You're the Wii that I want

You're the Wii that I want

You better shape up, cause.. publishers 505 have acquired the rights to distribute a video game based on the Grease franchise. It will hit both the Wii and DS.

Well known characters from the film like Danny, Sandy, The Pink Ladies and the T-Birds will be included with all the songs. The game is said to support a microphone peripheral so you can assume a lot of singing will be involved. 505's Ian Howe commented:

"We're really excited about working with Paramount to turn this world famous film into a game for the very first time. Working with such a well known and loved brand is a fantastic opportunity and we believe the collaboration further strengthens 505 Games' entertainment portfolio".

Development is being handled by Zoe Mode. No release dates are known as yet.

Most of the kids don't know about grease. I do, but I don't think most people born after 1995 will know much about it.

Of course they'll know what 'Grease' is, that's like saying most people born after 1950 knows what 'The Wizard of Oz' is.

I don't know. A lot of schools still do grease as a play. My sister is pretty young and she loves grease. I think it will probably still be remembered. But I still don't really like big franchise games so I'm not that interested.

Oh my. Doesn't look good. Another movie game, from the past, that will fail on the Wii.
