Wii Getting Attacked By Movies In 3D

You know, the kind with glasses
Ever seen a movie in 3D and wished you could shoot the crap out of everything on screen?
Developed for Wii by Panic Button Games and published by Majesco, Attack of the Movies 3D wants to put you right in the thick of the action of your favorite types of movies. Want to shoot aliens? Boom! Fight the machine army? Ka-pow! Battle underwater critters? Torped-ouch!
It even comes with four sets of 3D glasses so you and three other people can play and wave your hands in front of you, futilely trying to grab what we all know isn't there.
Without screens it's tough to judge exactly what type of shooter this is, but our Batman-rivaling powers of deduction peg it as on-rails. Expect to see the game on European shelves sometime this summer. Want to see the press release? Bam! Down there.
