The worse fears of Nintendo Wii owners desperate for a Doctor Who game have been realised – Return to Earth has been delayed!
Intended to be released on November 12th alongside the Nintendo DS title Evacuation Earth, there doesn’t seem to have been any confirmed reason for the delay, however:
A spokesperson for Deep Silver told DS that it will now be available on November 19 in the UK.
So thankfully the delay isn’t too long. If you weren’t aware of the game or what it entails, this should explain the lot:
Young fans can play the role of the Doctor and Amy Pond in this gripping 3D action adventure to help the starship Lucy Gray return to Earth.
Unravel a sinister plot by the Cybermen and prevent the Daleks from retrieving a dangerous Time Axis as your explore the deserted starship Lucy Gray. Avoid and outsmart your enemies using stealth, distraction devices and target-shooting elements found around the ship.
Staring the voices of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, this brand new official Doctor Who storyline includes two types of mini-game; the Gravity Gun and Sonic Screwdriver Game, which specifically make use of the Wii technology.
It certainly seems quite different to the PC- and Mac-based Doctor Who: The Adventure Games titles, and unlike those the title isn’t free; Return to Earth has an RRP of Â£34.99, although it is currently available for Â£25.91 from Amazon.
Evacuation Earth has been scripted by Oli Smith who spoke to us recently – look out for the interview in the next couple of days!
