Tiny Angels coming to Wiis with the help of Gamebryo

Are you keeping up with your South American telenovelas? If so, you've probably heard of Chiquititas. If not, which is probably the case, the show (known in English as Tiny Angels) is a fictional series about a group of orphans in Buenos Aires.

You're probably worriedly wondering what this has to do with the Wii, so let's just rip the band-aid right off. Portugal based developer Biotroid is making a Wii game about the series. Interestingly enough, though, the game is being published by Emergent Game Technologies, who are giving Biotroid access to the Gamebryo engine. In case you haven't been keeping up, that's the same engine that's been powering games like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Civilization IV. Obviously, Emergent is looking to cash in on the success of the popular Argentinian show.

Let's be honest -- we don't have high hopes for this game, which will be a platformer of sorts. Aside from licensed games usually being terrible, Tiny Angels seems like a particularly stupid license to use. But, in some crazy twist of fate, this has the potential to be one of the prettiest titles on the Wii.
