Two years ago, one of the Xbox 360's standout launch titles was Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, a $5 downloadable game that helped establish digital distribution as a viable delivery service in the console space. Having done that, the franchise is now turning its attention to brick-and-mortar retailers with a full-priced follow-up in Geometry Wars: Galaxies for the DS and Wii.
Helping launch that attack on retail will be Vivendi Games division Sierra Entertainment, which today announced that both versions of the game have finished development and have been sent off for duplication. Geometry Wars: Galaxies is set for release on the Wii November 20, with the DS edition to follow on November 27.
In addition to the Retro Evolved game, each version of Galaxies also includes a campaign mode with more than 60 planets, power-ups, new enemies, and multiplayer action. Those who own only the Wii version will be able to download a version of Retro Evolved to their DS systems, while each version will unlock bonus levels in its counterpart.
Both games have been rated E for Everyone. The Wii version will retail for $39.99, with the DS edition fetching $29.99. For more on the games, check out GameSpot's latest impressions.
