Here's an Early Look at Location Game Footage in HullBreach: Uncloaked

Both real and fantastical

HullBreach Uncloaked is an intriguing Wii U eShop title in a couple of respects — it's based on a Wii-browser MMORPG called HullBreach Online, and its developer (HullBreach Studios) has bold plans for the scope that it'll offer.
