    I am pretty sure that they "canned" the whole project as a result of some unknown reason. I am not too sure if anything new has surfaced from that point onwards, so yeah, you probably will not see the likes of that game on any shore.

    i dont see why they would cancel production of a game that had so much potential and that would appeal to the hardcore audience as well

    It was cancelled in the US and put on indefinite hold in Japan. They never gave an official reason, but the developer that was making it is working on more "Mainstream" titles now. Looks like nintendo isn't just focusing on casual games, they're actively destroying anything that might be considered hardcore. :/

    Nintendo never really gives anything the permanent axe though, so we may see a family-friendly reimagining of it in a few years time.

    It was first reported that it was cancelled.

    A few months later they took that statement back and reported that they had 'put it on hold' to work on another project.

    It WILL show up on the wii.

    i thought that was just a rumor, maybe we should get a petition to resume development, the psp got a resident evil from a petition...it could work

    Don't ask me for a link becasue I can't find it but...

    I read about a month ago, someone interviewed a spokes person for NST (Project H.A.M.M.E.R. developer) because they were moving and firing some employees. Within the interview they asked about Project H.A.M.M.E.R. and the person said, "It has been put on hold while we work on some other titles." Like LevesqueIsKing and mushroomedmario mensioned.
