Sega announces March launch for Madworld for Wii

Sega has announced that Madworld for the Nintendo Wii will be released in March 2009.

Developed by PlatinumGames, Madworld is described as an "inventive third-person action game with a unique black and white graphical style, creating a beautifully rendered gameworld reminiscent of graphic novel".

Promising irreverent humour and over-the-top violence, Sega says the game will deliver a "visceral and unique gaming experience currently missing on the Wii system".

Gamers will play as Jack playing "Death Watch", a murderous game created by a terrorist group with puzzle solving, fighting and "ultra-violent" mini games.
