Open fire!

Turn-based tactical strategy game Space Hulk will be hitting the North American Wii U eShop on May 2nd.

Based on the Games Workshop board game, Space Hulk sees you taking control of a team of Space Marine Terminators tasked with boarding derelict spaceships and ridding them of the alien Genestealer menace contained within.

The game's single player campaign is based on the "Sin of Damnation" Space Hulk campaign, and includes 3 new prequel missions and the 12 missions from the original board game. Speaking of which, the multiplayer mode aims to recreate the head-to-head feel of the board game with hot-seat play on a single console.
