‘No Intentions of Turning Our Backs’ on Wii, Says Sid Meier

In lieu of the Civilization Revolution demo pioneering its way onto Xbox Live and PSN, I think this story’s very appropriate for anyone still wanting that Wii version.

Put on hold by Firaxis earlier this year, the Wii edition of Civ Revolution sort of…well sounded like an ideal game for Nintendo’s console. Throw in the Wii-mote and it seems like a natural fit into the Wii’s library. The series has never been about pushing the boundaries graphically, though that’s one of the explanations the developer came up with when trying to explain the delay.

Thankfully the project may be still get finished according to Civ-creator Sid Meier himself. “We’re still in the process of making decisions on that and will keep you posted,” he said to GameDaily. “We certainly think the Wii is a fantastic system and have no intentions of turning our backs on it!”

There you have it. I was planning on trying out the demo later tonight, but a Red Ring of Death apparently had its own agenda to attend to. Who’s tried it? Think it’s a faithful adaption to the PC games? Leave a comment!
