Speed Zone For Wii Puts Pedal to
Metal – Available Now!
Detn8 Games Ltd. announces the
August 18th release of Speed Zone™, its breakthrough, futuristic racing gamefor
the Wii™ home video game system. The game is available now at WalMart, Best Buy,
and all your favorite retailers, as well as online game e-tailers. Developed
exclusively for Wii, Speed Zone races ahead of a cluttered field of me-too
products – with an original, smartly designed racer with exhilarating game play.
Speed Zone breaks the limit for
fast, smooth racing action, running at a sustained 60 frames per second. The
game breaks new ground with an 8-player, split-screen option and support for the
Logitech® Speed Force Wireless™ force feedback racing wheel. Speed Zone is the
only game that supports up to four Speed Force Wireless wheels at one time.
Set on colorful planets, asteroids,
and space stations, Speed Zone features three game modes – Solo, Race, and
Battle – each with multiple goals and a progressive, level-unlock structure. A
3D, three-sided pyramid menu provides access to the game’s 30 levels.
Multiplayer options in Race and
Battle modes allow for up to eight players using up to four of each type of
supported controller, in any combination of Wii Remotes™ Nunchuks™, Classic
Controllers, Nintendo GameCube™ controllers, Wii Wheels™, or Logitech Speed
In Solo mode, players try to ignite
jet thrusters with boost pads to accelerate "into the zone,” with phantom cars
and racing lines to help set lap records. Players can find secret pickups and
shortcuts and earn bonus rewards by setting new best times. Bonus rewards can be
used to buy new cars, skins, aerodynamic aides, and performance upgrades, which
give the player the opportunity to go even faster when revisiting levels.
In Race mode, players compete
against seven computer-controlled AI cars. Battle Mode is an all-out, futuristic
demolition derby, using some spectacular weapons. Players can fry opponents with
a Tesla ray or obliterate them with a plethora of other weapons, including
rockets, missiles, photon guns, chain guns, and mines. Defensive pick-ups
include shock-jumps, shields, and a stealth cloak.
