Real Heroes: Firefighter Sequel In Development For Wii U

The CEO of Scientifically Proven Entertainment has exclusively revealed to us that his company is working on a semi-sequel to the popular Real Heroes: Firefighter series.

Previously available on Wii and 3DS, the franchise puts you in the position of a fireman attempting to douse the flames and rescue people from crumbling structures.

Speaking in an interview with Nintendo Life regarding the company's new Blood of the Werewolf title for the Wii U eShop, Scientifically Proven founder Nathaniel "Than" McClure had this to say about the forthcoming project:

It will be an Unreal Engine-driven, episodic action-packed shooter. As a player you will fear for your life in the same familiar fashion as the big cinematic shooters but driven by some new unique mechanics — the destructive fire enemy and the ever changing, choice-driving, destructible environments. The first person mechanics are the same as what you are used to, but the harrowing life and death experience in the face of a 1500 degree wall of fire or a collapsing city tower is something totally unique and new. The Wii U and its dual-screen ability on the GamePad make it a perfect fit. We think you will love it.

Sounds like the studio has some big ideas for the Wii U GamePad — we'll be keeping a close eye on this. Will you?

I'm really interested! I like new concepts in gaming. The bad engine in the 3DS version turned me down, lets see how this one here turns out. :)

I definitely want this! I loved the Wii game! they better let us use the Wii remote though, I don't want to spray with the control stick like Epic Mickey 2 forced us to do...

@SteveW: The Wiimote is dead on the Wii U. If you havent noticed by now companies are looking at the gamepad alot more and not even including Wiimote and Nunchuck control options in their games.

What in the world is this. Are you serious Nintendo ? Nintendo you are just so desperate right now it is getting really pathetic. Get real games on your console not this nonsense.

Whoah some people here seem to be angry about this...
The first one didn't actually do too badly critically, don't hate on it for being based on things in the real world XD
Whooo third party console exclusive!

Uh, actually, the Wii version was rather fun. It had issues, yes, but it was a unique experience. The 3DS version was garbage, mind you. Currently they're trying to get a re-release of the Wii game onto Steam via Greenlight, with funds from that game possibly going to fund this sequel (which they REALLY have wanted to do for quite a while, heck, they've mentioned it as a possibility during the greenlight campaign).

It should be a real-time strategy as opposed to a third-person whatever it was before or first-person squirter. Fire fighting is all about teamwork, not how one fire fighter saves the day.
