505 Games and independent game developer Rebellion today announced that they will be bringing the extremely gory and graphic Sniper Elite V2 to the Wii U with all new controls and a level of interactivity only possible with the GamePad touch screen.
Players will 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. Utilizing the GamePad touch screen, players can tag enemies and booby-traps, track enemy locations and activity, even monitor the blast radius of planted explosives. Thankfully we won’t be subjected to holding the GamePad in front of the television to snipe enemies.
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion said “Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U. 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.”
Sniper Elite V2 will be releasing for the Wii U in Spring 2013 and it’s bringing all of its bloody brain bits along for the ride.
