Wii Get Worms

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Hot on the tail of the DS games, THQ announce that Team 17 are developing an online multiplayer Worms experience for Wii!

"In Worms: A Space Oddity, players will enjoy the ultimate blend of classic Worms game modes and re-invented single-player missions, as well as multiplayer modes that include a host of all-new party games and even more customization options. The game takes advantage of the Wii’s intuitive controls, on-screen hints and the redesigned interface with an in-game help system. Worms: A Space Oddity demonstrates significant visual, technical and design advancement over its predecessors with a new visual style that abandons the traditional drawn approach and replaces it with a distinctive style inspired by classic Sci-Fi looks. The Worms battles take place across six planets, each with its own, unique environments and global events. The online multiplayer experience pits up to four Worms fiends from all over the world against each other."

The game is being developed by legendary Team 17 and should be out early 2008 for your enjoyment.

I can't see if they'd use the Wii to it's full potential using the Wiimote, only pointing and clicking surely.

I still want Lemmings to come out of Wii, would be the same pointing and clicking as Worms, but I prefer Lemmings to Worms (there more crunchy)

Worms in 3D would be better suited to Wii controls. In 2D they wouldn't really be getting much out of the controls.

I just hope this new game is decent; Worms used to be such an awesome franchise.

I think it would be decent in 2D. Using the remote like a mouse. Would be great precision for Super Sheep and such?
