Ready at dawn ready for Wii?

October 19, 2007

So we posted about Okami on Wii a few days ago, and apparently the rumors were true. The next logical question any fan of the game will ask himself is, who’s doing the porting, and will they do a good job? The answer was revealed during the same press conference where the Wii version was announced, and the studio taking the reins from Clover is called Ready at Dawn.

Founded by refugees from Blizzard and Naughty Dog, Ready at Dawn’s most recent claim to fame is the PSP version of God of War, subtitle “chains of olympus”. God of War: CoP has received rave previews so far and looks to be one of the best reasons to buy a PSP this season. Their previous outing was also on the PSP, which was a prequel to JakII called “Daxter” that received an editor’s choice award from gamespot.

So what can we infer from these facts? Ready at Dawn are good at making PSP games. Very, very good. Whether or not they can comfortably make the switch to Wii is another question entirely, and the fact that their website states that their “second team” is at work on Okami merits a little trepidation.

Picture above is of Ru Weerasuriya, co-founder of Ready at Dawn. Here’s a few interviews as well if you want to get to know them better.

    They can port PS2 games to a PSP. Good for them. Take away one analog and two shoulder buttons. The Wii is a totally different animal.

    Maybe I am rooting for them to fail. There should be more great games for Wii, but their should be more great games made for Wii. If that makes any sense.

    I’m going to make my 94 Ford Truck a Hybrid now and hope it turns out as well as it did as a fuel burner.

    Doubt it.

    The Wii does need some powerhouse games, as they’re lacking in that area. So hopefully this will lead to that.
