Sniper Elite V2 coming to Wii U

GamePad features include enemy tracking

Sniper Elite V2 is headed to Wii U, developer Rebellion and publisher 505 Games have both confirmed.


The game casts players as Karl Fairburne, an American OSS agent in Berlin during the closing days of World War 2. Karl is tasked with tracking down key people involved with the development of Germany's V-2 rocket program.

Inevitably, he'll have to gun down Nazis and Soviet Russians along the way, and with the Wii U's GamePad players will be able to tag enemies and booby-traps, track enemy locations and monitor activity.

"Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U," said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley.

"It's been a challenge to get it right, but thanks to our team and the fantastic support of our partners at 505 Games we believe we've brought the unique gameplay to a whole new platform,"

The Sniper Elite V2 UK release date is set for Spring 2013.
