Xbox Action RPG Enclave Reborn On The Wii

TopWare Interactive snagged the IP and trademark rights to 2003 PC and Xbox action RPG Enclave, with plans to revitalize the series, starting with a remake of the original game for the Nintendo Wii.

Enclave was an ambitious action RPG developed by Starbreeze Studios, the team behind The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. Unfortunately Enclave didn't fare nearly as well with the critics as Riddick. As a result, Enclave's dual light and dark storylines and decision-based game mechanics were looked over by many a gamer.

But TopWare Interactive isn't letting the series die. They've grabbed the rights for Enclave and plan to bring it back to life, kicking off with a Wii remake of the original game called Enclave: Shadows of Twilight. The Wii version will feature an enhanced save game system, an interactive tutorial, and both light and dark storylines unlocked from the beginning of the game.

I find it an odd choice of franchises for TopWare to snag, but I suppose it beats trying to come up with a completely original IP.

No word yet on when the game is coming out, and yes, I called TopWare to make sure this wasn't an April Fool's joke.
