Ready at dawn ready for Wii?
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.
