Disaster: Day of Crisis was a game that intrigued many with its short video clips during Wii's early days. Since then we've barely heard a thing about it, there were even whispers that the game had been axed. But fear not, Nintendo of Europe say it's coming out in October.
"Earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, flood, hurricane... and the small matter of an ex-military terrorist group with their hands on some nuclear weapons - and all in just 24 hours?! Welcome to Disaster: Day of Crisis, the action adventure game on Wii from Nintendo and Monolith Soft, sweeping across Europe on 24th October 2008 - guaranteed to bring out the survival skills in everyone".
Taking the role of an ex-marine named Raymond Bryce, you have to use his survival expertise to stay safe from natural disasters, while fending off SURGE (the terrorist group) through 23 stages of hi-octane storyline.
Some RPG elements are featured - Ray uses "Survival Points" gained from rescuing civilians and "Battle Points" from combating SURGE to increase his abilities. In combat segments, gameplay is said to take the form of an on-rails shooter.
Disaster: Day of Crisis will hit stores in Europe on October 24th.
