    If you read through the news forum yesterday you have no doubt read the post regarding Ubisofts announcement of developing 7 game titles for the Wii.

    Well today they've announced exactly what those titles are.

    The 7 actually include the already announced Red Steel and Rayman Raving Rabbids titles with the addition of:
    • Far Cry
    • Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII, a military dog fight sim
    • Monster 4x4 World Circuit, a truck racer
    • Open Season, an adventure game based on the upcoming CG film by Sony Pictures Animation
    • GT Pro Series, a new racing IP
    All titles are scheduled for release in the launch window and is a pretty impressive line-up from a 3rd party developer. Ubisoft also mentioned they have many more titles in development for the Wii console.

    I remember a few months back reports of not many 3rd party developers getting on board with the Wii console, but by the sounds of Ubisofts enthusiasm i dont think this is the case anymore.

    IGN have posted up an interview with Ubisofts North American President, you can read the article here

    Gosh this is great/terrible news. Now launch day is going to be even more difficult because I'll have to pick from so many great games!!!:D

    Wonder if these will be online? IGN asked Ubisoft and they said to stay tuned for that info. You're killing me slowly, Ubisoft.

    IGN has 2 pics from Monster 4x4 Does anyoneelse think Wii will have lots of racing games.
    List of what we know:
    Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam
    Excite Truck
    Monster 4x4
    GT Pro Series
    New Mario Kart very likely
    New F-Zero game likely


    I just hope they're all different for each other and a lot of fun.I know F-Zero would be the hardest of the bunch.

    Well, welcome to WiiChat!!! Don't worry, you're new here and thus you can not be made fun of, atleast by me.:D

    Anyway, yes, Red Steel is supposed to have atleast 2-player split-screen, says Ubisoft (sorry, can't find on IGN where I read this, but it's a given).

    They've also said multiplayer, which could mean 2-4 player split-screen and many are guessing it will have online play.

    Hope that helps.

    Gosh, that would be awesome! Have your friend over and you both could maybe have different weapons, like one has better close range guns while the other has like a sniper rifle and as for non-guns, maybe one person could have a sword while the other could have a wooden staff.

    Maybe they'll have some drive by levels where one person will drive while the other shoots, or something?
