PS2 and Wii have joined the platforms (PC, Xbox 360 and PS3) set to receive the new Alone in the Dark game from Atari.
So, PS2 and Wii versions (screens of which can be foundhere)are being developed by Hydravision (Eden Games is handling the other versions), and feature the same storyline as the previously announced outings for the revival of the venerable survival horror series.
Oh, the storyline? "...over the course of one apocalyptic night, hero Edward Carnby must uncover the earth-shattering secret hidden in New York's iconic Central Park."
According to Atari, the PS2 and Wii versions of Alone in the Dark push respective hardware "hard", "incorporating many of the gameplay features found in the Xbox 360 version".
Wii's Remote and Nunchuk are used to manipulate objects in real-time, and Atari's exec VP Mathias Hautefort says Alone in the Dark on Wii is "perfectly adapted to the gameplay thanks to the console's unique controllers."
Alone in the Dark first terrified us in 1992, and we've been eyeing the revival with some interest. Set in present day, we're being promised a "heart-stopping action survival experience". If it literally stops our hearts, we'll be suing from beyond the grave.
And we won't be alone...
