Bummed out you never got a Rogue Squadron game on the Wii? Maybe you’ll be less bummed out to know that this newly released footage of the project makes it look fun. Or maybe that will just make you more upset. Whatever.
IGN have a trailer for the game, called Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rogue Leaders, which was a compilation of parts of previous Rogue Squadron games remastered (60fps) and retooled for play on the Wii.
While that sounds awful, that’s probably because you’re imagining it using motion controls. But it was also planned to support regular controls, as well as support for the Wii’s steering wheel and… balance board.
There was even a lightsaber fighting game in there (with Miis!). So yeah, this might actually have been really cool!
If you’re wondering what happened to this game, it wasn’t strictly cancelled or anything; the developers, Factor 5, went bust before it would be released, so somewhere is code for a game that’s practically done.
I would very much like to see this code.
