PAL Wii owners will take command of the legendary invaders as they attack the Earth in an exclusive new WiiWare title.
Square Enix has announced that it will be bringing another instalment of Taito's legendary Space Invaders series to PAL territories in the form of Space Invaders Get Even, an exclusive new WiiWare title available to download from the Wii Shop Channel in October.
Following on from the release of Space Invaders Extreme for Nintendo DS, Space Invaders Get Even further commemorates the 30th anniversary of the arcade classic by putting gamers on the other side of the storied conflict. Players take command of the Space Invader hordes in Get Even, controlling UFOs and marshalling the iconic extra-terrestrial creatures to combat tanks, fighter planes, and bosses drawn from Earth's defence forces.
Commanding the invasion will involve choosing between five different attack modes for your forces, and battles will rage across seven different environments. Also, players' high scores will be measured against the best the world has to offer via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
There are currently no details on a price point for the PAL release of Space Invaders Get Even, nor has there been any suggestion of additional downloadable content being made available. In Japan, Space Invaders Get Even has been set for an August release at a price of 500 Wii Points, with further content to be released later on.
