How time flies. It feels like just yesterday I was posting the announcement for Dive: The Medes Island Secret, and in a few days the game will be upon us. Set for release on July 26th, Dive is an underwater-themed platformer for WiiWare. The game is a side-scroller but uses 3D graphics for the 2.5D perspective we've seen in New Super Mario. In my opinion the game looks kind of like a retro take on Nintendo's Endless Ocean series. Dive will cost 1000 Wii points, which is around $10 for those of us not living in Nintendoland.
Dive: The Medes Islands Secret, a new and unique 2D Action game exclusively for the Wii platform from Cosmonaut Games, has confirmed its launch in North America for July 26th, and Europe for July 30th. Aiding the game's upcoming splash into the marketplace, we're pleased to share new game screenshots that showcase the game's beautiful, underwater scenery and dangerous adventures.
Players are challenged to dive into an undersea world filled with mysterious adventures and breathtaking aquatic scenery. The game Nintendo Power Magazine calls “absolutely gorgeous”, Dive: The Medes Islands Secret invites players to experience real-world locations captured in exquisite detail as they investigate the oceans mysterious landscapes in 2D action. Immersion and expansive real-world environments are captured in exquisite 3D detail. Dive: The Medes Islands Secret will be available for 1000 points via Wiiware download and is rated "E" [for Everyone].
About The Game:
Dive: The Medes Islands Secret invites players to investigate the mysteries of the deep as adventurer John Sanders, who is on a mission to unearth the long-since buried Temple of the Order of Medes Island. Through 10 levels and exotic real-world locations, including the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Santorini, players utilize the Wii Remote to navigate 2D underwater puzzle landscapes in search of answers to the oceans greatest mystery. As players complete level objectives, they encounter options to upgrade dive equipment including fins, air tanks and spear guns, necessary to reach the farthest depths of the ocean. New equipment grants the player new objectives and an ability to revisit dive locations for new, deeper experiences. Along the way, they will confront dangerous predators including giant octopi, sharks and stingrays. Many treasures, rewards and achievements await those brave enough to Dive into the unknown.
