Endemol and Zoo Games have further strengthened their partnership, revealing they will be producing a version of Deal Or No Deal for Nintendo's Wii system.

The title is due for release in the US in November and follows on from the successful launches of 1vs 100 on Nintendo DS in June and Deal Or No Deal on Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance last year.

While the game will follow the format of the TV show, new game modes and mini-games - such as Million Dollar Mission and Double or Nothing - will be added for interactive play at home.

Selecting cases, choosing 'Deal' or 'No Deal' and other on screen options will take advantage of the point and click controls of the Wii Remote. Players will also be able to use their custome-made Mii characters as in-game contestants. The title will also feature host Howie Mandel.

"Endemol, proud of our history of being family friendly, is very excited to have the Wii version of Deal Or No Deal releasing," said Tina Hoover, director of production for Endemol USA. "It is the perfect product extension for the franchise, is timed perfectly for the holiday season and is a must have for any Wii owners who love the show."
