Konami’s announced Six Days in Fallujah, a third-person tactical shooter based on 2004’s battle for the Iraqi city that left 38 US soldiers and 1,200 opposition forces dead, according to this LA Times report.

American developer Atomic Games is developing the title, which will release in 2010.

Said Atomic boss Peter Tamte: “For us, the challenge was, ‘How do you present the horrors of war in a game that is also entertaining, but also gives people insight into a historical situation in a way that only a video game can provide?’

“Our goal is to give people that insight, of what it’s like to be a Marine during that event, what it’s like to be a civilian in the city and what it’s like to be an insurgent.”

There’s tons more through there. Thanks, GamePolitics.
