'Battleship' (ALL) Details NDS/3DS And Wii Editions - Screens

As a stand-alone story from Universal Pictures' upcoming epic action-adventure of the same name, the Battleship videogame, inspired by the classic naval strategy game, is a seek-and-find adventure that offers a blend of strategic naval command and first-person action gameplay.

Battleship follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago.  Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a "siege on the sea," while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying "war on the shore."

Combining naval strategy simulation with first-person shooter gameplay, players fend off the enemy beachside while ordering attacks against their marine counterparts. Seamlessly switching between battlefield and overview "Battle Command" map, the Hasbro game is brought to life as carriers, frigates, cruisers, destroyers, submarines and the legendary USS Missouri Battleship pummel the enemy in a race to strategic points that turn the tide of battle.  The Battleship videogame is a next-gen marvel perfectly suited to turn nostalgic game junkies into battle-hardened admirals.

The Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS versions offer turn-based strategy gameplay as players are at the helm of their own naval fleet trying to fend off the alien advancement.

Players are in the middle of alien warfare on the high seas and are in charge of a naval fleet of real-world vessels like submarines, destroyers, patrol boats and more. Turn-based gameplay features elements of actual naval warfare command as well as Navy personnel characters that each have their own unique abilities and are key to defeating the alien invasion. With unlockable content and customizable modes, each BATTLESHIP videogame experience is exclusive to the Admiral behind the controller!
