EA have announced details on the previously confirmed Dead Space for Wii. It won't be a port of Isaac Clarke's adventure instead Dead Space Extraction will be a prequel featuring a main heroine as she tries to escape a "horrific infection" at the Aegis VII mining colony.
"We could not be more excited to extend Dead Space into an experience exclusive to the Wii. Nintendo has a wonderful history in the horror genre and we are thrilled to build on that tradition with Dead Space Extraction," said Glen Schofield, VP and General Manager of EA Redwood Shores studio. "As we were developing Dead Space, we realized that there was so much of the story going untold. Dead Space Extraction tells that story with all of the intensity, blood and gore that fans would expect."
Dead Space Extraction will be released this fall exclusively on Nintendo Wii.
