Real Heroes: Firefighter semi-sequel in development for Wii U

Nathaniel McClure, CEO of Scientifically Proven Entertainment, recently spoke with Nintendo Life about Blood of the Werewolf, which is coming to the Wii U eShop. During the interview, he revealed that his company is working on a semi-sequel to their Wii game Real Heroes: Firefighter.

Here's a brief description from McClure himself:

We are also working on a sequel of sorts to Firefighter. It will be an Unreal Engine-driven, episodic action-packed shooter. As a player you will fear for your life in the same familiar fashion as the big cinematic shooters but driven by some new unique mechanics — the destructive fire enemy and the ever changing, choice-driving, destructible environments. The first person mechanics are the same as what you are used to, but the harrowing life and death experience in the face of a 1500 degree wall of fire or a collapsing city tower is something totally unique and new. The Wii U and its dual-screen ability on the GamePad make it a perfect fit. We think you will love it.

Real Heroes: Firefighter is available on the Wii and 3DS, putting players in the shoes of a fireman dousing flaming buildings and rescuing people from collapsing structures. The Wii version received mixed reviews and currently has a Metacritic average of 67% based on 18 reviews from critics. IGN gave it a score of 7.7 out of 10.

McClure also mentioned that his team is working on a third game for the Wii U eShop called Get Off My Lawn. Here's what he had to say that particular title:

We are working on an awesome tower defence game called Get Off My Lawn. You will play as an old man trying to keep the rascally trouble making neighbourhood kids off of your lawn throughout the year by utilizing a multitude of seasonal lawn ornaments.

McClure did not provide any further details, and there are no screenshots or other media of either game at this time.
