Capcom To Lend Support To WiiWare
Posted by Damien McFerran
According to a recent interview, industry veteran Capcom has expressed interest in developing for Nintendo’s WiiWare platform.
Christian Svensson, Capcom's VP of strategic planning & business development, had this to say:
We’re looking for the right content first — a lot of the content we have now isn’t quite right in value or approach or interface for WiiWare.
He added that development on titles in the West would begin very shortly, and although he couldn’t speak for his Japanese counterparts, he fully expected Capcom Japan to start creating games for Nintendo’s new service too.
As one of the most respected software houses of all time, having Capcom on board would present a major boost for WiiWare. The company has already impressed on Microsoft’s XBLA, and upcoming updates of games like Commando and Bionic Commando would certainly down well on the Wii’s fledgling download service.
