WiiWare seems to be beefing up on games lately. Swedish publisher Legendo Entertainment is looking to add three more to the growing archive with the Pearl Harbor Trilogy, based on their PC game, Attack on Pearl Harbor. It's still a work in progress, but if they push through with it, we're looking at a neat little flight sim on WiiWare.
The trilogy is an episodic re-interpretation of the PC original, aiming to run at 60fps. Executive producer Bjorn Larsson is pretty excited about the game's move into the Wii. The Wii Remote controller is a perfect match for aerial combat we are currently trying a variety of control-schemes to see what works best, we want to bring players as close as possible to flying in their living rooms," he said.
The premiere episode, "Red Sun Rising" will have players manning the ****pit of a P40 Warhawk and the F4U Corsair - two very prominent aircraft in World War II. You'll be up against invading A6M2 Zero fighters and other notable Japanese planes, and you get to dogfight in the skies of the Pacific Theater, Pearl Harbor, Wake Island and the Battle of Midway.
Red Sun Rising is scheduled for a Winter 2009 release, only on WiiWare. For more info, you can check the publisher's press release through here.
