High Voltage’s Animales de la Muerte is officially NOT coming to WiiWare anymore. For those not in the know this game is a bloodthirsty comic shooter set in a zoo of all places. Check out the interview we did last year with High Voltage to find out lots more about this game.
The fact that it is no longer planned for WiiWare comes as no surprise to us. Our internal source at High Voltage had said just as much almost 3 months ago, but would not make an official statement. Apparently there was still a glimmer of hope that it would be a downloadable title as opposed to a full blown disc release (suicide for this type of game methinks!).
Nintendo World Report recently caught up with Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage Software in regards to The Conduit, but finally he came out and admitted that Animales would not squeeze into WiiWare’s tiny 40MB file size limit due to the ‘focus on comedy and its accompanying large quantity of audio’. The project is on hold for now, but perhaps one day you'll see on the shelves of your local videogame store?
