Sega to Publish Wii FPS The Conduit

Sega has announced that it will handle the publishing duties for High Voltage Software's upcoming Wii first-person shooter The Conduit, which takes place in Washington DC following a "vicious alien invasion" by the Drudge. nope "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" explained Sega of America president Simon Jeffery.

"They have proven that graphical and technological innovation can be exciting to the Wii market," he added. "Sega is thrilled to partner with a team that truly shares our belief in the Wii's gaming potential beyond the casual market."

The Conduit is expected to arrive in spring 2009. For more on the game and its highly customizable control scheme, hit up our recent hands-on preview.
