No online for Guitar Hero III on Wii at launch

wiiguitarheroIn an interview with Pro-G, Kai Huang, co-founder and president of RedOctane, revealed that there won’t be outline capabilities for the Wii version of Guitar Hero III at the game’s launch. Among other subjects discussed include ideas for special Wii features and future Guitar Hero games.

Regarding the online situation. Huang said, "There is online for the PS3 and Xbox 360. There won’t be online initially for the Wii, but we are working with Nintendo to see we can get those features in."

But don’t let the news get you down since RedOctane is preparing special Wii-specific features in Guitar Hero III. "The Wii version will be a different experience. We haven’t made any specific announcements on what the differences are, but absolutely we want to take advantage of the Wii-mote and utilise all of its capabilities."

When asked about any hardships for more Guitar Hero material, Huang claimed that RedOctane has loads of material saved up for more songs and tunes.

"Well, we have a lot of new features in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and I think we’re far from exhausting all the ideas that we’ve had – not only for the game but also for the music. A lot of the features in Guitar Hero III haven’t been available in previous versions."

Hopefully it doesn’t take too long for that online to creep in on the Wii.
