Losi sent out a release this morning that Star Trek Conquest is now shipping for both Wii and PS2 in North America. The Wii version is only $29.99 and the PS2 is a mere $14.99…that’s a pretty darn good deal. If you’re looking for a little turn-based strategy mixed with some arcade-like real-time combat (not unlike Star Trek Encounters) give it a look.
Full press release after the jump. Also, if you’re still looking for more coverage about the game, check out another interview with Frank Arnot over at Star Trek Games.
Bethesda Softworks Announces STAR TREK®: Conquest Now Shipping in North America
STAR TREK®: Conquest to be Available This Week for Wiiâ„¢ and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system
November 19, 2007 (Rockville, MD) â€“ Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that STAR TREK®: Conquest for the Wiiâ„¢ home video game system from Nintendo and PlayStation®2 system is shipping to North American retail stores. Conquest features a blend of strategy and intense action set in the STAR TREK: The Next Generation® era and will be available on store shelves throughout North America as early as tomorrow.
Take control of Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces and lead them in a campaign to control the Galaxy, one planet at a time. You can build and manage your growing empire in turn-based strategy, fully utilizing the Wii Remoteâ„¢ as you select and maneuver your Starships throughout the large, galactic map.
Strategically, you must effectively manage limited resources to expand your empire. You decide how to best achieve objectives by ordering your fleets and admirals, building support structures, researching technology, and engaging your enemies in combat.
Once battle is initiated, Conquest switches to a ship level tactical view allowing direct command of your ships as you engage in real-time combat. While maneuvering your Starship with the Nunchukâ„¢, you can take direct aim and fire away with the Wii Remoteâ„¢.
Conquest has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and will retail for an estimated MSRP of $29.99 on the Wiiâ„¢ and $14.99 on the PlayStation®2 system. For more information visit http://startrek.bethsoft.com.
