Ultraman Fights his Way onto the Wii
Posted by David Snoddy
"Here he comes from the sky!" -- Namco Bandai are planning to release a new Ultraman fighting game on the Wii in 2010.
Ultraman is the silver-suited hero who stars in the television program: Ultra Q: Ultraman: Special Effects Fantasy Series, which was a spin-off of the television series Ultra Q. Due to its initial popularity in Japan the show has spawned numerous imitators, sequels and remakes -- and of course, a game or two.
Daikaiju Battle Ultra Coliseum DX: Ultra Senshi Daishuketsu for the Nintendo Wii is due in Japanese shops on February 25th, 2010. As far as we can tell this game follows the same style as its predecessors: a beat-em up. Fans of the show will no doubt be interested to know various Ultramen taken from various series and the movie: "Great Kaiju Battle Ultra Galaxy Legend" will feature as playable characters.
Whether this will see release overseas is anyone's guess (the first one released in 2008 never made it over), but you can be sure we'll let you know if we hear anything further about this potentially explosive daikaiju battlefest!
