Amidst the swell of hype over Nintendo's next console and the release of Valve's latest masterpiece, Sega and High Voltage Software release Conduit 2 for the Wii.
Conduit 2 (it dropped the "The"), the sequel to the pioneering Wii shooter, has had its release date pushed back twice. Once developer High Voltage finishes it, though, they'll begin working on an installment for the Nintendo 3DS.
High Voltage Software's Conduit 2 gets a chance to shine today with an all-new trailer and screen shots for Wii owners to feast upon. Get ready to set the mood, Conduit style.
Gamers that pick up Sega's Conduit 2 at GameStop will score an exclusive limited edition of the game at no additional cost. What extras do you get for free?
The sharp-eyed gamer, the jaded gamer and the snob gamer will not mistake the screenshot of Conduit 2 atop this story as an image of an Xbox 360 game. "That's a Wii game?" they will sneer. "Figures."
High Voltage Software and Sega jumped Wii first-person shooter Conduit 2 out of the way of GoldenEye: 007 last month. Now the game has landed firmly in February of 2011. Will the new trailer entice players to pick it up?
What game is this? It's a shooter. It's a Wii game. It's a sequel. And the previous game's box art doesn't look anything like this.
Well, isn't this timely. Conduit 2 begins with uncontrollable calamity out at sea on an oil rig. A coincidence, says High Voltage Software, but isn't that what their shadow government would want you to think?
In a message to Sega fans posted at the company's European blog, High Voltage chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger explains why The Conduit was a muddled, uninteresting jumble, and why the game's sequel won't be.
Sega is making Conduit 2 doubly official today, offering a first look at the sequel to last year's The Conduit for the Wii, complete with new details and a chance to put your face in the game.
High Voltage Software will give fans of its original shooter The Conduit another opportunity to enjoy first-person shooting thrills on the Wii. The latest issue of Nintendo Power unveils the sequel, Conduit 2.
