EA: Dead Space heading to Wii

It seems Electronic Arts have confirmed that Dead Space will be heading to Wii this year.

Edge Online have today reported that EA have confirmed that Dead Space will be heading to Wii, the following was posted on their site:

EA CEO John Riccitiello said that his company will be bringing games based on mass market Hasbro and Sims properties to the Wii, but also core properties that "have legs," such as a certain horror title that released in 2008.

"A good example of this is Dead Space," he said. "We're bringing a Wii title to market this year, and it absolutely has the quality and fear factor that you got on the PS3 and Xbox 360 and PC last year."

He also said marketing efforts revolving exclusively around Wii games would increase.

Whilst there isn't an official press release announcing the game this conference call good info is good enough for us, Dead Space was a huge hit on Xbox last year - how well will it convert to Wii? We're not sure.

Set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke – an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It is not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship’s crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive.

We're not sure of a release date or any other details just yet, but it seems Dead Space will be on Wii later this year.
