Martian Overload Provokes Interplanetary Chaos As Empire Interactive Announces Martian Panic For Wii
Sci-Fi Arcade Shooter Brings Dual Wielding Madness to Earthling Living Rooms
Attention Citizens of Earth: commence panicking and prepare for the ultimate inter-galactic battle. Empire Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings, today announced Martian Panic for the Wii™ system is currently under development. The Martian Invasion Force has targeted Earth for complete destruction and players will need more than manpower and firepower to avoid mission defeat. The Martian Mothership looms overhead, draining energy from the Earth’s core. Humans must save Earth from the extraterrestrial encounter before the Invasion Force vaporizes our planet. Martian Panic is slated for release during the first half of 2009.
Developed by N-Fusion Interactive Entertainment Corp., Martian Panic will take the Wii shooting genre out of this world, with new levels of strategy and experimental weaponry. If one gun at a time isn’t enough, players can grab a second Wii Remote™ and blast away in the game’s dual-wielding mode. Up to four players can battle simultaneously against the Martian onslaught and the advanced camera system ensures that the gamer’s vantage is always right. The rules are simple but the action is intense, so hold onto your helmet as the challenges escalate.
“Graphically, Martian Panic is a 1950s comic book come to life in a three-dimensional sci-fi game world,” said P.J. Snavely, director of product management, Empire Interactive. “Fans of all ages will appreciate the amazing visual details and the family friendly, nonstop action.”
