Then, what would the benefit of the Wii version?
Better sales. A port being cheaper even after developing a new engine.
Likely added content.
Also, I heard the development costs for the game were actually pretty high since they developed an all new state of the art HD engine for it.
Really it would of been better had the game just came out on Wii to begin with. It likely would of been a better game in general or they would of had money to advertise since they wouldn't of needed to spend on the HD Graphics.
I mean.... I don't know if you've noticed but Graphics aren't usually high on the list of a SRPG fans list.
I mean we're used to having Ogre Battle SNES style pudgey character graphics... for games out even in this generation! (Disgaea 3.)
Unless a game is heavily physics based or has a strong online component most games would probably benefit from being on the wii.
Even games like Killzone 2 which are supposed to be awesome... lack options like splitscreen and co-op... and online splitscreen.
What's up with that? Spending less on graphics to put in features people care about... and will give them value past 5 minutes of "wow this looks cool!" would of been great.
