Aliens: Colonial Marines For DS: Not 'Game Over' After All

Posted by Damien McFerran

Work is continuing, according to Gearbox's Randy Pitchford

A short while ago, we reported that a trailer for what appeared to be an DS-based Aliens game had been leaked onto the net, and that developer WayForward was involved.

The video was posted on YouTube with text suggesting that the game itself had been canned due to financial difficulties. The footage looked awesome, but was sadly pulled at Sega's request shortly after.

However, Kotaku is reporting that Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford has confirmed that work on the DS version is continuing. Gearbox has no involvement with the DS version but is working on the other home console editions - so if anyone knows, it should be Pitchford.

So it looks like WayForward will be releasing its 'spiritual successor to Contra 4' after all - happy days!

The picture made me lol.
Was never very big into Contra and the likes, so this one's skippable by me.

Wow, that is awesome news indeed! I missed the video the first time around because it got pulled before I could see it. As long as the game is coming out and WayForward is still doing it I'm a happy camper!

I guess this one's not "unannounced" anymore. Guess that explains why Voldi didn't seem to want to talk about it in that interview.

I'll play it even though I wasn't THAT impressed by the trailer. I love Aliens, so that alone will draw me to it.
