Metal Gear Solid + The Day After Tomorrow= Disaster: Day Of Crisis
Ever since Nintendo bought up developers Monolith Studio(of Xenosaga fame), they have been all too quiet in the lab. Well now their latest project will be hitting the Wii in Japan during the month of October. The story follows a former military ops specialist who is now a disater relief worker who is called back into active duty after a terrorist group known as “Storm” steals a nuclear warhead and kidnaps a woman who looks very important. Disaster: Day Of Crisis looks to combine elements from all types of genres into one game. From the trailer you can see driving, shooting and rescuing type elements in the gameplay. This all new territory for Monolith for sure as their background is mostly in the rpg department. But I am pretty confident they’ll come through with a solid experience especially in the story and characters as Xenosaga had a pretty deep plot and twist to it’s characters. People complain of not having enough “mature” titles on the Wii so hopefully this will fill that genre for you when the game drops in November in the U.S. In the meantime, peep the trailer at what looks to be a Metal Gear Solid with a mix of the movie The Day After Tomorrow!
Nintendo of Europe official game description:
Taking on the bad guys is one thing, but facing off against the full force of nature is a whole new kind of challenge. In Disaster: Day of Crisis for Wii you’ll have to tackle both as you guide former U.S. Marine Raymond Bryce through an action-packed mission where everything that can go wrong, does.
Disaster: Day of Crisis will have you driving, swimming, running and shooting your way through 23 tense stages as the environment around you is laid to ruin by volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and tsunamis. And if nature wasn’t a force enough to be reckoned with, there’s a shadowy terrorist cell, named SURGE, that must be stopped at all costs.
With a military background and experience in the International Rescue Team, Ray is as well equipped as any man can be for the drama that awaits him. It’ll be up to you to guide him through the worst day of his life. You’ll use the unique capabilities of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to evade the forces of nature, disarm bombs and much more.
As you go, you’ll have to keep an eye on Ray’s health status – finding clear air to breathe if his lungs fill up with smoke or food to replenish his falling stamina. You’ll also need to perform daring rescue operations to save citizens who might be trapped under rubble or in danger of drowning and even administer life-saving first aid.
With intense cinematics, a raft of unlockable content and relentless action, Disaster: Day of Crisis guarantees thrills and spills that would leave the bravest of action heroes quaking in their boots.
* Guide former marine Ray as he tackles the terrorist cell SURGE and battles against the forces of nature.
