Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U version overseen by Shoot Many Robots studio
Posted by max at June 4th, 2012
Don’t count out that Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines, despite Gearbox pushing its launch to an unknown spot beyond the 360/PS3/PC version’s February 2013 date. Gearbox head Randy Pitchford says that Shoot Many Robots studio Demiurge Games has been overseeing the Wii U version for the past nine months, alongside both Nerve and Timegate.
Pitchford couldn’t speak to many specifics of the game, but he did extol the Wii U controller. “When I play with the controller, I immediately realize that for the types of games I like to play and make, this is the best controller I’ve ever had from Nintendo.” He also teases one potential use for the WiiPad, saying, “For Aliens: Colonial Marines, it’s really exciting to have that screen there because I can do things that are very unique to this universe. For instance, we have a motion tracker in this universe. Now our motion tracker can literally be in our hands and we can see and hear it -and scan the room in 360 degrees, since it’s a motion device.”
Aliens: Colonial Marines launches on February 13, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The Wii U version is expected some time beyond that date.
