EA has announced that the Godfather: The Don’s Edition is headed for the PlayStation 3, while the Godfather: Blackhand Edition is headed for the Wii. Both games will include some new contents not found in the original Xbox 360 and PS2 versions. Expect them to ship in March.
On the PS3, The Don’s Edition of the game will take “full advantage” of the Sixaxis controller, though EA was vague as to the specifics. The Don’s Edition will also include added gameplay in the form of “The Corleone Expansion Pack.” As of press time, EA had not responded to requests for comment on exactly what the expansion pack contains, or if, when, and how it would be made available to owners of other versions of the game. For Wii owners, the Blackhand Edition of the game will have elements of its gameplay redesigned around the system’s controller. Players will use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in conjunction to beat down opposing thugs, or use weapons to pick off enemies from a distance by pointing directly at onscreen targets.
