Today, 505 Games and Rebellion Games announced that their smash hit, “Sniper Elite V2”, will be making its way to the Wii U. The game won’t be a direct port, but will rather be optimized for the Wii U. This means new controls to compliment the Wii U controller as well as new levels of interactivity only possible with the Wii U GamePad Touchscreen.
“Sniper Elite V2” originally released May 1, 2012 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with a PC version coming at a later date. It was a strong candidate for one of the best games of the year, and easily one of the best shooters. With its unique focus on stealth, problem solving, and realistic physics; it provides a completely unique take on the shooter genre. Since its launch, the game has received a lot of support through updates and DLC, which will likely be transferred to the Wii U version as well.
There isn’t currently a set release date for the launch on Wii U, but it’s expected sometime in Spring 2013. To get more information on the game, check out the Official Website, their Official Facebook Page, or Official Twitter Account.
