Atari has revealed a selection of brand new screenshots taken from the forthcoming Centipede Infestation, set to arrive on Wii and Nintendo 3DS later this year. Centipede Infestation is a re-imagined version of the classic franchise designed specifically for Nintendo’s consoles.
Players will be cast as Max, the hero and bug slayer, who must defend Maisy, a girl whose gardens bring life back to the wasteland that the planet has now become. Squash giant mutated centipedes, spiders, beetles, grubs, caterpillars, moths, and more. Lay waste to these mutated bugs with weapons such as the Lightning Orb Gun, Nuke Cannon, Freezethrower, Mine Launcher, and more. Use the bodies of dead bugs to craft new defences and power-ups like turret guns and barricades, or just crush them with your mighty stomp.
Featuring seven environments, forty stages and five boss battles, Centipede Infestation will provide gamers with more than twenty weapons with which to take on the hundreds of enemies they will face. Centipede Infestation is currently expected to be available later this year, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
