Looks like this is the real deal. GameStop has pre-orders running online here. Amazon also has a product page running and includes a May 21 release date, which makes much more sense. Both retailers list a $49.99 price point.
Sniper Elite V2 has long been rumored for Wii U, but publisher 505 Games has never made any official announcements. But now it appears that the nearly year-old shooter will be coming to the console in just a few months.
GameStop casually lists the Wii U version of Sniper Elite V2 in its weekly ad – boxart and all. Consumers can begin pre-ordering the title, which apparently releases on May 24. The only red flag I see is that May 24 is a Friday. In North America, games typically launch earlier in the week.
Perhaps we’ll be hearing something official from 505 Games soon?
