Dead Space Wii Arrives September 29

Dead Space Extraction, the on-rails Wii shooter prequel to last year's creepy-crawly sci-fi horror title Dead Space (PC, PS3, 360) will arrive hit North American stores on September 29 and those in Europe on October 2, publisher EA announced today. nope

Made with the assistance of the original Dead Space team at Visceral Games, formerly EA Redwood Shores, the game offers branching paths and two-player co-op alongside a look at how the deadly space-zombie virus and its monsters infected the Ishimura.

The prequel also introduces "an important new heroine to the Dead Space universe," something that's likely to be followed up on in the impending Dead Space sequel. For more on Extraction and its first-person gameplay, check out our hands-on preview.
