Conduit team exposes hardcore Wii trio

Despite not having personally tested how lucrative the Wii’s hardcore market is, developer High Voltage has announced a third mature title in development on Nintendo’s divisive home console.

Illinois-based High Voltage, which has previously developed three Wii titles based on two animated children’s TV shows, is now offering a trio of Wii games targeted towards completely different audiences.

Along with promising futuristic FPS The Conduit and gory amphitheatre fighter Gladiator AD, the studio has announced its newest title, The Grinder, a co-op based FPS in a similar vein to Valve’s Left 4 Dead.

Speaking to games site IGN, chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger cited the Valve shooter as an influence, adding that “there’s certainly nothing that takes advantage of the Wii hardware the way we are able to with our engine."

The Grinder (pictured) is scheduled for release in 2010. High voltage has also unveiled the first video trailer for Gladiator AD, also set for release in 2010:
