Finally! Here are some brief details about Nintendo's monolithic Wii game.
Details have always been sketchy on Monolith Soft's new Wii title, Disaster: Day of Crisis. Originally scheduled to be released in 2007, the game was delayed into 2008. With the impending Japanese release, a few new details have been revealed about the Nintendo-published "survival action" game, courtesy Famitsu Magazine.

In Disaster: Day of Crisis you play as Ray, who a year ago lost his friend and co-worker, Steve. The story centers on Ray's attempts to rescue Steve's sister, Lisa, from kidnappers. His efforts are challenged by a series of natural disasters such as volcanoes, tsunamis, and hurricanes. On top of that, Ray has to foil a terrorist plot to set of a nuclear bomb.

Gameplay will work by moving around with the analog stick on the Nunchuk. The Wii Remote pointer aims whatever weapon or item Ray has equipped, which can be used with the B Trigger. Ray can also stop to help the wounded. One level shows Ray trying to escape a tsunami in a car, which is controlled by the player holding the Wii Remote in a horizontal position.

Disaster: Day of Crisis is slated for a July release in Japan. It is currently listed as 2008 in the US and Europe
 
Nintendo coy on Day of Crisis release
Thursday 28-Aug-2008 3:35 PM Nintendo doesn't deny leaked release date for disaster survival sim
Disaster: Day of Crisis has seen several delays and little-to-no coverage since its unveiling in 2006, so what the hell is happening with it?

Despite the complete lack of marketing or solid gameplay info, the game will be on shelves across Europe on October 26 if a leaked info document and a Danish retailer are to be believed. And who are we to argue?

We contacted Nintendo for the official line, but it would neither confirm or deny the rumour, only saying, "No announcement has been made."


Considering the game just recently passed through the Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification on August 13 (getting an M rating for "Violence, themes and infrequent coarse language"), October 26 would seem like a reliable tip.

We expect an official announcement very soon.
 
Official: Day of Crisis out October 24
Tuesday 2-Sep-2008 9:44 AM The rumours were almost right
Nintendo has confirmed that Disaster: Day of Crisis will be released in UK on October 24 - two days before previous rumours had suggested.


You play as Raymond Bryce in his fight to survive a series of epic natural disasters that strike the US.

Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods and hurricanes are some of the events that make Bryce's life just a little tougher than the usual.

It was a concept that had us intrigued the moment Nintendo announced it, but we find the game's sudden release - after almost two years of complete silence - worrying.
 
Day of Crisis gets Famitsu thumbs up

First review eases concerns with 34/40 score
We'll be honest with you. After long delays and total silence from Nintendo, we're not expecting much from Disaster: Day of Crisis. Surely a game is only kept tucked away like this if it's a bit of a dog, right?

Not if the first review is anything to go by. Japanese publication Famitsu has scored Nintendo's mysterious third-person adventure a whopping 34/40, getting 9/10 scores from two of the magazine's four reviewers, according to NeoGAF.

Unfortunately, translations from Japan fail to detail exactly what is said in the review, but a score like that pretty much speaks for itself.

The game's out over here on October 24, which means we should see earlier versions of it soon
 
I thought this game went the way of Project HAMMER. Good to here it's alive and actually good.
 
Famitsu gave it a 34/40. That's about an 8-8.5 out of 10 which isn't bad at all.

This may be worth picking up.
 
I have a feeling this game will be like an amazing blockbuster movie.
 
That is the feeling I get from it. It's going to be a game equivilent of a summer popcorn action movie that will be thrilling, yet slightly shallow, but you'll come back to watch it periodically for the adrenaline fueled story and action.

I am really looking forward to the game.
