Retail Radar: MOH Heroes 2 declares Wii-Day?
Second iteration of PSP-only Medal of Honor may be headed to Nintendo's console, along with Alvin & the Chipmunks; Warhawk Bundle also spotted.
GameStop continues its tradition of stealing the thunder from companies' big reveal this week with a pair of product listings for Nintendo's everyman console. While one of those listings is most definitely situated in the kids-to-nostalgia-seeking-adults category, the other resides on the polar end of that spectrum.
Released last year as a PlayStation Portable exclusive, Medal of Honor Heroes brought EA's franchised WWII shooter series to the handheld format for the first time. Apparently, that experience will see an extended second tour, as GameStop has product gamespaces for Medal of Honor Heroes 2 on the PSP and Wii. The Wii listing is of greater interest due to the fact that no Wii version of Medal of Honor: Airborne--which ships for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC later this year--is planned. (The first Wii MOH game, Medal of Honor: Vanguard, was released earlier this year.) According to the retail site, Heroes 2 will ship November 6 at $49.99 for the Wii version and $39.99 for the PSP version. As of press time, EA had not commented on a potential Wii version of the game.
Created in 1958, Alvin & the Chipmunks have had their high-pitched squeals adapted to all manner of media, including cartoons, movies, and live-action plays. However, gamers' ear drums may still be in peril, as the second GameStop reveal of the day is for a Wii rendition of Alvin & the Chipmunks. According to online retailer, the crooning critters are slated to ship December 4 for $49.99, but no official announcement of the game has yet been made.
Also appearing on GameStop's Web site today is a listing for a Warhawk Bundle. Accompanying the online-only game in the bundle is a Jabra BT125 brand Bluetooth headset and bonus content in the form of videos, trailers, and behind-the-scenes footage for Warhawk.
Please note, while retailer listings frequently jump the gun on publishers' product announcements, they should not be taken as final confirmation of a game's existence; nor should the absence of a listing be considered as proof that a game isn't coming to a given platform.
