Marvelous Entertainment Working on WiiWare Title

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Legendary Japanese game developer Marvelous Entertainment have recently announced a co-publishing deal with XSEED Games to distribute their titles in both the US and Europe. Marvelous are best known for their association with the long-running Harvest Moon series of games.

In a recent interview with Siliconera , Marvelous confirmed that they are in fact currently working on a downloadable title for the WiiWare platform. They were also quick to say that this upcoming WiiWare title was not a Harvest Moon game, but rather a brand new and original title.

While a new Harvest Moon game would have been an exciting announcement for WiiWare, Marvelous has long been a part of some amazing game releases over the years, so any news of an original title from them should be viewed as good news. We'll have more on this new WiiWare development project when the information becomes available.

They've done a lot of Japanese rpgs over the years. They're not very well-known outside of Japan (except among hardcore JRPG fans), but I'm anxious to see what they come up with for WiiWare.

And one of them worked on, or at least published, NO MORE HEROES! :D

Oh and that King Story game as well.

Yeah...I hope the Wiiware game has a name that make more sense, because it's going to be tough to recommend to my friends if my tongue has to get into a wrestling match with the G-D damn title!

Wow, I can hardly believe it. They are working on a Wiiware title. And on top of everything it is downloadable. Could it be that it is a... ...video game? ;-)

Well, they really do not reveal too much. If I can wish for something, then I'll say an jRPG. And please no remake with 8-bit graphics. Thank you.

Im a fan of Harvest Moon so I hope this game is as good as the games in tht series. Hopefully it has RPG elements similar to Havest Moon games.

Why would they release Harvest Moon on VC/Wiiware when they can retail it for $50? Its just like Square Enix. Excpet I like some Square Enix games. And not Harvest Moon. Let's hope for something interesting.

On a side note, the Harvest Moon series seems like a perfect match for WiiWare. The format lends itself to small block size and would probably fit more nicely into 2008 without a $50 dollar price tag. Me want.

Wait, Marvelous? I thought it was Natsume....oh wait, that's the publisher. (but I'm serious, I can't recall ever hearing the name Marvelous before....)

The only games I remeber from Xseed was the Wild Arms games, and not much else. Never heard of Marvelous before, though I apparently know their work. ;)

I got a feeling that we'll be expecting a Harvest Moon-esque game, or maybe a strategy game? Eh, I don't know.

Being a big fan of some of their games and the Harvest Moon series, I am excited. I hope this is a sign of things to come, perhaps Atlus will take note of this unknown game does well.
