[RUMOR] Sam & Max finally coming to the Wii?

Telltale Games talked about wanting to develop for the Nintendo Wii a long time ago. And a point-and-click adventure like Sam & Max would work great on the Wii. Now, a German press release from JoWood studios announcing Agatha Christie contains the following nugget of info buried somewhere near the bottom.

Quote:
“One of the next projects: Sam & Max. The Adventure of the year, as chosen by the readers of the German ‘PC Games’ (2/2008 issue), Sam & Max will soon be hunting criminals on the Nintendo Wii.”
Google translation of the press release can be found here

Didn't this rumor already circulate once before, and get flatly denied by Telltale?

Games like Sam & Max and Zack and Wiki might actually pull me more towards the Wii. No frantic wiimote wiggling. Just relaxed adventuring.

It can also be played by just about everyone, given that it's system specs are low enough that anything inside of the past like, 7 years should be able to run it. It's hardly bleeding edge software. If you can post to this forum, chances are, your box can run it.

If it's in a press release, is it really a rumor?

For the ability to play it on my couch.

Give me more from Cinq. I want a follow-up in the vein of Hotel Dusk.

Or a portable version of Sam & Max.

Multiple reasons. The press release wasn't about Sam & Max, so we don't have any official confirmation of the game. Also, it was a German-press only press release. Until we get official word from the company in English that the game is coming, it should be considered rumor, or at the very least, "unconfirmed".

I'm really looking forward to King Story from Cinq and Town Factory (which, oddly enough, looks an awful lot like Square's FFCC: Young King and the Promised Land).

Ooo. I didn't know Cinq had its fingers in this yummy pie. I thought it was just Marvelous.

Lucas Arts should release all of their 'point-and-click' quest games for the Wii, like DAY OF THE-effin' TENTACLE. The Wiimote would be a nice replacement for the mouse in those gems, and they would probably sell like hotcakes (or teacakes) on the Virtual Console store at $5 a pop.

Nice idea, but until Nintendo does something about the anemica 512MB internal memory, there's no chance it'll happen. While DoTT might fit, others wouldn't, without a drastic reduction in content.
