Ubisoft unveils new Wii U exclusive
9th Jun 2011 | 09:01
Ubisoft's announced 'Killer Freaks From Outer Space', an exclusive game for the Nintendo Wii U.
Developed by Ubisoft Montpelier, the bizarrely named title is described as "a revolutionary new first person shooter."
The game involves vicious and insane hordes of Killer Freaks from Outer Space invading the planet, as the title suggests.
Players fill the boots of one of the world's last survivors and must stalk the Killer Freaks "to determine who will rule the earth," says Ubisoft.
It looks as though, in one mode at least, the game will see two player action with one player using a classic controller on the big screen while the other dictates enemy play from the Wii U controller screen.
"When we realized the potential of what Nintendo was offering by creating a tactile controller, we were off and running immediately," said managing director of Ubisoft's France studios Xavier Poix.
"Having that extra screen in the hand of the player allows us boundless innovation that ultimately gives the player a more beautiful game, a faster game interface, a personalized game experience, and so much more."
Ubisoft also seems confident that 'Killer Freaks' will bring plenty to the table for hardcore gamers.
"When Nintendo launches a new console, it's always a big milestone for the industry and a great opportunity for creativity," said Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot.
"Killer Freaks will make the most of all the fantastic capabilities of the Wii U and provide hardcore players with a gaming experience like no other they have seen or played before."
