Wii owners rejoice, High Voltage Software’s vaunted Wii-exclusive FPS The Conduit finally has a publisher! Sega, in a move that further strengthens the company’s position as one of the top third-party Wii publishers going right now, has inked a deal with High Voltage to publish and distribute The Conduit worldwide in spring 2009. The Conduit will not only push the Wii’s hardware capabilities to new heights, it’ll also take advantage of upcoming peripherals like the Wii Speak mic for voice chat in online multiplayer and the Wii MotionPlus Wii Remote control enhancer. Between this and MadWorld, Sega sure is poised to have a huge 2009. Press release quotes and screenshots after the break.

“The Conduit is one of the most talked-about Wii games this year and High Voltage Software has only scratched the surface of the game in terms of what they have shown so far,” says Simon Jeffery, President of SEGA of America, Inc. “They have proven that graphical and technological innovation can be exciting to the Wii market, and SEGA is thrilled to partner with a team that truly shares our belief in the Wii’s gaming potential beyond the casual market.”

“High Voltage Software’s partnership with SEGA to publish The Conduit represents an important milestone for this studio,” said Kerry Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software, Inc. “SEGA shares our vision for the title and its tremendous potential, which is why we chose them from a long list of potential partners. With their support, we are confident that The Conduit will deliver the definitive shooter experience that Wii fans have been waiting for.”
