Due for release in 2008Previously confirmed for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Atari's Alone in the Dark will now be making a welcome appearance on Wii and Playstation 2.
The storyline will be identical to the other versions and will follow the hero, Edward Carnby as he attempts to uncover an earth-shattering secret hidden in New York’s iconic Central Park. The Wii version will be adapted specifically to take advantage of the Wii-mote and the Nunchuck, allowing us to manipulate objects in real-time and Atari say that they'll be pushing the graphical capabilities of the console to bring us an intensely atmospheric horror survival game.
“Realising the enormous ambition of Alone in the Dark is a huge technological challenge, which becomes even more demanding on Wii and PlayStation 2,” said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. “However, we’re certain players will be impressed with what Hydravision have achieved on the two consoles, not least with the Wii game which is perfectly adapted to the gameplay thanks to the console’s unique controllers.”
The next episode in the Alone in the Dark franchise is due for release in 2008.
