Ubisoft Announces Killer Freaks from Outer Space for Wii U, First Screen Shots

We’ve heard quite a few developers backing the Wii U. But Ubisoft is already knee deep into the system, producing their very own exclusive title, Killer Freaks from Outer Space.

The title is a first person shooter from Ubisoft with tongue-cheek-humor and a load of aliens called “Freaks,” who kind of look like demented Rabbids. Players mow through packs of Freaks using the Wii U controller in single player. You can aim using the gyro sensor. Ubisoft believes it will add a new level of precision combining both of the analog sliders and the gyro controls.

Right now the title includes four player co-op, which according to GoNintendo, is online. The title also features local competitive multiplayer. One player uses a classic controller to play on the TV screen while the other player uses the Wii U controller and its screen. The Wii U player has a map where he can spawn enemies and attempt to kill the player.

What makes this title stand out, aside from looking to be just plain weird overall, is that there are actually screens of it running on the Wii U hardware, which you can find after the jump. Keep in mind these are early screenshots, so some things may not be as pretty as you’d expect yet. There’s also a live-action/CG trailer after the jump.

  1. This is just another game whose desciption paints a sad picture. One player uses a classic controller to kill enemies and the other uses the new controller to spawn them. All the MP games I have read about use on WiiU controller and either wiimotes or classic controllers. Has anyone seen one piece of evidence to indicate the Wii U can run more than one Wii U touchsceen controller at a time? As far as I know, Nintendo hasn’t said one way or the other.
