Demiurge is developing the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines with our longtime partners at Gearbox Software and publishing partner Sega. As huge Aliens fans, we’re honored to contribute to this missing chapter of the renowned series. And as huge Nintendo fans, we're thrilled we get to push the envelope of Wii U development. We’re bringing some unique features to the Wii U that aren’t possible on other platforms. Using the Wii U GamePad’s motion controls, you can use the screen as a fully directional motion tracker - just like in Aliens. You can also use the touch screen to hack terminals and scan for enemies.

Nice! But I hope, the graphics will be way better than XBOX 360 and PS3 versions. You can do it!

How is your schedule looking, when do you expect to be gold? Is it worth waiting for the WiiU Version? I´d love the motion tracker on the WiiUPad, but might get the 360 version before waiting 2-3 more month….

why the Wii U version needs so long to release ?? i want to play the game now and not in 2 or 3 month !! and now move your ass and finish this Game !!!

...add support to normal wii controlls as well. with the same customation and options like in cod (mw3 wii f.i.), and maybe add motion + support to it like its done in red steel 2/ metroid blast. (so u turn faster the farer you point to a side even if u are outside of range of the sensorbar) ! i guess i am not the only one who dont like to play first person shooters with dual analog any more, especially in case of YOUR target platform…

and another thing: please add ALSO the ability to play with the touchscreen like it would be a mouse for freelook. this thing worked very well on the ds (metroid hunters for instance) due it was a little crampy with this little system, what would not be the case on the far mor ergonomic wiiu pad.

i think offering these two options of controll layouts doesnt add to much work to realize, but would be my reason to get the game blind!!! ...no matter what reviews say =)

if its too late to add those features…....do it in a later patch please, although it would push the score on reviews

Hi dudes.
I’m stoked for this game and will wait for this version, I’m always curious as to Demiurges spin.
Got a coupla asks,
Maybe somone from your outfit can run over to the GBX - A:CM discussion boards? Theres a Wii U thread going on there. Maybe somone can drop any info you’re able? Most people wanna know about release date but I think anything you can say would be cool. Just don’t get stuck there haha!

Secondy, seeing as you guys did such a top tier job with ‘Titan Quest’. Any chance you’ll pitch ‘Blizzard North’ for ‘Diablo 3’ on the Wii U?
You guys’d be my first choice. Anyway good luck et al smile

I agree… I am not even getting answers on when this WiiU version is coming out…

All of the other systems get it in a week.

This was one of the games I was really looking forward to playing on the awesome new Nintendo system… Too bad

I will eventually break down and buy the PC version.. cuz no body tell me bout the, wii(U)!


Can’t wait to see what you come up with either way, just really wanted to give YOU my money and not Gamestop for a used copy 6 months down the road…

Release date please…....????????? Cant find this info anywhere .cant wait to play this title.i have read the wii u version is going to be the best version is that because of the conrol system on wii u or will it be graphically superior

Feb 05, 2013

Hi Guy, you wont get any info out of them as it’s strict orders from sega/pr and maybe gearbox software to keep hush!. on a personal note… It’s a shame really because i would of gone for the wii u version of the game, for atmosphere…wii gamepad involvement. playing for the first time as well. now most of you guys have said.. you’ll buy on other platforms.. but when the wii u version comes out.. how would you feel about playing it again for the second time? it wouldn’t be great as you’ve already played and already know what happens next when you progress through the game.. the wow factor is gone! Upto you if you done want to wait..or jus get this when it comes out..

Feb 05, 2013

So, will your version of the game NOT suck?  Because man oh man, the one that came out today was horrible…
I have my fingers crossed that the Wii U version is vastly different.

Feb 13, 2013

rumors going around that the Wii U version has been canceled.

Feb 14, 2013

i will be waiting for reviews on the wii version, as i can not see it being any better than the other versions. prove me wrong.

I played this on PC a lot when i was working towing Kelowna . This game solved a lot of my problems, was scary, too.

I just love all the creations of aliens. It is weird to see canon printer repair and it gives an entirely different look. The design of the alien makes an entirely different look to the movie. And each movie has a differently designed alien.
