SNIPER ELITE(TM) TAKES AIM ON NINTENDO WII(TM )
12th February 2010
Sniper Elite TM , the world’s best selling ‘Action/Adventure Sniper Simulator’ is being brought to the Nintendo Wii TM by UK publisher Reef Entertainment.
The original Sniper Elite TM 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 Tournament.
Peter Rezon, CEO of Reef Entertainment said; ‘The Nintendo Wii TM 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 TM & Rogue Trooper: Quartz Zone Massacre TM , we are incorporating features to ensure that Sniper Elite TM will be an essential purchase for all shooter fans.’
The Wii TM version of Sniper Elite TM 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 TM 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 2010”.
Sniper Elite TM on Nintendo Wii TM will be launched Q2 2010.
