Dead Space for the Wii a reality
I think I’m one of the few people who loves playing first person shooters and other shooting type game mechanics on the Nintendo Wii. I say few because there are still some people who criticize the Wii-mote for shooting. But it is quite evident in the Wii version of Resident Evil 4 that the Wii-mote brings more realism to aiming and shooting with Nintendo’s revolutionary controller.
That’s why I’m quite stoked about the announcement that Dead Space is going to be released on the Wii. The announcement officially came from Electronic Arts. The game will be made available sometime this year and will be officially titled Dead Space Extraction.
Here’s the official EA description of the game. According to the company Dead Space Extraction will “marry the innovative motion controls of the Wii Remote with a frenetic first-person perspective to create a new action-packed horror experience.” The Wii game looks like it’s going to be a different game from the one that appeared in the PS3, Xbox 360 and the PC. It will feature a new heroine who, in the story, will join with space colonists who are trying to escape the infection that has spread through the Aegis VII mining colony. It will have new weapons, new puzzles to solve and for the first time — a co-op multiplayer mode.
EA has assured that the Wii version of the game will not be “kidified” just because it is going to appear in the family-oriented Wii console. EA has assured that all of the blood, gore and violence that was in the first Dead Space game will also be included in Dead Space Extraction.
Can’t wait to play this!
