Wii-S duo steal Geometry Wars
Nintendo’s sell-happy tag team is getting a version of Geometry Wars, the highly lauded downloadable feather in the Xbox Live Arcade’s cap.
The game — Geometry Wars: Galaxies — is essentially a spiritual sequel with the full original thrown in. That’s not all. Let Joystiq tell you.
Other juicy details include cooperative multiplayer, and wireless sharing of a multiplayer DS demo of the game. The DS version can actually share a full copy of Retro Evolved wirelessly with other DSs, but perhaps what’s more exciting is that the Wii version can do the exact same thing, making Galaxies the first game we know of to offer Wii-to-DS wireless downloading.
The preview also gives some detail on control schemes. The Wii version has players using the nunchuk to move the ship, with the Wii remote functioning as a cursor to indicate the direction being fired in. The DS version, on the other hand, uses the d-pad to move the ship, and the stylus to aim and fire.
There’s video of the Wii version on Gamespot if you’re interested. Tell me what you think.
