Ubisoft this week at E3 announced that it’s currently developing a game exclusively for the launch of Nintendo’s new Wii U console. Created by Ubisoft Montpelier, Killer Freaks from Outer Space is a revolutionary new first person shooter that Ubisoft says has inspired it to develop an entirely new take on the FPS genre.
“When we realized the potential of what Nintendo was offering by creating a tactile controller, we were off and running immediately,” said Xavier Poix, managing director of Ubisoft’s France studios.* “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.”In the game, vicious and insane hordes of Killer Freaks from Outer Space have invaded the planet. As one of the world’s last survivors, it’s up to you to stalk the Killer Freaks across the globe to determine who will rule the earth. As with many of the Wii U games announced so far Killer Freaks is definitely one for the hardcore gamers, with plenty of shocks. Very exciting stuff!
“When Nintendo launches a new console, it’s always a big milestone for the industry and a great opportunity for creativity,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive office at Ubisoft.* “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.”The game will be available at the launch of the Wii U, sometime in 2012.
