During EA's recent third-quarter earnings call, CEO John Riccitiello announced that a number of the company's new intellectual properties would see Wii releases, including the survival horror game Dead Space. Today, the company has confirmed that the game will be making it to Nintendo's console later in the year, and formally announced the title as Dead Space Extraction.

According to EA, Dead Space Extraction will "marry the innovative motion controls of the Wii Remote with a frenetic first-person perspective to create a new action-packed horror experience." The game will involve a new heroine who joins up with space colonists trying to escape from infection on the Aegis VII mining colony. The game itself will also feature new weapons, puzzles, and a co-op multiplayer mode for the first time.

Those concerned that the game may be toned down for its Wii appearance can take assurance from the promises of Glen Schofield, VP and general manager of EA Redwood Shores. "As we were developing Dead Space, we realised that there was so much of the story going untold. Dead Space Extraction tells that story with all of the intensity, blood, and gore that fans would expect."

Dead Space Extraction is expected to spook the Wii this fall.
