Nintendo, Showtime Team for Dexter Video Game for Wii

By Brian Briggs follow me on Twitter.

 

Los Angeles, CA – In a joint announcement, Nintendo, creator of the Wii video game console, and Showtime, producer of the TV series Dexter, have teamed together for a video game based on the series.

The TV series follows the life of Miami police blood spatter expert and sociopathic serial killer Dexter Morgan as he hunts down and kills people who deserve it.

The game uses the Wii's familiar motion-controlled Wiimote to simulate the hacking and slashing of the victims.  Players can choose to play either Dexter or another serial killer to be either the hunter or the hunted.  If they choose Dexter they must find a serial killer, and murder him before he reaches a certain level of kills. 

As a serial killer, they must accumulate a number of victims before they are hunted down by Dexter.

The game will be the Wii's most violent game to date, earning an Adult rating from the ESRB.

Nintendo's head of US marketing, Kevin Willis, said, "Our sales momentum has slowed as people grow tired of cute, puffy characters.  Dexter will satisfy the bloodlust most Wii fans secretly harbor."

The game will ship with blood packs which gamers can create permanent blood spatter marks in their gaming rooms.  It will also ship with a body dismemberment manual and a "How to Hide Your Murderous Tendencies from the Police" pamphlet.

Willis said the extras will help create a link between video games and violence that never existed before.  "They keep claiming it, so we want to make it happen," said Willis.

Parent organizations are already decrying the game, calling it a training tool for serial killers. 

Willis warned the protesters, "We're posting pictures of you all on the Dexter game message boards, so you might want to think twice before showing your face again."

The game will ship in time for the Dexter season premiere on Showtime September 27.
