Wet towels off September 15

Bethesda and A2M's stylized third-person action adventure emerges onto Xbox 360, PS3 this fall; Euro launch set for Sept. 18.

Artificial Mind and Movement's Wet was perhaps the most risque of Vivendi Games' portfolio to be cut as part of the Activision Blizzard merger in 2008. As such, it wasn't altogether surprising that the game was one of the last to land a new publishing deal. But land a deal A2M did, as the Canadian studio announced in May that Fallout 3 purveyor Bethesda Softworks would serve as the game's publisher on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall.

Girl + Sword = Good Time

Today, Bethesda and A2M nailed down a specific release date for Wet, saying the game would slip onto retail shelves in North America on September 15, with the European launch following on September 18. A stylized, story-oriented third-person shooter, Wet quickly became known for its double-entendre title, nubile heroine, and genre-bending mix of third-person shooter and Prince of Persia-esque acrobatics.

Despite Wet's provocative aesthetic, A2M studio head Denis Lacasse told GameSpot in May that the game is less about titillation as it is creating a unique gaming experience. "Our game is really about style and over-the-top action/universe," he said. "We are trying to bring to the game space a fresh style and unique genre, combined with innovative game mechanics, in a package that is daring and a lot of fun."

Wet looks promising. It could be awful, but so could any of the high profile releases coming this fall. This is definitely one to keep your eyes on. If it delivers it will be awesome.

The game looks good to me. I don't know why some of you are so skeptical about it. Maybe it's because the main character is a women........ :-\

KokutenNagakiI said:"I dont care what anyone says. I love crazy over the top action games, this game looks really cool." That's all that sells anymore. IDK who "said" that to you lolz.

The game fails to interest me, perhaps when the reviews are in I see what this game has to offer !

Gamespot word puns sucks! @spudster007 Bethesda is only publishing because bought the publishing rights from activision like EA should have done with brutal legend. It is not made by one of the bethesda developers and mostly has the defunct Sierra hands on it. In conclusion, while this game is published by bethesda it has nothing to do with bethesda developers.

They should work on this for another year and give us some variety in the gameplay. It just seems like you're doing the same thing over and over again I see a 6 or 7 for this game.

Last time I heard "stylized" and 3rd person shooter" in the same way was when "Stranglehold" tanked. And considering I hated that game, and "Wet" looks somewhat similar, I will stay far away and buy one of the other 80 games that are coming this fall.

SWEET A RELEASE DATE!! I don't care what the shooter haters say. We need more great shooters and Wet should be a great one!

I don't know if it's fresh or unique, but there's nothing wrong with creating a fun, entertaining, over-the-top action title. Devil May Cry and God of War don't have to be the only members of that club. If Wet looks good and plays well, that's good enough for me.

Calling this game fresh, unique, or innovative sounds like a REALLY big stretch. If it's done well, though, it should be a fun, dumb actioner. Eliza Dushku is the perfect voice actor for something like this.

Wet looks like fun. I had a blast with Stranglehold so I'm getting this.
