Extreme time travelling

The upcoming Timelord adventures Doctor Who: Return to Earth for Wii and Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth for DS are expected to make their way to Europe in four weeks, so it's a little odd we know nothing of either title barring some screenshots. Worry not, as the Official Nintendo Magazine has unearthed a few nuggets of information.

Associate producer from games publisher Asylum Interactive, Glen Parry explained the crux of the two titles:

The Wii game is a third-person action adventure which includes stealth, distraction devices and the ability to fire sonic blasts at appropriate targets, so definitely more action based. It is set in a dangerous starship that the Doctor and Amy have to traverse through solving puzzles within the environment.

The DS game is a puzzle adventure game in which the Doctor and Amy are investigating the last spaceship to leave Earth during a solar flare storm.

That settles that, then: action adventure on Wii, puzzle adventure on DS. Both games will feature stories written by Oli Smith, an author used to dealing with the Doctor due to having written several officially commissioned short stories about the Timelord.
