Treyarch is Hyping COD5 for Wii as the Best Shooter on the System

Treyarch seems extremely confident in the Wii version of Call of Duty: World at War. In an interview with videogamer.com, senior producer Noah Heller states:

It’s going to look better than any Wii game I’ve ever seen on the market….

….This will easily [be] the best shooter on the Wii.

The game will run off of a ported down version of the COD4 engine, and will feature co-op, competitive multiplayer, and zapper support. Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia told Joystiq that the Wii version will be virtually identical to the PS3/360 version.

We have dedicated engineers, artists, and designers associated to the Wii platform. So we have a ton of resources, stable platform to start with while we’re making that thing — but it will be the exact experience except for the changes we need to make for the controls and everything else.

Clearly, this statement is highly suspect (given the Wii’s limitations in both online and graphics), but hopefully gamers can expect an experience that is as close to the 360/PS3 version as possible.

Thanks Casper884Light for the heads up!

i think studios are starting to realize that they need to be serious about the wii projects they create. making the game virtually the same and not some crappy ps2 port or a 2 week long developed title seems to be the more of the norm now. the conduit shows that the development community as a whole has been seriously half assing their wii projects. props to high voltage for changing the face of wii gaming.

best shooter on wii?

i’d much prefer: resident evil

and i sure Alone in the Dark has something to say about that…

ok for full disclosure sake, i can’t stand war-parody and opportunism…thats for the dogs in my mind

i feel about those “games” like i feel about flightless birds…

they just shouldn’t exist.

I would enjoy classic controller support as well. Some of us only have a Wii but like to play shooters traditionally as well. It shouldn’t be hard to add a control scheme for it.
