Even after their battles with Predators and colonial marines, the Aliens just aren’t ready to go down yet. Sega announced today that a new game titled Aliens: Infestation will be heading to the Nintendo DS in a few months.
Aliens: Infestation is developed by WayForward in collaboration with Gearbox Software and will be an action-heavy side-scrolling adventure game. The game will feature character designs from comic artist Chris Bachalo (The Witching Hour, X-Men Unlimited, Ghost Rider 2099) and promises to take players to some of the iconic environments from the expanded Aliens universe. Venture out to familiar territory such as Sulaco, LV-426 and the derelict ship.
Gamers will be able to recruit and play as nineteen different characters, each with their own unique dialog. They possess and use a variety or weapons and tools that fans of the franchise will be familiar with.
You can expect to see Aliens: Infestation in-stores for the Nintendo DS this September.
As a fan of the movies, I have to admit I’m looking forward to this game. While it may not be Aliens: Colonial Marines, a side-scrolling adventure does make some sense as far as an Aliens game goes. Anyone remember the Aliens vs. Predator Arcade Game?
