Admittedly, a few of a us did a "WTF?" double-take when Electronic Arts said it would be bringing their third-person action-horror title Dead Space to the Wii. But it's happening, and here are your first details ...
The game will be called Dead Space Extraction, and will act as a prequel to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions that hit shelves late last year. The game tells the story of space colonists trying to escape an infection on Aegis VII, a space mining colony, introducing a new female character into the mix. The game will feature new weapons, new enemies, puzzle, and -- here's a big one -- cooperative multiplayer.
Dead Space Extraction will, of course, be all motion-controlley; EA hasn't revealed how they'll implement that into the game, however. The trailer (after the jump) shows us little -- it's a cacophony of space horrors! -- but has some thinking the game may be play out light-gun-style, a la Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles.
We should know more soon; Dead Space Extraction is scheduled for a fall release.

I wasn't sold on the dynamic nature of how the game progressed, and as we all know, zombies have been literally done to death in the past five years. Then, I got a chance to actually play it. How many days until June 14th again?more
