It seems Telltale Games, the fine folks in charge of the latest Sam & Max adventure, wanted some attention from Nintendo to possibly bring Sam & Max to the console following an innocent comment made at PAX that generated some solid buzz for the idea. Well, sure enough, Nintendo contacted the group and talks to bring the title to the Wii have, we assume, begun.
Personally, we here at Wii Fanboy are hoping an agreement is met. Not only would this title pave the way for future adventure games on the Wii, but also set a precedent for episodic content on the console right from the gate. Considering how quickly Nintendo contacted Telltale, we're fairly certain that this will turn out to be a very good thing for all of us.
