    Unbelievable to see an DS game from a few years ago finally get released! Now its my most wanted DS game...though I think I only wanted Kirby Mass Attack and that's it...yeah.

    Old trailer:

    As the trailer indicates it'll be more of a Flashback/Blackthorne style action game rather than a simply run and gun game. WayForward have spent a very long time on this title, which shows in its incredibly detailed looks and footage and it looks to be one of the last great games for the DS

    Press Release:
    LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (July 20th, 2011) – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced Aliens: Infestation™ for Nintendo DS™, bringing the action-packed experience of the popular ALIENS™ film series to Nintendo’s best-selling handheld console in September 2011. Players will be able to recruit and play as 19 different marines, each with their own unique dialogue, and explore iconic environments including the Sulaco, the Derelict ship, and LV-426. Aliens: Infestation is an action-heavy side-scrolling exploration game and will be part of the ALIENS expanded universe.

    Developed by WayForward in collaboration with Gearbox Software, Aliens: Infestation will pit players against the overwhelming Xenomorph hive using a vast selection of iconic weapons and tools from the series. Featuring character designs by popular comic artist Chris Bachalo and equipped with an upgrade and collectibles system, Aliens: Infestation will allow players to explore large-scale versions of some of the most fan-beloved environments of the iconic films.

    “In contrast to our other Aliens title in the works at the moment, Aliens: Infestation delivers a game that focuses more on exploration of the expanded universe,” comments Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing, SEGA West. “WayForward really put all their passion into making Aliens: Infestation the definitive Aliens experience that you can fit in your pocket.”

    Aliens: Infestation will be available September 2011 on Nintendo DS. For more information about the game, please visit www.sega.com/aliensinfestation.

    I`m so glad this actually gets released. Some weeks ago you already posted some news on this and gladly they turned out to be true.

    Definitely my most wanted DS game, since like I said it looks intense!

    WayForward also made Contra 4, right?

    Huh. Guess I should download the Alien movies and do a crash course of the series.

    Oh that's beautiful, gorgeous 2D pixel art at it's best. Metroidvania-Contra in the Aliens universe... drools...

    At least I don't have to hope for a European release, since the DS has no region lock.

    Yep, probably the last great DS game I will get.

    Here you can find a new video for this game. Looks awesome!

    Also sorry for the bump but I think the video is well worth it, since it`s also answering some questions [​IMG]
