El Segundo, CA – January 3, 2007 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced that Target: Terror™ is currently in development for the Nintendo Wii™. The game is based on Target: Terror Gold, the top-grossing arcade game of 2006 and designed by arcade pioneer Eugene Jarvis, founder of Raw Thrills, Inc., the developer of Big Buck Hunter PRO.

Target: Terror is the first game from Konami that will be compatible with Nintendo’s new Wii Zapper™; players will be able to capture the old-school flavor of fast-paced light gun shooters from gaming’s glory days of the arcades. Target: Terror puts players in the role of an elite counter-terrorist agent charged with protecting the U.S. from an ever-increasing wave of terrorist threats.

With a full-scale assault spanning the entire nation, players can show these terrorist thugs who’s boss, using an assortment of lethal weapons including machine guns, grenade launchers, freeze guns, flamethrowers and even an orbital laser beam from space. Target: Terror also features a unique “Justice Mode,” allowing players to dual-wield weapons for twice the mayhem.

Target: Terror also features an unlockable offering of fun and humorous mini-games inspired by a variety of arcade classics.

Developed by Leviathan Games, Target: Terror is expected to explode onto the Wii in Q1 of 2008. For more information, visit the website at www.konami.com.

    I was expecting Castlevania Wii for your next title Konami, not this.

  8. johnnymilkshark says:

    There was a reason this was never released when it was developed in 1994. Keep it that way, Konami.

    My optimism in any good third party support for the Wii continues to shrink.

  16. Paul says:

    No, bad Nintendo. Seal of quality my ass…

  17. Jake (The Forums Administrator) says:

    If it’s 2 bucks, I’d buy it.

  18. questworld says:

    Right, and if a real seal of quality was in effect, people will be stringing up Nintendo for being a authoritarian ruler like history recounts them to be during the NES/SNES era.

    This is all Konami. They’ve yet to offer anything substantial since the SNES era (I don’t know about the N64 but the Cube era effort was abysmal with the exception of Twin Snakes which took Nintendo and Silicon Knights to even get it there). Seriously, where’s our MGS and Silent Hill games. Where’s the effort along MGS4/MGS3 lines.
