Cabela’s Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts is heading to Wii U, according to a new listing on GameFly. The title is also slated for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

This will likely be your standard Cabela game fare. We’ve seen plenty of these titles on other platforms – including Wii.

In any case, if GameFly’s listing is accurate, we’ll be seeing Cabela’s Big Game Hunter: Pro Hunts in store shelves no March 25.

Activision has officially announced Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, set to release on various formats in June.

Here’s the game’s official overview:

Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming TRANSFORMERS live-action film and Activision’s TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON and TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON titles, TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble AUTOBOTS and the nefarious DECEPTICONS throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios’CYBERTRON entries in the highly regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts.

Rise of the Dark Spark will feature the return of Escalation – a wave-based, survival-style gameplay mode that supports up to four players online cooperatively. Players will also find new, upgradeable defense systems, recognizable adversaries, and even more playable characters from past and present.

Developer Edge of Reality has also included a new leveling system so that progress is unified in single-player and multiplayer. “Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks potent awards and tactical loadout choices – including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities and consumable bonuses – for use throughout the entire game,” Activision says.
