Has Nintendo cancelled this arcade-like smash 'em up?
Just one of many games Nintendo unveiled at E3 2006 to showcase the Wii, the arcade-like action game Project H.A.M.M.E.R. received a somewhat mixed reception. While some enjoyed the sci-fi elements of the game and pantomiming the on-screen action with the controller, others thought the game appeared shallow, though all of them noted that it was still in its very early stages. Unfortunately, we may never get a chance to find out what the real truth was.
If sources at video game website IGN are to be believed, Nintendo may have canned Project H.A.M.M.E.R. No reason was given for the possible cancellation of the game. However, IGN’s mystery source claimed that the team previously developing the game is now hard at work on at least one game for the new casual gamer audience that appears to be snatching up Nintendo’s latest system by the truckload.
While it is hard to imagine that the Big N would so callously snub longtime fans, they are still a business, and catering to this expanded audience certainly makes business sense. At this time, Nintendo has not commented on the story, and we may not hear anything until E3 later this year. Until then, we will continue to follow this and keep you up to date, so be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
