Arkedo is looking to start a party on the Wii with a Big Bang.
After two successful releases on the Nintendo DS, Arkedo is setting their eyes on the Wii with a console sequel to Big Bang Mini. Talking to N-Sider, Arkedo President Camille Guermonprez said that his company was "learning the Wii right now" and was hoping for a follow-up to their unique DS shooter that would be "extended and redesigned for Wii and its audience." This would include additional multiplayer modes, as well as a solo-oriented arcade mode revisiting five worlds from the DS original.
Arkedo also teased that the arcade mode might feature a co-operative mode inspired by Super Mario Galaxy. Talking about one idea for the sequel, Guermonprez wondered what would happen if a player's four-year-old daughter wanted to play along. "Does she want to help you fight the baddies," he pondered, "or does she want to have fun tickling them so they can get crazy and annoy you more?"
Guermonprez confirmed that the sequel would control like a horizontal scrolling shooter, however details of the game at this point are scarce because the title is very early in development.
Currently Arkedo is planning to release the game sometime in 2010. While they didn't tell N-Sider the name of the project, earlier this month Yubaba, the music composer of Big Bang Mini, had a 2009 listing under the sound design and music project listings section of their MySpace page for a game referred to as Big Bang Party.
