Space Channel prolly not coming to Wii because Sega are nasty poopheads.

Long rumored, finally confirmed. It's supposed to be a remake, but there's not much info:

24.01.2008 10:20 Uhr - Dass Plateauschuhe und die wilden 60er-Jahre noch lange nicht aus der Mode sind, zeigt Space Channel 5: Publisher Sega werkelt derzeit an einem Remake zu diesem Musik- und Tanzspiel für Wii, wie der japanische Publisher bekannt gegeben hat. Dabei handelt es sich um eine Neuauflage der Dreamcast-Version, die 1999 in die Läden kam. Technisch orientiert sich die Wii-Version vermutlich an dem PS2-Pendant, der 2002 den Weg in die Regale fand. Bislang hat der Publisher lediglich bestätigt, dass die Wii-Fassung über lizenzierte Musikstücke von der Pop-Ikone Michael Jackson verfügt. Sobald uns nähere Informationen zu Space Channel 5 für Wii vorliegen, lest ihr es natürlich an dieser Stelle.

Wii = Dreamcast 2?
Well, we're one year in and we've had Nights2 released, SATSR, & Mario & Sonic released, and games like HoTD 2&3, Space Channel 5, Samba, and now Space Channel 5 announced, at this rate we're going to have half the Sega DC/Saturn library on Wii.

Oh HELL YES

Didn't the dude who does these say he wanted to release on the high fidelity systems or some shit?

This game is *perfect* for wii.
SEGA have made pretty damn good decisions on the platform so far. Damn good indeed! :D

:D :D :D :D

Same here. Orta was such a great game, and if the same team made a new PD on the Wii, I'd be all set.
Since Smilebit were disbanded a long time ago that aint happening. :(

On a more positive note, Sega are on fire on the Wii, they actually "get" the console, and their commercial successes are just rewards of this.

Rez creator too afraid of Nintendo titles to make a game for Wii

A portion of a Wired interview with Tetsuya Mizuguchi…

W: In general, maybe not this game, but what do you think about making games for the Wii?

TM: Wii is a very unique platform. I have no projects yet, but I feel it’s very unique. I’m a little bit anxious about Nintendo platforms, as Nintendo games are too strong. I’m a little bit worried about that.


W: Do you think that there’s anything that Nintendo can do to help third parties?

TM: I have no experience working with Nintendo yet, so I don’t know.



OH THE IRONY!!!

And you forgot to quote that:

"Do you think you can get Space Channel 5 back from Sega and do Space Channel 5 HD?

(Laughter.) If I had a reason to remake Space Channel 5 on the new platforms, I will do that."

I bought a DreamCast a month ago. I'm thinking about some games. Is Space Channel really good ? I mean, I'm short on cash, so...

How is this a confirmation? Who is this website? What is their source?
That's an official website of the Computec Media AG, which publishes several magazines each month. Scroll to the bottom of the website to see all of those. ;)

So yeah, i would say this website is trustworthy.

This seems to be the same hypocritic statement made by everyone. "We're afraid our games won't sell next to Nintendo's. Not that we've tried before, or plan to try in the future, though. We just assume."

I've been hoping for a new Panzer or some cool rail shooters ever since the Wii was announced.
I've thought a new Panzer would be fantastic ever since the canyon flying segment in Twilight Princess. That said, what I'd love above all else for that franchise is a 100% faithful remake of Saga with just better graphics and a wider release so more people can appreciate that game. I don't necessarily want that on the Wii whereas I think a rail shooter PD would be good there... I just want it made.

Wow, this came out of nowhere. A supposed remake huh. Wow.

Coming now to the Sega Wi-... I mean, Nintendo Wii.

Seriously, Sega are porting/remaking/revitalizing damn near everything on the Wii it seems. At least they seem happy with it!

Dear Sega,

BUDGET PRICE. INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL TWO GAMES. HOKEY COMMERCIALS SHOWING OLD PEOPLE PLAYING THE GAME TO GET IT TO SELL. DO NOT EXPECT COMMERCIAL SUCCESS, IT WON'T HAPPEN. DO NOT RUIN THE GAMEPLAY. DO NOT TONE DOWN THE STRANGENESS.

Love,
Space Channel 5 Fans.
