Despite demonstrating the weak financial prospects of the mature Wii game market, MadWorld caught many people's attention, for some rather obvious reasons. And while the market for ultra-stylized, over-the-top violent and gory Wii games has yet to hit its commercial stride, director Shigenori Nishikawa is pulling for a sequel somewhere down the line.
"I think MadWorld was very well received and was acknowledged for its innovative graphical style and gameplay. We would definitely be interested in making a sequel in the future,” Nishikawa reveals in the upcoming issue of Official Nintendo Magazine.
It isn’t that surprising to hear a developer say they’d like to see another installment in a franchise they’re particularly proud of, but this is one case where the financial realities of a sequel and the creative ambitions of a developer are in direct opposition. Not that a sequel is completely out of the question, of course, but it probably won’t be seriously considered until a steady stream of popular mature Wii games are released.
