Atlus USA just sent over a quick update on its upcoming PS2 and Wii action-RPG Baroque, most notably containing news of a delayed release date and a rundown of the game’s Wii-specific features. Originally slated to ship in February, Baroque has now been pushed back to a launch date of March 18th, mainly to ensure that it’s ready to ship simultaneously on both platforms. Obviously, the delay stems from the Wii version needing a little extra dev time to get its platform-specific features worked in and fine tuned, which as has been revealed today will include 16:9 widescreen support, progressive scan support, motion control power attacks using both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and support for the Classic Controller for those who prefer the traditional control method.

The official Baroque website has also received some recent gameplay and media updates, so don’t forget to drop on by and catch up on all the latest information.
