Ubisoft making FPS for Wii U

Ubisoft is well known to be first on the scene whenever a new system is launched, usually to shower it with questionable products. This time, however, there might be some hope that they are actually putting some effort in right off the bat.

They will put out an entirely new shooter IP on the system. Killer Freaks from Outer Space, it’s called. It will take advantage of the extra screen in the Wii U controller, but how exactly it will play is not revealed.

The game sees the planet invaded by vicious aliens, and as one of the last survivors, it is your task to stop them.

There’s no in-game footage in the first trailer below, but gives an idea of the tone they’re aiming for, which seems to be along the lines of “Evil Dead meets Rayman’s Raving Rabbids“. Something about that seems to suggest that it could turn out not entirely horrible.

First shots in the gallery too.
