The recent announcement that Manhunt 2 would be available on Wii was something of a surprise, since the game is likely to be extremely violent. When approached for comment, Nintendo's Senior Director of Corporate Communications (nice title) Beth Llewelyn stated:
"Manhunt 2 is not developed or published by Nintendo. It's one of the many titles released by third party publishers for our system that appeal to people of all ages and interests. Just as with movies, television and books, different video games appeal to (and are appropriate for) different audiences".
She also encouraged video game retailers to follow the ESRB ratings when selling software, and for parents to utilize the Wii's Parental Control features if they are concerned.
