The reveal was announced this weekend at PAX 2011 during the Gearbox panel. While the game isn’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: Risky’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. Here’s hoping that they knock this one out of the park!
