  • Zack & Wiki 2 sequel possible says the creator of the Wii adventure

    Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure for WiiThe Wii-exclusive point-and-click adventure Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure filled every nook and cranny of the game disc with smart puzzles that were so rewarding to solve our Zack & Wiki review rated the game 9 out of 10. With an average Gamerankings score of 86% out of 38 reviews, fans of the game are now asking themselves “Will we see a Zack & Wiki 2 sequel?

    Capcom Producer on Zack & Wiki, Hironobu Takeshita, was interviewed last year about the game. During this interview he was asked if he sees Zack & Wiki become one of Capcom’s banner franchises with sequels or if it’s a one-time game only. To this Mr. Takeshita replied: “First of all, I’m very happy to be asked that question. So, for us making Zack & Wiki was a very new way of making games in that it forces you to use your head, to get inspiration to use the puzzles, and also use your body in order to physically control [the game]. So it’s a very new way of making games. I have a lot of confidence in Zack & Wiki, and especially the foreign media [outside of Japan] seem to have a lot of hope and respect for the title. So of course it depends on how it sells, and the sales of the title, but that is something I would like to do, to turn it into a series.

  • Zack & Wiki has sold only 35,000 units in the US in its release month, November 2007. And in the UK it reaching #17 in the all format games charts during its first few days on sale in January 2008. So unless the game keeps selling at a steady pace or increases popularity through word-of-mouth, it’s unsure if we’ll see a sequel. All I can say is “Try it out!” because it’s a really inventive challenging game to play and deserves any success it can get. UPDATE: On June 2nd 2008, Capcom confirmed Zack & Wiki sold 300,000 units worldwide! So the chances for a sequel are looking better.

    In the following video interview you can see what else he said about the storyline of the original Zack & Wiki game, the success of the Nintendo Wii, and the possibility of future sequels in the Zack & Wiki world.

    In March 2009 Capcom Product Manager Colin Ferris added: “Well, you know, Zack and Wiki…Another one in a long line of very highly rated Capcom games that unfortunately did not sell very well. We can take a part of the blame on ourselves by having it star a shirtless boy pirate. That is actually a personal favorite of a lot of people in Capcom, so don’t be surprised if you see it again but we have nothing in the works at the moment.”

      Someone has to make some zack and wiki funy pics and postthem on youtube or something.

    • Patrick M.

      Lets face it. No zack and wiki 2 EVER! Capcom hate this game. I may never buy another capcom game again.

      Love this game. Bought it originally for my 10 year old son because it looked like a good game for him to get used to the controls on his new Wii console. Watched him play the first level and thought it was a bit babyish (cute figures, baby talk etc) so walked away. However, watched him a few days later when he was a few levels further on and got hooked! Some of the puzzles are really difficult and take a while to figure out.

      I’ve just finished the game 1st time around, and I’m now trying to work out the clues to the hidden treasure (without cheating by looking it up on the web). Excellent! I would definately be 1st in the queue to buy the sequel if Capcom were smart enough to make one.

      Be warned… this game is VERY addictive!

    • Diane

      By the way, if Capcom do happen to visit this site and decide to make a sequel, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE have an option to play left-handed! Very frustrating trying to turn a handle with my right hand when my brain is shouting WRONG HAND, WRONG HAND!

      P.S. For the previous post writer, think maybe Rose secretly fancies Zack!

    • Patrick M.

      MUST HAVE ZACK AND WIKI SEQUEL OR I MIGHT DIE. How old are the characters in this game anyway. I know Wiki is like over 300 years old or something, mabey more. Jhonny style is probably 35 (in rabbit years that is.) Zack is a midget (Which exsplains his voice.) so his age is undetermined. Rose is just a bratty pre-teen and her age is also undterermined. Barboros is over 100, and scence he and Wiki were once partnersc Wiki is probably 100 to which cancles out 300 years old. Also if they make a sequel they should have all the characters from the last one and Barboros as the main villan scenceche swore vengance on Zack, Wiki , Jhonny, and Rose for imprisoning him. And they should use moition plus to play it.
      What do you guys think.

    • Patrick M.

      Also I was pretty suprised that the game had some sword fighting.
      Who knew ZAck was so good with a sword:)!

    • Patrick M.

      I also have something interesting to point out a bout the game cover.
      If the whole point of the game is to geta new ship then why are the searabits rideing in a SHIP on the cover!? Is it thier old ship?

      Capcom should make a sequel simply because this game has become somewhat of a cult classic now. People LOVE it once they try it, and I believe people would buy a sequel in droves. They’d fly off the shelves.

      It’s one of the only non-girly games my 5 year old daughter would play (she scares easily) with me, and SHE actually got to think and figure out some of the harder puzzles with me, which made her feel great and I got to shower her with praises for figuring things out. You can’t put a price on that kind of family interaction/learning. It really IS that good.

      I can’t say enough good things about this game, and I’m constantly telling Wii owners they must have it. It’s amazing.

      Yes, get past the first few cutesy “how to” levels and you’ll love it. Hopefully in a sequel they would make more things easily “skippable”, or have an option to skip all the “help” videos and skip over some of the mandatory animations. Because once you’ve played it more than once (and you WILL!), you really don’t need to see all those things every time.

      If you don’t have the game yet, GO GET IT! Best Wii experience EVER! :-)

      I bought and enjoyed Z&W so I hope there will be a sequel.

      First few stages were maybe too simple, but as soon as the head scratching started I was sold on the game! Solving the puzzles perfectly felt very rewarding and it’s a rare sensation these days :)

      It’s sad that there aren’t many good games for 26 year old men like me, but I think this was perfect! I didn’t mind the supposed “kiddie theme” at all (I think something like Arkham Asylum is more childish than this)

    • HardRocker

      this was an incredibly fun game, i beat it within a week! i LOVED the puzzles and i would LOVE a sequel, plus the ending definitively says that there will be a sequel in the future
