The official website for the game "Sadness" ,which is to be released in 2007, asks if you are 21 or over before continuing on the website. (Go to Projects, then to Sadness)
Gamespot has information on the game here or you can read it on the official site. The game is going to be entirely in black and white.
It looks like it will be because of the horror aspects of it. This is very interesting as it seems that Nintendo and an AO rating don't really mix. Here is a short description of the game...

That's a possibility. I just don't see how they will sell many of these games, since EB Games, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy refuse to carry AO rated games for consoles. The only possibility I see so far is if they sell it through their site.
First off, Sadness is not a working title for their premiere Wii title. It's the final name. The story takes place before World War I, slated earlier than 1914. In addition, Nibris officially stated that the style for Sadness is meant to be totally unique. It isn't inspired by Sin City, it isn't a "classic comic book feel," it's its own style. In fact, the look it chose is more influenced by the era's black and white cinema. Players should get the feeling of a pre-1920s movie. In addition, Nibris added that Sadness will focus in a Slavic country. Specifics will be released later.
this game could spawn a whole new genre if it rules. kinda like gta spawned so many ripoffs. peace
Fans holding their breath for any new in-game shots might as well pass out now; Nibris has said that they will not publish any screens without the direct approval of their publisher.

BTW, my theory on the game is this:
It's not going to be a conventional game and will actually draw liberally from a long neglected genre: slide show gaming,(ala Myst, Deathgate, etc), except this will allow you to take multiple branching paths maybe with some types of minigames interspersed within.
Just think for a moment. The only way to get photo realistic "game play" is to do it via a slide show technique.
