505 Games has confirmed that Sniper Elite V2 is to make an appearance on Wii U, with the release date set for spring.
As you would expect, the game will be tweaked to make use of the Wii U’s feature set, chief of which is the GamePad. Using it players will be able to, amongst other things, tag enemies and booby-traps and monitor the blast radius of explosives without having to access in-game menus.
“Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U,” CEO of developer Rebellion Jason Kingsley stated. “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 is already available on Xbox 360 and PS3.
