Chaos Coming to Crisis City as
Emergency Mayhem for Wii Goes Gold
New video reveals most
accident-prone city of all time in meltdown!
Putting the urgency into emergency,
Codemasters® today announced that Emergency Mayhem™ has gone gold and is set to
ship to U.S. retail stores on April 15th with the European/PAL launch on April
18th. Coming exclusively to Wii™, catch the chaos in the
new gameplay video
In Emergency Mayhem, Crisis City is
living up to its name and its citizens are panicking. Fires rage, bombs are
ticking, monkeys have taken over the supermarket and everyone’s calling 911…
As the city teeters on the edge of
collapse, players take charge of the emergency services and attempt to bring
order to the mad metropolis. As instructions from HQ crackle in through the Wii
Remote speaker, players take to the wheel of a fire truck, ambulance or police
patrol car and race, against the clock, through the bustling city streets,
dodging traffic and driving down shortcuts to reach the incident scene.
On reaching an emergency, play
switches to one of over 30 mini-game challenges and the Wii Remote is used in a
huge range of wild ways to save the day; ranging from putting out fires,
restraining prisoners, practicing CPR, to hurling bananas at out of control
monkeys or herding escaped penguins to safety!
No area of Crisis City is spared the
mayhem. From the fairground at the beach to the sky-scrapers of downtown,
players will be delivering city dwellers to safety in four precincts across
eight diverse environments.
In addition to a massive
single-player game, Emergency Mayhem also packs a fantastic multiplayer mode
with mini-game challenges for up to four players. Prepare to save the citizens
of the city from all manner of crazy catastrophes when Emergency Mayhem arrives
later this month April, exclusively on Wii™.
