    As many of us knew project hammer was on the ice, but now has officially been pronounced as dead, they have cut production totally,

    why?
    apparently due to the fact makers could not come up with a decent acronym

    So its now dead.


    So is anybody gonna miss the idea of it, was anybody wanting it,

    I for one wasnt to excited and doubt i would have given it a shot.



    here is just one link to evidence (i had more but cannot track down them all anymore)

    EDIT : here is another link to more info, not much though

    Can't say it was on my major wants list, but I was interested to see how it turned out before dismissing it.

    Would have been interesting to see a new franchise I suppose. I wonder why this has been canned? Especially with the Wii being such a comercial success, or did Nintendo decide it didn't fit in with their strategy.

    Gah... Couldn't they release the E3 demo or something? I really wanted to play it awhile ago, and still kind of do:crazy:

    There is talk of that production has temporally stalled due to the producers working on other subjects.

    The title is due to become a possibility to be picked up again in the future.

    But now you say it is fully dead?

    Shame.

    Hopefully it will still come out, video and news were so promising.

    its a shame that one of the first wii games got canceled
    i for one was looking foward to it even after the release of the wii
    but my theory is that during the wii mote scare (people braking tvs and other things with their wii mote) they stopped production so the wii wouldn't become a tv killer

    Anyone looking for a similar experience control-wise, should pick up Dragon Blade, set to release the 25th.

    I wasn't too hyped for it, but I do wish more games of the beat-em-up variety would come out for the wii. Dragon blade looks like a playable, if slightly boring, game so I'll pick that up just to support the genre.

    This cancellation was a long-time coming, especially with the lack-luster reviews it got at it's last E-3 showing.

    I dont know how much of your post is true, but I DO know that atleast part of it is BS.

    They DID NOT scrap the game because they couldn't think of a flipping acronym. Is that supposed to be some kind of joke?

    When i was watching some of E307 they had a preview of it- The gameplay looked sorta similar to SoulCalibur Legends.. But it was just a runna long show off- But yeah- It's not on my top's to get either..

    ^I believe that, I just dont believe the reasoning for it.

    The op stated that they cancelled the game because they couldn't think of an acronym (A phrase of words in which the first letter of each word spells H.A.M.M.E.R.)

    Do you really think they would cancel a game that they had already gotten about half way done simply because they couldn't think of a name for it? I don't buy it.

    EDIT: Nintendo News | Famitsu Confirms H.A.M.M.E.R Cancellation

    Quick News: The recent edition of Japanese weekly Famitsu reveals disappointing news for Project H.A.M.M.E.R fans - the report suggests the title has been canned, with nothing suggesting its shelving for a later date.

    Thanks to GameFront



    I DONT THINK IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE NAME THOUGH..

    I was looking forward to it as i was excited to see Nintendo take a more mature direction plus it looked like a decent action game. Everytime Nintendo gets a good exclusive action game under there belt near a system launch they can it. Raven Blade anyone? .....

    Actually (Mr. I know that was Cut & Paste Job) it was a rumor

    We just found out, it was confirmed/anounced whatever...

    Yeah, that is exactly what I heard as well. But the game was never actually on my list of games to buy, so it really doesn't bother me too much.
