TopWare Resurrects Enclave Wii-Make

EnclaveShadowsOfTwilight

A Nintendo Wii adaptation of Starbreeze’s cult-favorite third-person fantasy action-RPG, Enclave, originally released a decade ago for Xbox and then ported to PC a year later, was supposed to be coming out during the summer of 2010. The release never materialized and all talk about the game ceased, leaving the impression that the project was shelved. Not so fast, amigo.

Completely out of the blue, TopWare has announced plans to launch the reborn Enclave Wii-make, subtitled Shadows of Twilight, in cooperation with the development studio Dojodoo Enterprise. Even more surprising, the game is scheduled to ship this month on May 22nd. Talk about coming out of nowhere fast.

Now the bad news. At this time, Enclave: Shadows of Twilight has only been announced for release in select European countries, including Germany, France and the UK. Hopefully some brave niche publisher out there decides to take a flier on importing it to the North American market.

Here’s some additional info about the game, followed by a gallery of new artwork:

“Enclave – Shadows of Twilight” masterfully weaves the features of the award winning 2003 PC release with the unique gameplay possibilities posed by the Nintendo Wii™ console. The result is a modernization of the fan favorite which elevates the fantasy RPG experience of the Enclave series to heights never before reached!

Innovative adaptations to the classic gameplay elements provide an entirely new experience, effectively expanding the level of immersion in all directions. Players now charge into battle brandishing the Wii™ Remote, laying waste to the hordes of enemies that stand in the hero’s way, all the while upgrading their character’s equipment by looting the corpses the throngs of fallen enemies left in their wake.

The riveting combat system is complimented by numerous artfully-crafted cut-scenes, vibrantly narrating the nuances of the hero’s epic journey as players explore the bountiful environments of the expansive fantasy world.
