Wii™ owners will direct the course of evolution this fall when Hudson Entertainment launches Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem. Exclusively downloadable for WiiWare™, the interspecies shooter is set to be published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT. Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem is rated E10+ by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
“Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem combines classic shooter gameplay with a surreal take on evolution,” says Peter Dassenko, Producer at Hudson Entertainment. “It’s all about the survival of the fittest in this downloadable title.”
In Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem, players start as primates and battle lizardmen across the epochs, from primeval to medieval times and beyond. Players who survive each battle will evolve from a lowly monkey to an apeman, then caveman, a human knight, and finally a soldier. The combat continues to change as the lizardmen also evolve throughout the game. Co-op mode allows players to survive the onslaught together.
We'll have more information on Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the game hits the WiiWare service.
