The downloadable game will even feature online four-player co-op.
Who knew that the company behind the classic-but-cute Bomberman had a first-person shooter in the works? Hudson recently revealed Onslaught, a futuristic first-person shooter that promises not just "a horde of enemies to blast away," but also cooperative play for up to four people. Another surprise? It's for WiiWare.
Onslaught's setup is classic science fiction as Hudson explains it: "contact with a distant research colony is lost and your team is sent in to find out what happened." Since the game is on the Wii, it will feature unique controls. Players don't just take aim with the pointer, they also reload by shaking the Wii Remote, and throw grenades by shaking the Nunchuk.
And since the game is squad-based, Hudson claims that players will be able to "team up with a friend, or two, maybe even three!" This co-op aspect isn't enough though; Hudson is taking the downloadable title online so gamers can "play in four-person co-op." There is currently no confirmation of any kind of local multiplayer.
The first couple screenshots revealed the helmeted space marines and the insectoid space aliens. The screens also show several of the game's weapons, including an assault rifle with a visible ammo indicator on the gun, a rocket launcher, and what may be a whip. One screen even shows the character inside some sort of vehicle with two large Gatling guns on either side.
Hudson has not revealed any release date for the title, but their website shows that the game has already earned a Teen rating from the ESRB.
