Factor 5 Offically Developing For Wii - True Graphics power of the Wii to finally be shown


"The maker of the hit GameCube series Rogue Squadron is back. In a phone conversation with IGN Wii this morning, company president Julian Eggebrecht confirmed that the studio is underway with at least one all-new Wii project -- and it's not a Virtual Console game. Beyond that confirmation, Eggebrecht was mum, but he did note that the new title would not simply re-use old Rogue Squadron tech; whatever it is, significantly updated or even completely new tech has been developed to help accommodate it."

The above screens are a reminder of the incredible work Factor 5 did on the Gamecube in terms of graphics. Now that they have confirmed Wii support, one can only imagine how much improved their new games will look on the Wii.

Are you a non-believer? Take a look at some previous articles I've posted on the Wii's graphics power:

When I find this on IGN I can belive it. Im so happy now couse I know F5 guys can push Wii graphics and performance to the other galaxy :D
If Wii have similar architecture to GC it will be much easier to them.
I would like to see another RS but other games too like 3D Turrican!

Anything that can show how bad other turd parties have been with their games on the Wii. Factor 5 will no doubt show how to get it done. They could also license their engine to other developers and thus make ALL Wii games look great graphically. Only time will tell, but this is a good start.

I agree, anyone that just throws that statement out there knows nothing about what the Wii is capable of. Let Factor 5 show them.

Perhaps Factor 5 can be a partner at e3 to display the wii's graphic power.
