Honestly, I'm stunned it's getting localized at all and will be shocked if it does well. It seems like it'd be a niche game regardless of system install base. The wii version is only even being distributed in japan as a bonus to the wiiu version, right? Some kind of first-print-run bonus here or something didn't seem to be impossible.
I think the point is, we don't know, and therefore it's cool that we might have both options. The game was designed for the Wii, so it makes sense people would prefer to play the original vision of the game.
I'm in such a weird position. First, I hardly know anything about this game, but if it turns out I end up wanting it... I want the 3DS version, as it's my favorite platform, but being a touchscreen game I think it'd play better on WiiU... but I want the Wii version because, really, it's going to be super rare. Decisions.
Releasing the Wii version might not be quite so nuts an idea, there's still millions and millions of Wii systems out there and almost nothing being released (i assume the only other Wii retail releases this year will be fifa, just dance and skylanders), it probably could pick up a few sales especially at Christmas
Woah, the regular Wii version too? That's awesome if it really does release as an actual Wii disc, I definitely want to play this on the Wii. Why in the world wouldn't the Wii U version have both gamepad or Wiimote control support options, though? That makes no sense!
The Wii U and 3DS game is a sky adventure while the original Wii project is flying action. Comparing things on another level, the Wii version is pure action while Wii U has added growth elements.
