Wii gets Manhunt 2: sequel to the goriest game ever

New York, NY – February 6, 2007 – Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce Manhunt 2 for the PlayStation 2 system, PSP system, and Nintendo's Wii™. Manhunt 2 is the debut title from the newly formed Rockstar London studio, which is developing the game in conjunction with series creator Rockstar North. The Wii™ version is being developed by Rockstar Toronto. Manhunt 2 will be available this summer.

"With Manhunt 2 we have tried to create a game that stays close to the original concept of chilling suspense and stealth, whilst pushing the game design and storytelling forward," said Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games. "We are also excited to have our newest development team, Rockstar London, working on the title alongside our two established UK studios, Rockstar North and Leeds."


Well I think we all had an idea this was going to happen. Reggie has been in talks with Rockstar Games for a while now and it seems to have paid off big time. You can throw out the words "kiddie" and "Wii" in the same sentence, this one is going to be a blood bath.

Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, The Godfather: Blackhand Edition, Prince of Persia: Rival Swords, Driver: Parallel Lines, Scarface: The World is Yours, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and now Manhunt 2.

The Wii is scoring alot of M-rated games!

I predict 50 Cent: Bulletproof will be announced later on, but I hope not. :P

Prince of Persia: Rival Swords is listed as "teen" rated, even though the original gamed was rated "mature". I for one will not buy another Ubisoft port that is also watered down with all the blood taken out. Shame on them.

All the other games listed are going to bring the "M" rating big time-especially Manhunt 2. Wild.
