London, UK– June 9, 2011– Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced the creation of a new intellectual property being developed exclusively for Nintendo Wii U TM. Created by Ubisoft Montpelier, Killer Freaks from Outer Space is a revolutionary new first person shooter (FPS) and will release in conjunction with the launch of the Nintendo Wii U TM.
The groundbreaking new console and controller from Nintendo are the inspirations for a whole new take on the FPS genre in Killer Freaks.
“When we realized the potential of what Nintendo was offering by creating a tactile controller, we were off and running immediately,” said Xavier Poix, managing director of Ubisoft’s France studios. “Having that extra screen in the hand of the player allows us boundless innovation that ultimately gives the player a more beautiful game, a faster game interface, a personalized game experience, and so much more.”
In the game, vicious and insane hordes of Killer Freaks from Outer Space have invaded the planet. As one of the world’s last survivors, the player must stalk the Killer Freaks across the globe to determine who will rule the earth.
“When Nintendo launches a new console, it’s always a big milestone for the industry and a great opportunity for creativity,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive office at Ubisoft. “Killer Freaks will make the most of all the fantastic capabilities of the Wii U and provide hardcore players with a gaming experience like no other they have seen or played before.”
