Milton Keynes, UK — 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, and independent game developer Rebellion today announced that they will be bringing smash hit Sniper Elite V2 to Nintendo’s new Wii U™ console with all new controls and a level of interactivity only possible with the Wii U™ GamePad touch screen.




Players will enjoy the same thrilling, 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 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 places an emphasis on learning to handle the anticipation and pressure of the hunt and using skill, patience and cunning in order to achieve mission goals. Featuring detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, gamers must use their environments and take into account gravity, wind, aim stability and more. The celebrated “kill cam” from Sniper Elite makes its return and is more gratifying than ever - skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion sequence of the bullet running its full trajectory before the target is rendered in graphic x-ray detail, showing the bullet entering the body and causing lethal damage.




Developed by Rebellion, Sniper Elite V2 will be releasing for the Nintendo Wii U™ system in Spring 2013 and was previously available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and is rated 15 by the BBFC. The Windows PC version is available for download at http://store.steampowered.com/app/63380/

This could possibly be the only WWII game the console could see, judging by recent trends.

If it's not Call of Duty, it's probably bad.

Neat, I remember playing the Xbox 360 demo but never actually buying the game itself. I kinda wish it wasn't priced at $50 (would have preferred more around $30 to $40), but I'd like to get it at some point. Seems to have been a bit of a sleeper hit (got good reviews, but didn't sell too great on any platform).

I'm hoping the Wii U version has the "snipe the Fuhrer" DLC included on disc, because, hey, I want to have the opportunity to hunt and take down a virtual Hitler. :P
