Halfway through the year. And we get a Wii RPG finally. YES. You can read the DS version of this thread right here Some rules and stuff. Warning: Spoilers inside! - No flaming. If I list a game you don't like, too bad. If I don't, too bad. - This is mainly North American releases, sorry. I'll, on occasion, do a European or Japanese release if it's big enough and not already out in America. - If a game is already released in English and is being released again for another region, I won't bother adding it. Like say if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was out in America in April (it won't) and it came out in May in Europe, I won't list it for May. I'll also do the same if a game was released in English (aka Europe or America) and is being released in Japan. - I get my dates from GameFaqs, Wikipedia, and IGN, so if a date is wrong don't blame me. You can, of course, point it out and ask me to fix it if you have the right date. Arc Rise Fantasia Developed by: Image Epoch Published by: Ignition Entertainment Release date: June 22nd (America) Genre: RPG My Hype Level: What, the Wii has RPGs? BLASPHEMY. GBAtemp Hype Level: YEAH The Wii has a lot of games from a lot of genres, but what it lacks are RPGs. And for RPGs, it severely lacks straight-up, turn based RPGs. We finally get one that looks worthy, Arc Rise Fantasia, and honestly, I want it. A lot. You guys do too so hopefully it won't blow it. Transformers: Cybertron Adventures Developed by: Next Level Games Published by: Activison Release date: June 22nd (America) Genre: Shooter My Hype Level: Multiplatform title on the Wii, it can definitely suck GBAtemp Hype Level: Meh Honestly, now that I have a Xbox 360, I don't have to deal with the bad versions of multiplatform titles on the Wii. I mean, I'd love to play them on the Wii since I don't actually have to pay for them, but they seem to suck a lot of the time. And it's a shame, since this Transformers game looks pretty awesome, especially on home consoles. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 Developed by: Tiburon Published by: Electronic Arts Release date: June 8th (America) Genre: Sports My Hype Level: *insert Tiger Woods joke here* GBAtemp Hype Level: *insert Tiger Woods joke here* No Tiger Woods jokes. They're old. Anyway, Tiger Woods '10 on the Wii is considered amazing due to its WM+ 1:1 accuracy. Not to mention it had a ton of features and stuff that made it one of the best golf games ever. But in all reality, golf bores the shit out of me, and I couldn't play much PGA '10 without wanting to take a snooze. Still, golf enthusiasts may want to check out this next iteration. Green Day: Rock Band Developed by: Harmonix Published by: MTV Games Release date: June 8th (America) Genre: Music My Hype Level: Should be a different band GBAtemp Hype Level: Meh I don't have any problem with Green Day. I actually think they're pretty good. It's just that they don't need a full band game. And having this be the "successor" to The Beatles game is kinda a letdown. But let's face it, it's got a pretty decent set list and everything, so if you're a Green Day fan, you can have a good time with this. Xenoblade Developed by: Monolith Software Published by: Nintendo Release date: June 10th (Japan) Genre: RPG My Hype Level: Fuck, it's in Japanese GBAtemp Hype Level: ^ Couldn't find any boxart, sorry. Anyway, the Wii is suddenly getting a flood of RPG titles, and Xenoblade is one of them. Unfortunately, I doubt it'll be localized and a fan translation, if there is one, could take a long time. It's looked great so far though and if you speak Japanese, you'd be a fool to not play this game. Other titles - Rabbids Triple Pack: 6/4 (Europe) - Samurai Warriors 3 (Australia) (I did a write-up a while ago) - Toy Story 3: 6/15 (America) - Sin and Punishment: Star Successor: 6/27 (America) (I did a write-up a while ago so don't bitch about "WHY IS THERE NO WRITE UP") - Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4: 6/29 Overall Summary Arc Rise Fantasia and Xenoblade headline this month, with Transformers and the next Tiger Woods game looking relatively alright. Green Day: Rock Band may actually be fun, but we still should've had a different band. It's a quiet month, but blame that on Nintendo for delaying Metroid: Other M. Really, there's like nothing in July. We get Tournament of Legends, High Voltage's next "big" Wii title (although I'll say it honestly looks pretty meh). Most everything else looks bleak. Have a nice June!
