The reveal was announced this weekend at PAX 2011 during the Gearbox panel. While the game isnâ€™t directly connected to the Wii U title Aliens: Colonial Marines, it will have a few easter eggs that tie the two together.
WayForward Technologies is known for their ability to craft well made retro style games, and has a track record of such titles as Contra 4, Shantae: Riskyâ€™s Revenge, and A Boy and His Blob. If there is any studio with the talent to bring the best out of the Aliens franchise it is WayForward. Hereâ€™s hoping that they knock this one out of the park!
