The guys over at Beamdog have answered some fan questions about the upcoming Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition. There will be a higher level cap coded into the game.
A bad time with Nintendo means no Wii U. A boxed copy is possible to compliment the digital launch. There's plenty of language localisation going on. No more than 6 to a party.
These juicy scraps of Baldur's Gate meat were thrown out by Beamdog's president of publishing. Enemy AI will remain a pain in your PC RPG rear even with the new content.
There's to be greater voice talent for the new planned content. Jim Cummings will return to voice Minsc if they're given new lines. Mod support is improved although updates for BGEE will be slower than originally thought by Beamdog. No they won't be doing an enhanced Ultima, and it would take heavy effort for Baldur's Gate 3.
The Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition codebase could be used on Icewind Dale if BGEE is a success. It doesn't seem there'll be any love for Nintendo anytime soon: "The result is a belief that Nintendo isn't a good platform for developers. The Wii is a toy, not a console," Beamdog president, Trent Oster, on their experience with them.
