505 Games has shared the first details on Sniper Elite V2 for Wii U.
The shooter will feature new controls as well as “a level of interactivity only possible with the Wii U GamePad touch screen”.
505 also provided the following information:
“Players will enjoy the same thrilling, visceral experience as they guide American OSS agent Karl Fairburne around historical locations throughout Berlin and attempt to unravel the mysteries and dangers of the German V-2 rocket program but now with even greater tactical depth and flexibility thanks to brand new functionality through the GamePad – tag enemies and booby-traps, track enemy locations and activity, even monitor the blast radius of planted explosives – all with a glance at the touch screen and without leaving the battlefield for even a second.”
Sniper Elite V2 will also have the standard gameplay from the original release. It’ll feature the “kill cam” from the first Sniper Elite, and “skillful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion sequence of the bullet running its full trajectory before the target is rendered in graphic x-ray detail, showing the bullet entering the body and causing lethal damage.”
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, commented:
“Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U. It’s been a challenge to get it right, but thanks to our team and the fantastic support of our partners at 505 Games we believe we’ve brought the unique gameplay to a whole new platform.”
Sniper Elite V2 is hitting Wii U this spring.
