505 Games and independent developer Rebellion today announced that they will be bringing smash hit Sniper Elite V2 to Nintendo’s new Wii U console. Featuring all new controls and a level of interactivity only possible with the Wii U GamePad touchscreen, Sniper Elite V2 for Wii U will be available at retail stores this spring.
Players will enjoy the same visceral experience as they guide American OSS agent Karl Fairburne around historical locations throughout Berlin and attempt to unravel the mysteries and dangers of the German V-2 rocket program but now with even greater tactical depth and flexibility thanks to brand new functionality through the GamePad – tag enemies and booby-traps, track enemy locations and activity, even monitor the blast radius of planted explosives – all with a glance at the touch screen and without leaving the battlefield for even a second.
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion said “Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the WiiU. It’s been a challenge to get it right, but thanks to our team and the fantastic support of our partners at 505 Games we believe we’ve brought the unique gameplay to a whole new platform.”
Developed by Rebellion, Sniper Elite V2 will be releasing for the Nintendo Wii U system in Spring 2013 and is already available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Sniper Elite V2 and other titles from 505 Games.
