Mega Man 9, then this is it. Developed by the students that created de Blob (the original, not the still-awesome-looking THQ game set to release on Wii), Swords & Soldiers is "a sidescrolling real time strategy game." It features three different factions, all "battling for the powers of the gods." The game will be comprised of a single-player campaign mode, as well as support for a splitscreen multiplayer mode (local only, though). It's also promised to include "several other game modes."
Look for Swords & Soldiers to hit WiiWare in all regions during Q4 of this year. Be sure to check out the first screens in our gallery below. The artistic style is amazing.
