Thursday, 3rd April (2pm UK)– Putting the urgency into emergency, Codemasters® today announced that Emergency Mayhem™ has gone gold and is set to ship to U.S. retail stores on April 15th with the European/PAL launch on April 18th. Coming exclusively to Wii™, catch the chaos in the new gameplay video now available to view or download from www.codemasters.com/emergency
In Emergency Mayhem , Crisis City is living up to its name and its citizens are panicking. Fires rage, bombs are ticking, monkeys have taken over the supermarket and everyone's calling 999…
As the city teeters on the edge of collapse, players take charge of the emergency services and attempt to bring order to the mad metropolis. As instructions from HQ crackle in through the Wii Remote speaker, players take to the wheel of a fire truck, ambulance or police patrol car and race, against the clock, through the bustling city streets, dodging traffic and driving down shortcuts to reach the incident scene.
On reaching an emergency, play switches to one of over 30 mini-game challenges and the Wii Remote is used in a huge range of wild ways to save the day; ranging from putting out fires, restraining prisoners, practicing CPR, to hurling bananas at out of control monkeys or herding escaped penguins to safety!
No area of Crisis City is spared the mayhem. From the fairground at the beach to the sky-scrapers of downtown, players will be delivering city dwellers to safety in four precincts across eight diverse environments.
In addition to a massive single-player game, Emergency Mayhem also packs a fantastic multiplayer mode with mini-game challenges for up to four players. Prepare to save the citizens of the city from all manner of crazy catastrophes when Emergency Mayhem arrives later this month April, exclusively on Wii™.
