Activision's Wipeout: The Game Now Available for Nintendo DS and Wii
Activision Publishing, Inc. today announced the arrival of Wipeout: The Game for Nintendo DS and Wii. Based upon the Endemol USA produced hit ABC TV show, Wipeout, Wipeout: The Game pits friends and family against each other in the world’s largest, messiest, and most hilarious obstacle course out there today.
“When developing the game our goal was to capture all the elements that people love about the hilarious reality ABC show, and to above all make it fun,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “So far, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from fans, who clearly can’t wait to step up to the challenge of the obstacle course.”
Wipeout: The Game is loaded with the elements that have made the TV show a smash hit. From the contestant demolishing Dreadmill to the fan-favorite Big Balls, all of Wipeout’s classic obstacles make an appearance in the game. Furthering the complete Wipeout experience that fans have become accustomed to is the inclusion of witty commentary provided by the show’s hosts John Anderson, John Henson and co-host Jill Wagner.
In Wipeout: The Game, up to four players can battle against each other in the game’s many challenges. As they compete for the ultimate win, players will get down and dirty with their opponents as they hurl objects and insults with the game’s signature Trash Talk Generator.
Wipeout: The Game for Nintendo DS and Wii is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and is available now for a suggested price of $29.99.
