Ratchet and Clank Future interview: The destroyed Wii character and more

Shacknews met with Insomniac's community relations manager, James Stevenson, to talk about Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.

Shacknews: Two characters are modeled after the PS3 and the X360 -- Cronk and Zephyr. We heard there was a Wii character who was destroyed in an argument between the two?

James Stevenson: There was Willy. Willy used to flail his arms around a lot and that was kind of how he operated. He was just a little too high strung, too much activity. He just didn't do very well in battle. There's Cronk and Zephyr, you know Zephyr's got some enhanced online abilities and connectivity. Zephyr has the Blu-ray player and all that. So you know, they're an interesting pair of robots. We kind of enjoyed making references like that, just kind of joking about the industry with those two guys.

Shacknews: Is that Insomniac's way of saying they think the Wii is a fad?

Does Zephyr overheat?
