Animales de la Muerte for PC, PSN, XBLA

Conduit dev's zombie shooter ditches WiiWare.

Animales de la Muerte, a formerly Wii-exclusive twin-stick shooter from Conduit developer High Voltage, has crossed the floor and will now launch on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade later this year.

The game, which sees you gunning down hoardes of undead animals in order to liberate uninfected critters from the city zoo, was originally unveiled as a Wii title in 2008.

Now, nearly three years later, High Voltage has announced it will not be heading to a Nintendo platform after all.

"We felt like it was maybe a better fit on the next gen platforms, both content-wise and gameplay-wise," studio mouthpiece Eric Stoll told Eurogamer. "We can have more enemies on screen, and it's probably a little more acceptable to have really over-the-top violence in an Xbox game than on the Wii.

"Sure," he added when pushed on whether commercial concerns played a role too. "That definitely factored into our decision as well. I'd definitely say Xbox Live games outsell WiiWare games."

The game features two player co-operative and competitive modes, and will launch later this year. Take a look at the screens below for more.
