Miyamoto Hints At GameCube Remakes For Wii
Posted by Aleksander Aasnes
In an interview with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream, Shigeru Miyamoto hinted that Nintendo may remake GameCube titles for Wii, both the graphics and the control system of the games will get an overhaul.
"The machine is based on GC," said Miyamoto. "We'll be upgrading the development tools, but GameCube code can be used for the most part as is. In that sense, I believe that it would be good to remake GameCube games for Wii, and that some titles would become better with the change to the Wii remote controller."
And the best part, the games are going to be cheaper.
"Even now," continued Miyamoto, "GameCube titles are sold at used shops, so we don't feel we could sell them for full price. However, development costs have been taken care of, so we could probably sell them at a more accessible price. If we make it so that such GC to Wii remakes can be produced quickly, it's possible that many titles will also be released from third parties."
