Baroque is one of the more interesting Wii releases (also coming to the PS2) on the horizon, as an action RPG with a somewhat-dark tone to it that actually incorporates death into the overall gameplay structure. Thus we were saddened to learn that Atlus has decided to delay the title just a bit, as it will now ship on March 18th. According to Atlus, the move was made solely to allow both versions to ship the same day, although that does place it dangerously close to the wake that will be left by Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Brawl on March 9th.

A long with the revised release date, Atlus passed along a few juicy details about the Wii version that are sure to please Nintendo fans, including:

  • 16:9 Widescreen support
  • Progressive Scan support
  • Subtle motion control integration for power attacks
  • Intuitive controls using Wii Remote and nunchuk
  • Classic Controller support for traditional play

Finally, the company has updated the official website for the game, most notably with new details on the game's many items. You'll find that update here.
