12th February 2010
, the world’s best selling ‘Action/Adventure
Sniper Simulator’ is being brought to the Nintendo Wii
by UK publisher Reef Entertainment.
The original Sniper Elite
was launched in 2005 on PS2, Xbox and PC and quickly set the
standard for in-game sniper techniques and bullet physics which
influenced games such as Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Unreal
Peter Rezon, CEO of Reef Entertainment said; ‘The Nintendo
platform has been very good for Reef and we will continue to
develop innovative and unique games for it. Following on from our
recent launches of Free Running
& Rogue Trooper: Quartz Zone Massacre
, we are incorporating features to ensure that Sniper Elite
will be an essential purchase for all shooter
version of Sniper Elite
makes full use of the Wii’s control system with
movement and gestures, is compatible with the Wii Zapper, and
contains new levels and a raft of additional features, making this
game one of a kind.
Peter concludes, ‘Sniper Elite
represents our most ambitious project yet. We have taken a
game which has been called ‘the Gran Turismo of War
Games’ and we will fully immerse gamers into Berlin 1945.
Rifle add-ons such as the Wii Zapper have been a primary focus to
make the game as realistic and exciting as possible. We believe
this will be one of the most fun shooter titles launched in
on Nintendo Wii
will be launched Q2 2010.
