At the start of 2010, a Sega of America studio director indicated that Sega is not likely to publish anymore mature content for the Wii console. In general, a number of publishers in late 2009 started to rethink their approaches to Nintendo's console because core-focused content simply wasn't selling as well as casual content like Ubisoft's Just Dance game.
Considering Sega's past comments about the Wii, we were somewhat surprised to see them agree to publish a sequel to The Conduit as well as sign Tournament of Legends. Both of these titles would appear to be more for a core gamer than a casual Wii gamer. IndustryGamers chatted briefly with Sega West President Mike Hayes today about this apparent reversal of Sega's Wii stance. As it turns out, however, Hayes said it wasn't really a reversal at all because Sega offered some erroneous quotes initially.
