Medal of Honor to be Heroic Online on Wii, PSP

Following up on last year's Medal of Honor Heroes for PSP, Electronic Arts has announced that it will be bringing Medal of Honor Heroes 2 to both Wii and PSP. During Nintendo's E3 press conference last week, the console manufacturer stated that a "new Medal of Honor game" would be optimized for the just-announced Wii Zapper gun peripheral. Today's announcement from EA confirms "full support of the Wii Zapper."

Both the Wii and PSP versions of the game will feature online multiplayer with support for up to 32 simultaneous players. In addition to the traditional single-player campaign of both versions, the Wii game will include an exclusive light gun-esque mode which turns the game into an old school on-rails shooter.

Medal of Honor Heroes 2 is being developed by EA Canada's Team Fusion, the group behind the original Heroes game. EA plans to ship the game this holiday.
