Posted on May 7, 2008, Stephany Ubisoft Announces Protöthea WiiWare Title

prototheaToday, Ubisoft announced that Protöthea will be available in May for WiiWare in North America. Protöthea, Ubisoft’s exclusive WiiWare launch window title, is a 3D top-down vertical scrolling shooter game putting players in complete control of a last-generation spaceship via the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. The easy-to-play game introduces new concepts to the classic game style while mixing genres and is promising to remind players of classic arcade games of yore.

The storyline immerses players into an adventure where they will need to destroy an asteroid called “Maqno 01″ and sabotage the plans of a political faction called “The Core.” Players will guide their ship through multiple missions on futuristic planets where enemy AI will change based on the player’s actions – so there are no predictable enemy paths, and therefore always a different game play experience. Players will have eight different air-to-air weapons and two different air-to-ground bombs at their disposal, and can attack however they choose. In addition, there is a special power that decelerates time, allowing players to easily avoid enemy fire while they are able to move rapidly and attack enemies.
