Platinum Games has chosen Nintendo Wii as the platform for its ultra-violent, black and white blood bath, MadWorld, because “it feels like a game that is at home” on Nintendo’s console.

According to CVG Platinum Games’ Atsushi Inaba said the pick up and play nature of the controversial action game made it a good fit for Wii. “We’re really interested in the Wii platform so we wanted to create a really cool and stylish game for that,” said Inaba.

“As you can see [from our Leipzig presentation] it’s really easy to pick up and play so when we came up with the concept of Mad World the Wii felt like a good console for that. It feels like a game that is at home on Wii.”

MadWorld recently has been in sharp controversy as the game might just alter the so – called family image of Wii. Extreme violence to Nintendo’s otherwise “family friendly” console sounds like a crack, isn’t it?

“Yes, it’s violent. We don’t try to hide that, but as publishers, we see it as a fantasy game – it’s fantasy violence. It’s over the top. It’s cartoony,” Sega marketing man David Corless added

Let’s watch it out for then this much controversial game for Wii.
