Cabela's Legendary Adventures serves up more Wii Remote big game hunting.

The Cabela hunting franchise will headline a second title for Wii this fall. "The missions are based on encounters with some of the most famous animals ever hunted in the wild," said Activision's Dave Oxford. Like all Cabela hunting titles, the gameplay and gun schematics will aim to match those of real life.

Cabela's Legendary Adventures features gameplay across different eras of time and ten environments in search of hunting prizes including white-tailed deer, Yukon moose, Alaskan brown bear, and Roosevelt elk. Immersive environments like the Yukon and Rocky Mountains encourage exploration and tactical variation. Oxford continued: "Focusing on these amazing once-in-a-lifetime stories has really allowed us to capture the essence of what hunting is all about – a quest for a legendary experience."
