SEGA have this morning announced a new game based on the Aliens movies, this time for the DS. The game, titled Aliens: Infestation, is described as "an action-heavy side-scrolling exploration game".
Visually, it's reminiscent of both the utterly magnificent Aliens: Arcade and Blizzard's criminally underappreciated Blackthorne, while it's description makes it sound like it has "Metroidvania" (i.e. Metroid and Castlevania) properties.
Check it out:
Developed by Way Forward, the team behind the excellent Contra 4, and being reminiscent of so many outstanding games, while simultaneously being based on one of the most beloved movie franchises of all time, this has incredible potential. And it's out in September. The moment we hear anything additional, we'll be falling over ourselves to bring it to you - stay tuned.
