In the original Jaws film, the titular great white shark killed numerous swimmers before ultimately meeting his demise. However, the shark is coming back for vengeance this year in Jaws: Ultimate Predator.

Set 35 years after the events of Jaws, Majesco's Jaws: Ultimate Predator will be released on Nintendo systems the Wii and 3DS this fall. The 3DS version of Ultimate Predator is currently in development at n-Space and will be produced by MicroProse.

As for its content, Ultimate Predator for the 3DS has gamers taking on "an army of shark hunters" by using the system's touch screen to perform attacks and to dodge.

The Wii version of Ultimate Predator is in development at Tectonic Studios and takes a similarly violent route. It also has players assuming the role of the great white shark while hunting and killing prey with 20 unique attack combinations.

Gamers will take on bosses like the Tiger Shark, Killer Whale, and Sea Serpent, which are creatures that Majesco says "match Jaws in strength and size." Further, the game will be set in Hawaii and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as Amity Island, the setting of the iconic attack from the film.

The most recent Jaws game was 2006's critically panned Jaws: Unleashed, which was also published by Majesco. For more on that title, check out GameSpot's full review.
