Sega Reveals New Wii Exclusive

SEGA Bringing A 3D Fighting Game To The Wii

February 3, 2010 In a surprise move, SEGA has announced a Wii-exclusive 3D fighting game called Tournament of Legends.

The game is being developed by High Voltage, the company behind The Conduit. Only recently SEGA announced that it would be giving up on publishing ‘mature’ Wii titles, so this new development has caused a few eyebrows to be raised.

According to the SEGA press release, Tournament of Legends will offer a ‘rich weapon fighting experience’ featuring characters based on mythological legends, such as a minotaur, gladiator and valkyrie. Various bonus modes will include ‘dodging giant mythological creatures’.

Eric Nofsinger, COO of High Voltage was quoted in the press release, saying, “With Tournament of Legends, we want to take Wii weapon-based fighting to a bigger place. Along with a wide selection of blade weapons and animated magic attacks, we’ve achieved rich graphical effects and detailed, epic characters with the Quantum 3 engine. The mythological characters are some of the biggest 3D playable characters on the Wii.”

Tournament of Legends is scheduled for a May, 2010 release on the Wii.

We’ll bring you more information on this title as we receive it, but for now, check out the screens below for some Wii fighting goodness.
