Neil Young, EA's LA studio manager (not the aging hippy bard) has let it slip today that little-known movie director, Steven Spielberg, is working on an exclusive-to-Wii title for the publisher.
Young said, "I can't really share any game details, but recall our original announcements was for three projects. Well, two of those are underway right now in the studio. The first one, what I can tell you is what you'd expect, sort of, from a Steven Spielberg production. Steven's stories are intimate stories that take place around huge, world-changing events... sort of, big stories shown through the eyes of a small group. Doug Church is producing it...”
Young added, "The second project is something Lou Castle is producing, one of the great producers in this industry, and that's one of the products we're building for the Wii. Very exciting and interesting... Steven's in the studio once a week, usually from one to four hours, stops by 8:30 and leaves midday and spends a good amount of time with us. It's a very close, collaborative relationship... it's wonderful... he's a wonderful guy, incredibly creative... it's a learning experience working with Steven..."
More on this as we get it. What the Wii needs more than anything right now is an epic new adventure for Nintendo fans to start getting excited about. Perhaps this may be it?
