Last month, news broke that Factor 5 is working on a title for Nintendo's Wii console. A couple weeks later, we ran our own story, announcing that trustworthy sources close to Factor 5 told Kombo that the developer is actually creating an all-new Kid Icarus game for Wii. Now, Factor 5 president Julian Eggerbrecht has gone on the record, speaking to IGN at DICE 2008 in Las Vegas about the developer's mysterious Wii project.
"We want to push the hardware. I think for us it's relatively easy for us to push the hardware. It inherently comes. But a lot of it is about exploiting the uniqueness of the Wii. I mean, on the graphical side, we're going to try and do everything to outdo everything else on the platform, the same as we did for the Star Wars games back on the GameCube," Eggebrecht told IGN. "But one of our main focuses is the innovation around the controls. Everybody is always talking about the motion control, but I think people are overplaying that a bit. I really, really love the pointing aspect of the remote. Although we're going to use everything for what we have in development, I think the pointing stuff is probably the biggest innovation which we're working on right now."
