Kind of a rumor, but not really: Sam and Max coming to the Wii

2008-01-13 14:40:00  ยท  Nick Chester

Since late 2006, PC fans have been enjoying the triumphant return of world-famous anthropomorphic detective duo, Sam and Max. Its point-and-click style has been a hit with gamers since the 1993 release of Sam & Max Hit the Road, but the team has never made its way to consoles. 

With the Wii's mouse-like pointer controls, fans have thought it would be the perfect match, and rumors of a pairing have long haunted the hallowed halls of the Internet. The game's retail publisher, JoWood, seems to have confirmed Sam & Max on the Wii in a German press release for one of their Agatha Christie titles:

JoWooD plant weitere seiner erfolgreichen Lizenzen aus dem Adventure Games für Nintendo® Wii™ zu adaptieren. Eines der nächsten Projekte: Sam & Max. Als Adventure des Jahres, gewählt von den Lesern des deutschen Computerspielmagazins „PC Games“ (zu finden in der aktuellen Printausgabe 2/2008), gehen Sam & Max bald auch bei Nintendo® Wii™ auf Verbrecherjagd. 

In simple English: JoWood plans to adapt their successful licensed adventure titles for consoles, one of which is Sam and Max, which will soon be brought to the Wii. A betting man would put money on the Wii release being ports of Sam & Max Seasons, already available on the PC. But one can always hold out hope for an all-new adventure, right?
