WiiWare fans can get their hands on Hudson's Onslaught this week. The downloadable game features 4 player co-op play ONLINE. That's right folks, through the magic of the internet you too can play with friends over the intertubes.
The game pits humans against insectoid aliens, and the cooperative mode looks a bit like a surival mode. Think...Starship Troopers meets waggle wand.
