Ubisoft has announced the June 2008 release of Emergency Heroes, a new free-roaming driving game created by Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Barcelona.

Players take control of Zach Harper, a former cadet with natural driving ability, and must save the city of San Alto before it is too late. Designed for boys aged 6-10, there are 45 hi-tech vehicles to pilot and command, with players able to become a policeman, fireman and rescue driver.

Despite featuring a large world to explore Ubisoft says arrows on the road will ensure the final destination remains clear. Controls will also be kept simple with the Wii Remote used to steer as if using a steering wheel.

The game will also enable friends to play together, either challenging each other or combining forces to form the ultimate rescue team.
