Bone-shattering sniping -- now with motion control!

Sniper Elite V2, the stealth-action World War 2 sniper shooter that released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC last year, has been announced for release on Wii U, though no specified date was given.

Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U," said Jason Kingsley, CEO of developer Rebellion Games. "It’s been a challenge to get it right, but thanks to our team and the fantastic support of our partners at 505 Games we believe we’ve brought the unique gameplay to a whole new platform.”

Sniper Elite V2 features bone-crushing, cinematic kill shots visible through the game's x-ray cam -- which shows the innards of your enemy as the bullet penetrates them. You'll see a ton of eyes popping and testicles busting. Seriously.
