Nice to see some of the inspiration behind BG&E. Makes sense, too. Man, I'd love to interview Michel myself. I'd love to know what exactly he was thinking when he made BG&E, and his plans for the new one.

Here is some alleged leaked footage of BG&E2. Personally,I think it's at least partially pre-rendered. Jade doesn't quite look natural relative to the camera movement.
And speaking of which, it's just as well if the game never appears on the Wii. That kind of camera movement would make me sick. It's bad enough that the lousy "hand held" camera style is all over TV and movies, but I hate that it's wobbling its way into video games, as well. [/rant]
I'm not really surprised by this news, based on comments by Laurent Detoc in an interview with Industry Gamers last month:
IG: Most publishers make decisions based on sales, so what made Ubisoft decide to pursue Beyond Good and Evil again?
LD: Well, I didn't say there's definitely going to be another game. I said something had leaked, which means we've been working on some Beyond Good and Evil stuff, but whether there's going to be another game or not, that's something for the future. But getting to your question as to why there's work on the IP again, it's a creative people business; the creative talent is interested in it and possibly exploring how to do it from a new angle.
Well, prompted by another forum I frequent, I wrote an open letter to UBI Soft. Comments would be appreciated here or there. The more people who speak up about BG&E2, the more UBI Soft will notice. ^_^
Beyond Good and Evil 2 may have been postponed to the next generation of consoles. Sauce.
I don't speak frog, so I'll take you at your word. A shame, though, BG&E2 would have been a remarkable installment for the current generation...
This is even worse by the fact that the current consoles (well, the PS3 and the 360) are going to last a lot longer than console generations typically do. We've hit a peak in technological capabilities, so there's no reason to shuffle them away right yet.
