Okay, Dead Space coming to the Nintendo Wii isn't exactly a surprise (we reported it weeks ago). However, it is official today. Electronic Arts has announced that Dead Space Extraction -- a Wii-exclusive and an all-new installment in the survival horror series -- should arrive in fall 2009.
Dead Space Extraction was developed by EA Redwood Shores. It's a prequel to the original PS3/Xbox 360/PC game. Dead Space Extraction's gameplay is a mixture of puzzles and combat that feature new weapons and enemies, as well as a co-op option. The plot centers on colonists trying to escape the infected colony of Aegis VII. Players will control a new female character who must save her crew from certain death--kinda like Ripley from Alien.
