Last year’s hit action-horror game Dead Space is now coming to the Wii, EA has confirmed today. Dead Space Extraction is more than a gimped port of the original PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 release too. It’s a brand new game built from the ground up specifically for Wii.

Extraction is actually a prequel following a group of space colonists attempting to flee the Aegis VII mining colony after a nasty infection breaks out. The game will play out from a “frenetic first person perspective” (that sounds kinda like a light-gun style game to me) and introduce new characters (including a new heroine), weapons, enemies, puzzles and some form of co-op multiplayer.

“We could not be more excited to extend Dead Space into an experience exclusive to the Wii. Nintendo has a wonderful history in the horror genre and we are thrilled to build on that tradition with Dead Space Extraction,” said Glen Schofield, VP and General Manager of EA Redwood Shores studio. “As we were developing Dead Space, we realized that there was so much of the story going untold. Dead Space Extraction tells that story with all of the intensity, blood and gore that fans would expect.”

Dead Space Extraction is scheduled for release this fall. Hit up the official Dead Space website for the unveil trailer.
