High Voltage Software's Wii shooter The Conduit seems to be nearing the final stretch as publisher Sega confirms the game is now scheduled for release this June 23rd, cemeting that elusive "Summer 2009" launch. The Conduit has been building buzz for itself thanks to the developer's drive to push the boundaries of what the Wii is capable of technically; the game will feature High Voltage's proprietary Quantum 3 game engine to deliver the goods. Will it live up to the hype and boost the profile of hardcore gaming on the Wii? We can only go by footage like these for the time being.
Speaking of multiplayer, The Conduit promises 13 modes for online play across 9 different maps. The WiiSpeak peripheral is supported for ingame voice chat.
