Scarface heads to Wii

Wave a chainsaw this summer.

Scarface is coming to the Nintendo Wii this summer, Vivendi Games has announced today.

As expected, the biggest difference from last year's PS2 and Xbox versions will be the control system, with the motion-sensing abilities of the Wii remote promising to be put to use in various interesting ways.

"You walk, drive, navigate and pilot boats using the nunchuck, and then you shoot pointing at the screen with the Wiimote," a Vivendi spokesperson told Eurogamer this afternoon. "You can use a chainsaw with the Wiimote like hand-to-hand combat, so you can wave it around and wiggle it about."

"You can gesticulate as well. On the PS2 and Xbox versions you can swear and swear and swear to increase your kill factor. Well, on the Wii you'll do it through gestures, so the angrier you get at the screen, the higher you'll push Tony's kill factor."

Scarface: The World is Yours is based on the 1983 classic film by Brian De Palma, which saw Al Pacino stuff his nose in mountains of coke before going absolutely bananas, while also managing to build a pretty successful drug empire.

The game takes takes place after the final mansion shoot out, and (look away now if you've never seen the film) assumes Tony Montana survived the fight and lived to see another day, posing the question: what would happen next?

As you can tell from our review elsewhere on the site, we rather liked it, too.
