Default Broken Sword Director's Cut coming in March!?

While looking through the Q1 release list for the Wii and DS, I noticed this for both Wii and DS:

Quote:
Ubisoft:
Broken Sword™: Shadows of the Templars (Director's Cut) - March
Did anyone know about this beforehand?!? Was there any news at all outside a few rumors?

Hype increasing!

I'd be more excited if it were available for the PC.

Ditto. I, for one, ain't gonna buy a DS or Wii just for one game. Hopefully if it sells well on those consoles, a PC port may come out. It should do anyway. Broken Sword started/belongs on PC.

Saw this too and wondered the same thing. Very weird. Oh well, the more adventures on the Wii and DS the better!!

Sigh. This *does* look intriguing.

Default Ubisoft plans to release “director’s cut” verson of Broken Sword.

Albeit, for Wii and DS. New graphics look promising, though.

well as a ds owner who would like to see a good ds game can not wait for this it looks good to say the least. The ds has got some good games but not enough in my view with good gameplay, story and length. hotel dusk has been the best so far and runaway isn't a bad port from pc. I just hope that they continue the game series as 4 was such a dissappointment at the end.

I'll be buying the best version...or both. Probably both -- there's no way I'm missing out on extra story

Has it been confirmed that Steve Ince is helping out with the new scenario?

Not sure about Steve Ince, but Barrington Pheloung (the composer) has returned apparently.

They sure know how to flog a dead horse.

What about a new game.

I for one think that - and I know some will disagree - the DS is the natural home for traditional adventure gaming now. The only thing is it is unlikely to have a voice track. If it's a success there is the possibility of more; I would rather play a new BS game on the DS with the 2D graphics of the first two games than another 3D one for the PC (which presumably requires more work anyway).

I did some work on this version (mostly because I know the game so well) but I didn't really have anything to do with the new parts of the story.

You know what happens to 'new game', its good to remake classic which had potential but i hope the results don't end up like 'new game(s)'.

Cool, thanks for the info, Steve

I, too am of the opinion that DS is the best console for point and click titles, with the only down side being cart space (I think DS games are generally 1 gigabit - 128 megabytes). Wii seems like a great place to play point and click games at first, and I'm a believer that adventure games should be shooting for that casual market (missed opportunity so far), but I honestly don't think that actually pointing at what you want to interact with is all that comfortable. In games like Broken Sword, it can be only a matter of millimeters between one object and the next, which is no problem with a mouse or even the DS' stylus, but with the Wii it can be a bit more finicky -- still highly playable, just less ideal than it may seem.

So yes, I guess I'm excited for the Wii version due to the new, higher-res graphics (the items look nice in the screenshot, and hopefully the game will support 480p and widescreen) but the DS version will be more practical for me and probably more comfortable to play, too.

Yep, i'd much prefer a new game. But the idea behind this game, as others have pointed out, is to generate more interest in adventure games, via the DS and Wii, and get more people into the Broken Sword series. I think if this does well, Revolution should have the funds for a new game. I just hope it's a new IP, but it'll probably be a BS5 or a Beneath a Steel Sky 2.
