JAWS: Ultimate Predator circles Nintendo 3DS and Wii
Majesco Entertainment have today unveiled that JAWS: Ultimate Predator is currently in development for Nintendo 3DS and Wii, each being executive produced by Microprose and under license from Universal Partnerships & Licensing.
Set 35 years after the events of the iconic movie, JAWS: Ultimate Predator is described as being “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.”
The Nintendo 3DS version of the game will place you in control of the hulking terror of the seas, experiencing the action through the eyes of the beast in glasses-free sterescopic 3D. Developed by n-Space and produced by Microprose, you’ll be pitted against an army of shark hunters as you continue to unleash deadly attack combinations as Feeding Frenzy and Corkscrew Shred.
On Wii, you’ll have 20 different advanced attack combos as you protect your underwater domain from human interlopers. You’ll utilise a Rage Meter, whilst confronting deadly bosses of the sea such as the Tiger Shark, Killer Whale and Sea Serpent. Real-life environments will also feature including lush underwater settings from Hawaii and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the infamous location where it all started – Amity Island.
“The Jaws movie defined a generation and forever changed our perception of sharks,” comments Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco Entertainment. “Sinking your teeth in as the ultimate predator is a strong and compelling concept underlined by the performance of our best-selling Jaws console games years ago. Never before released for Nintendo platforms, JAWS: Ultimate Predator lets a new generation experience that same visceral underwater thrill.”
