Forums - Nintendo Discussion - CRICKET WII - EA, Its happening

EA register Cricket 9 with Australian Classification Board

Posted by Daniel Vuckovic on 02.13.09

Could it finally be happening? Could a Cricket game be coming to the Nintendo Wii? Well, the journey is one step closer with the Australian Classification Board updating today with the title "Cricket 9". The game is currently listed as multi-platform, but like most OFLC entries, that means nothing as the board lists many games that are one-console exclusives as multiplatform anyway. The country of origin for this game is Canada, which could mean EA Canada are behind the title. The team at EA Canada have previously made a range of sports games for EA, however we're not quite sure how popular Cricket is in Canada. We've contacted EA for a response.


I know its been a long wait but its finally here, maybe.

We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

I can't believe it's taken this long....

Awesome. Wii cricket is a no brainer. Motion plus and balance board support is a must.



comes with free plastic cricket stumps? lol

Your source quotes it as multiplatform. Could also be HD-Cricket ... without a Wii-Version.

God I hope so, and I really hope it has WM+ support

They bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience

Finally, I'll be able to play the worst sport ever on my Wii!

Hope it comes to Canada but I've never seen any Cricket games released in NA so far.

Alright, your fielding. Just stand there

 

 

@the cynics, ofcourse its coming for Wii. Timing is pretty obvious when WM+ is shown and we get a new Tennis.
