"Back in May, DS-x2 broke the news that Alone in the Dark 5: Near Death was heading for the Nintendo DS and Wii. Our sources, several European retailers, were not able to back up these claims. Today, we can enlighten all with the news that the game is indeed heading for the Nintendo DS and Wii.
Atari has confirmed the existance of both versions, and added that the title is heading for the PC, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, PSP and Xbox 360 as well. Not much information on the Nintendo versions has been released yet, but we did get confirmation that the Nintendo DS and PSP versions will be based on the console versions and feature special 'functionalities'.
On Wii, Atari was able to explain the controls briefly. In short, Alone in the Dark uses the Wiimote to control the camera, aim and shoot your weapon and control just about every object in your environment (ranging from fire extinguisher to tables and chairs). The Nunchuk-controller is used to move your character.
One of the special functionalities on the handheld versions has been revealed to us already: the PSP title can be linked up with its Playstation 3 counterpart. During the game, PSP owners can receive txt-messages (SMS) from other characters within the game. Also, the PSP will be able to display a realtime map while you're playing on the Playstation 3."
