Space Hulk Coming to Wii U “Before Christmas”

thumb 4 Space Hulk Coming to Wii U Before Christmas

HR Games has revealed that the Wii U version of Space Hulk, which was supposed to be out in May, will be arriving “before Christmas.” It’s not exactly a concrete date, but it’s just what we are going to have to roll with for now. Here are some Space Hulk details:

Space Hulk is set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of an ancient vessel lost in the graveyard of space. Players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Recreating the tense battles of the board game, multiplayer hotseat mode will allow players to go head-to-head as one player controls the Space Marines and their opponent the Genestealers, in the ultimate fight for domination.

“We are excited about bringing the SPACE HULK® experience of the Warhammer 40,000 universe to Consoles. As FULL CONTROL did on the PC, we can now finally bring that experience to life on console full of scary Genestealers and mighty Terminators!” said Manny Granillo, CEO of HR GAMES. “As huge fans of the Space Hulk board game and the Warhammer 40,000 universe in general, we are delighted that Games Workshop has given us the opportunity to work with this iconic license and bring this version of Space Hulk into the hands of all fans out there”.

girls Extreme Exorcism Coming to Wii U on September 23

London – September 2 2015 – The power of gaming compels you to gather controllers and battle poltergeists as paranormal platformer and action party game Extreme Exorcism takes possession of PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4, Wii U, Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program, and PC via Steam on September 23. Developed by indie team Golden Ruby Games and published by Ripstone Publishing, Extreme Exorcism will release for $12.99.

In Extreme Exorcism, players take on the role of Extreme Exorcist Mae Barrons – whose unconventional supernatural skills are called upon when everything and everyone else has failed to rid a haunted house of its ghostly presence. However, these aren’t your average poltergeists, as each time a spirit is eliminated, another will mimic Mae’s prior movements, weapon fires and dodges. With Extreme Exorcism, players are their own worst enemy and the longer they survive, the more chaotic the game becomes.

To aid in her efforts, Mae’s equipped with a lethal arsenal of more than 20 ghost-busting weapons, including swords, guns, grenades, mines, rocket launchers, razor-sharp boomerangs, lightning spells and Kung-Fu moves. She’ll need all the firepower she can obtain, as she’ll face 50 challenges, a single player story mode and local multiplayer with up-to four players, including both Co-op and Deathmatch modes.
