Aliens: Colonial Marines finally gave us something in the way of an asset with the teaser trailer below. While we have been waiting forever to hear anything at all. Then, Nintendo drops their bomb about the Wii U, and now, it would seem the 2 may be joining forces. Sega and Gearbox announced today that ACM is being prototyped and considered for the Nintendo Wii U. I’ve got to say, it sounds like an awesome launch title if you ask me.
“We are extremely thrilled about the potential of the Nintendo Wii U and are honored to be a part of the earliest efforts for research and development on the platform with the Aliens: Colonial Marines project that is so perfectly matched with the platform’s unique and exciting new capabilities,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “As more details about the Nintendo Wii U emerge, Gearbox Software is equipped and motivated to engage and support the platform and its customers.” ACM is set to take place after the movie Aliens as you fight Xenos on USS Sulaco, the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, using weapons inspired by the film series.
“ With such a recognized brand as ALIENS and a renowned developer in Gearbox Software, this really is exciting news for everyone,” said Mike Hayes, CEO at SEGA of America and SEGA Europe. “The Nintendo Wii U opens up an impressive amount of new opportunities for publishers and developers alike and SEGA are fully supportive of this new platform.”
