Late last month, online retailers began posting listings for a Wii version of Rampage: Total Destruction for the Wii. While gamers then had only the word of those stores to confirm their city-crushing needs would be satiated, now they have an official announcement.

A statement from Midway Games today revealed that the game is coming to the Wii "'this winter," but a Midway rep narrowed that date even further, saying it would be released in 2006. There will be a total of 40 playable characters, 10 more than the GameCube and PlayStation 2 versions of Total Destruction, which were released in April. Among the new characters are Sarah the Spider, Plucky the Chicken, and Fifi the Rabid French Poodle.

There were no indications on how the game would use the Wii-mote controller, but Midway promises more details later. The Wii version of Rampage: Total Destruction has not yet been rated or priced. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's review of the GameCube version.
