High Voltage has revealed that it plans to ship The Grinder on Wii as first-person shooter, while maintaining a top-down view on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Speaking with IGN, CCO Eric Nofsinger says the developer is also still looking for a publisher.

“The expansion of Grinder to 360 and PS3 and its subsequent change in gameplay and perspective has been somewhat misinterpreted as a universal change across all platforms,” said Nofsinger.

“We still genuinely love the Wii and would ideally like to see a publishing partner pick up both a FPS Wii version and a third-person action version specific to the 360 and PS3.

“We have invested more than year into the Wii; the game is extremely fun, and frankly, we wouldn’t want to see that work ‘thrown away, but when we decided to add the 360 and PS3 platforms it didn’t seem to make much sense to jump on the rainbow chasing treadmill of trying to do the same game for such dissimilar consoles and end up short changing one or the other.”

The Grinder is out in 2011.
