Scarface Shoots Up Wii This Summer

March 2, 2007

Officials of Vivendi Games’ Sierra Entertainment division announced plans to bring a version of Scarface: The World Is Yours to the Wii this summer. As with the other versions of the game, Scarface for the Wii will present a sequel storyline to the feature film that asks “What if Tony Montana survived the mansion shootout?”

Scarface: The World Is Yours for Wii will include graphics and gameplay changes by way of what Sierra calls “optimizations,” as well as a new control scheme that takes advantage of the Wii remote and nunchuck, as well as other unspecified “alterations for the Wii audience.”

“Bringing Scarface: The World Is Yours to Wii is an exciting opportunity to take an already amazing game and add an incredible twist, thanks to the Wii console’s unique Remote controller abilities,” said Cindy Cook, chief strategy and marketing officer for Vivendi Games. “Adding motion-sensitive elements to a game that already includes an incredible celebrity cast, Hollywood production values and non-stop action, delivers a gaming experience unlike any other, truly bringing the world of Tony Montana to vivid life.”
