The Wii is about to get some serious monster fighting action.
It seems Atari is developing Godzilla Unleashed for the Wii, the DS and the PSP for a fall release. The monster title looks pretty darn neat in screen shots for its existing consoles (Xbox and PlayStation 2), but I have to admit the possibilities with the Wii make it sound even better.
As a recent Wii convert (review to come soon), the appeal of a fun, monster mashing fighting game is huge. If the title’s done correctly for the platform, it will be an incredible blast.
The game features Godzilla and a battle to save the planet from a host of nasty beasts.
“We are building on the famous Godzilla franchise by focusing on multiple story paths, devastating urban destruction, and utilizing the most imposing creatures in film history, all in one hard-hitting fighting game,” Rick Mehler, Director, Marketing, Atari, Inc. has been quoted as saying. “In Godzilla: Unleashed for the Wii, players will tap into their inner monster powers when using the system’s wireless, motion-sensing controller.”
The quote is a good cue that Atari is taking the controller into serious account while developing the remix of the title. Here’s hoping, because if it does, the game could be a real hit.
