    IGN's Matty C is teasing Wii owners with the following pic. The game in question is said to be a ground up Wii game that will be revealed at E3, it may well be a mature title also, on the evidence of what he says on his blog.

    ...but at the very least, there seems to be a lot of red in that blurred-out picture. And you know what fuzzy red means, right? Yep -- teh maturez.


    This is a Wii exclusive game. Developed from the ground up.

    I hope I'm wrong in seeing some dodgy "mature" (read: overly violent with little substance) arena beat 'em up with gladiators. Please?

    Well, it can't be Eternal Darkness 2. That was the first game that came to mind, even though I'm not seeing anything in the picture that would really lead me to believe it would be. I guess that was just wishful thinking on my part.

    Now that you've said something, i cant see why it couldn't be. I mean, the blood stands out a little more than it did in the GC version, but styles change

    Note he just said Wii game... It might be something from an indie dev or something, not a huge publisher or Nintendo themselves... I'm done with IGN if it's another underwhelming cocktease that ends up disapointing... Just show the damn news, don't hype it if it's not worth it. If that's all you wanna do, hype shit up, do it to worthy Wii games. Help CAPCOM reach the Western audience with MH3 by doing some features or something, explaining what the franchise is about and what people can expect from it. Try to get stories about SPyborgs. Try to see what else HVS is working on. There's so much to do than hype crap...I hope I'm wrong and it's something cool this time...And tangible, not like Kid Icarus, lol...

    Um, that image is not Barbarian on the C64 (where do people come up with such random stuff?), it's an image drawn by a NeoGAF member trying to draw what he saw of the distorted image. But yes, he's probably pretty damn close, aside from some details like fins on the helmet and spikes on the gauntlet. It's pretty much the same thing I see when I look at it, except I can't draw. This is Barbarian:

    Why would they tease Overlord when it's had like what, 3 trailers, game footage from a couple of different shows, and other media?

    Dude. Silicon Knights, the company that made Eternal Darkness is now working under Microsoft.  That's why it's not happening. And as RowdyRob found above, it's Barbarian. Good find, dude!

    It's not Barbarian... the "Barbarian" image is not even a Barbarian image. It's also not the same image that is distorted. It's a ground-up creation of a NeoGAF member trying to make it how he thinks the image is undistorted. Good approximation but not the original. Nor Barbarian.

    Because the Wii gets good shit like these. Though, nobody's getting his hopes up anyway, since it's IGN.

    Looks Mortal Kombat-ish to me, but it couldn't be, considering Midway's current situation. Hopefully it's not some random shitty game.

    Another concept of what it could be showing.

    This one reminds me of a re-imagined Dynamic Slash:

    Or it could be that Bethesda game.

    That last screenshot looks great and it's still early in development. I know it'll look good in motion eventually but have to see the gameplay...

    Also, since it's a beat 'em up style game I hope they have some very robust campaign options that go beyond simple Arcade mode stuff...
