Reef Entertainment will release Sniper Elite on Wii in the summer.
The game is based on the original 2005 release, which debuted on PS2 and has since launched on other formats.
Reef’s CEO Peter Rezon said: Sniper Elite represents our most ambitious project yet. We have taken a game that has been called ‘the Gran Turismo of war games’ and improved it. We believe this will be one of the most fun shooters launched in 2010.”
Sniper Elite will take full advantage of the Wii’s Remote to make the action more immersive. The game puts players in the role of a sniper tasked with a series of missions in 1945 Berlin.
The title is also compatible with the Wii Zapper and has been developed with add-ons such as this in mind, targeting Wii owners with gun-based peripherals. It also contains new levels and content that was not available in the original Sniper Elite.
Added Rezon: Following on from our recent launches of Free Running and Rogue Trooper: Quartz Zone Massacre, we are incorporating features that ensure Sniper Elite will be an essential purchase.”
TV presenter Charlie Brooker told MCV last year that the 2005 original was one of his favourite titles.
