We don't report all that much on video games around here, but when one sounds as cool as this, it can't be ignored. Via a press release we learn that JAWS is heading to Nintendo - and you can be the killer shark!
Majesco Entertainment Company, an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, and Microprose, an executive producer for video games, announced today that JAWS: Ultimate Predator for the Nintendo 3DS system and Wii is in development for an expected release this fall.
Set 35 years after the events of the iconic movie, JAWS: Ultimate Predator is an action-packed and intense game that pays homage to the classic film while putting you in control of one of the most terrifying forces in nature, the unstoppable killing machine that is the great white shark.
JAWS: Ultimate Predator on the Nintendo 3DS system puts you in control of the hulking terror of the seas like never before, letting you experience the action through the eyes of the beast in startling 3D. Developed by n-Space and produced by Microprose, the Nintendo 3DS version of JAWS: Ultimate Predator lets you defeat an army of shark hunters and rule the ocean by unleashing deadly attack combinations such as Feeding Frenzy and Corkscrew Shred while using the Touch Screen to bite, ram and dodge enemies.
JAWS: Ultimate Predator for Wii transforms you into the fierce creature, protecting its underwater domain from human interlopers while hunting and killing prey with 20 different advanced attack combos. Fill up the Rage Meter and confront deadly bosses including the Tiger Shark, Killer Whale and Sea Serpent that match JAWS in strength and size. Explore real life environments and lush underwater settings from Hawaii to the Great Barrier Reef, plus the infamous locale where it all started, Amity Island. In addition, discover hidden collectibles and upgrade special abilities to unleash critical damage with maximum power and speed!
Sounds pretty awesome to me; what say you?
