The latest Nintendo Power has new information on the next Conduit title.
The latest issue of Nintendo Power confirms that a sequel to High Voltage Software's The Conduit is in development. According to the preview, The Conduit 2 will once again be published by Sega.
The sequel will focus a lot more on the game's art and story, two aspects criticized by many in the first title. Another much-maligned aspect of the original was its lack of local multiplayer; in response, The Conduit 2 will feature split-screen multiplayer for up to four players. Other multiplayer modes confirmed include a co-op Invasion mode for up to four players, online and off.
The online modes and features seen in the first Conduit game will return in the sequel, like WiiSpeak support, Bounty Hunter mode and several other modes. There will also see different classes with unique skills. Suits can also be upgraded, such like robotic legs that will let players sprint farther.
The Conduit 2 will take place in Atlantis. Other locations that the sequel will feature include Siberia, Washington and Agartha. It is also said to feature new weapons like the Vortex Canon and the Phase Rifle. Up to seven new weapons will be featured in the sequel. Some old weapons will also be returning, and some of them will even receive a facelift.
No release dates were given at the moment.
