Announced during Tecmo’s recent “Nite Out” press event, Project Rygar is set to hit the stage as a Wii exclusive. Sadly, not much was released at this time, other than some character and concept art. From IGN:
Based on the classic NES/Arcade game (which also made a glorious stop on PS2), this game starts the franchise anew with new characters and settings. Kikuchi wants to make a game that people can easily get into through the Wiimote, and the Wiimote will be your main control device for Rygar’s Diskarmor. He hopes to be able to show more of Rygar some time this year.
This just might be the type of good news that the Wii has been waiting for. While Square-Enix is the primary reason the press is in Japan this weekend, it’s obvious that Tecmo is ready to tease us with potential “hits in the making” of their own.
Whether or not the game will deliver the goods is anybody’s guess. Nonetheless, the thought of using the Wiimote to control the Diskarmor certainly sounds appealing.
