Wii has been well known for its slick and clean image as so far it has been phenomenal in coming up with games related to family fun mixed with less violence. However this time round to the contrarian, SEGA Wii game MadWorld will “spoil the family fun image” of the console, according to Mediawatch-UK, a British organisation that campaigns for decency in television, games and films.

Wii is going to introduce the ultra violent video “MadWorld”, and also Hack and Slash, gamers can hack using a chainsaw, rip out hearts and impale people. MadWorld is developed by the Platinum Games and is in black and white and only red seems to set the contrast with large amounts of blood thrown in. However, with violence entering Wii, things may soon change for better or for worse in the gaming world. This may encourage other game developers to create more violent games and if that pleases a certain group of people, it also displeases a large number of people.

“It seems a shame that the game’s manufacturer have decided to exclusively release this game on the Wii,” said Beyer. “I believe it will spoil the family fun image of the Wii.””

With Nintendo Wii you never know what’s going to come your way for sure. Until now Wii had built up a reputation as ‘family friendly’. Let’s see where it is headed in the future.
