BIGBEN RIDES OFF INTO THE SUNSET WITH WESTERN HEROES

London, UK– 6th October, 2010– International publisher Bigben Interactive has today invited younger gamers to saddle up and ride out for the fastest light gun duel to end them all, Western Heroes. Released exclusively for Nintendo Wii, Western Heroes will be bundled with a unique Wii Remote and Nunchuck compatible rifle peripheral– based on the famous Winchester rifle– when it is published this November.

In a setting inspired by the great Spaghetti Westerns of the 20th century, Western Heroes tells the story of four seasoned compadres on a mission to foil the devious plans of the sinister Molina, who threatens to turn the rugged prairies into an industrial wasteland. Up to four players at a time will blast their way through classic‘Wild West’ scenarios including a steam train, a cattle ranch, an old mine and many more. Completing story mode chapters will unlock additional challenges and survival mode levels for extended play to test players’ accuracy and reactions.

The accompanying rifle peripheral is unique to the game, having never been available in the UK before. Its innovative design houses the Wii Remote in the barrel and the Nunchuck in the stock to provide an added level of immersion to budding cowboys and cowgirls. The gun’s lever action beneath the trigger will reload in-game, to replicate the repeater action of‘the rifle that won the West’.

“We are renowned for our innovations in videogame peripherals, but the Winchester is one of the very best we have put our name to,” commented Mark Liddle, Head of UK Business Developement, Bigben Interactive.“With Western Heroes, we are confident that we have secured the perfect accompanying title to offer a Wild West experience like no other.”

Western Heroes will be published by Bigben Interactive for Nintendo Wii this November.
