, and Return to Earth for the Wii. Release dates are still unclear, but some retailers are listing them for an October release in the UK. Whether they get released in North America is another question.

These will hopefully be the first "real" games based on the new series, since the only games that have come out in the 5 years since the series rebooted have been a card game for the PC, and the lackluster Adventure Games (though, next week's new chapter: TARDIS, sounds intriguing). However, the developer for the games is Asylum Entertainment, the makers of such "fine" games as Sushi Go Round for the iPhone, Fisher-Price: Rescue Heroes: Molten Menace, Play With The Teletubbies and Galidor: Defenders of the Outer Dimension. So...yeah. It's going to be a licensed game by a small developer, and it's doubtful the games will be in the running for GOTY or anything like that. On the plus side, presumably these will be budget titles.

So, anyone else excited about being able to control the Sonic Screwdriver with a stylus or the Wiimote? Or will these end up being the usual licensed shovelware aimed at children? Without Anthony Burch on staff, will this news be reported?!?

Age: 23
Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Profile: I'm a longtime gamer, and started playing video games during the transition from the NES to the SNES. Although I like retro games, I play mostly newer games on the 360. Still, my favourite gaming memories are from all-nighters filled with Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Smash Bros. in the late 90s.

I'm looking for a career in public service, politics or other fields where research and writing are critical. Though, the closer it's related to games, the better.

I make videos, animated gifs, podcasts and all kinds of random stuff in my spare time. I'm also trying to develop my own gaming website (details coming eventually).

Systems: NES, Super NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo 64, Wii, Sega Genesis, Playstation 2, Xbox 360, PC, Colecovision (my dad's). Also, many other systems (including arcade) that I not emulate.

Some Favourite Games:
Retro (NES-SNES eta): Megaman 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario All-Stars, Sonic 3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Robotrek, Illusion of Gaia, Megaman X, Lufia 1 and 2, Strider, Metal Slug, Twilight Zone pinball.

Retro Limbo (N64 era): Ogre Battle 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Mystical Ninja starring Goemon, Goemon's Great Adventure, Descent: Freespace.

Modern: Halo: Reach, Modern Warfare 2, Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta, Tales of Vesperia, Fallout 3, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid Prime 1-3, Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam, Hearts of Iron II, Europa Universalis III, Civilization IV.
