Wii Version of Machinarium Canceled; PS3 Version “the Ultimate Version”

And that’s that. Amanita Design has confirmed to Eurogamer that their indie point and click hit Machinarium will not, after all, be appearing on Nintendo’s Wii console as it was originally confirmed.

According to the Jakub Dvorsky:

“We don’t like Wii because the resolution is so low and there is a size limit on WiiWare of 40MB, which is so low for nowadays,” Dvorský explained. “It’s crazy.”

Bummer for Wii owners.

The good news is that the PS3 version is still very much in its way and it’s been designed to be the best of the best version of the game. Machinarium for PS3 will have Move support for point and click as well as new features such aas zooming in, Trophies, and being overall more “fluent” according to Dvorsky.

We’ll all get the chance to see how well it plays early next year when it’s scheduled for release.
