    Details about the game at this link:

    Obviously that probably won't be what Wii U cases look like (its clearly photoshopped)...and well this game may be high quality...but judging on the companies past games I really would doubt it. It's also coming to the 3DS. Not quite sure WHY they are releasing it for Wii U, maybe they hope when parents pick up a Wii U for their kid they'll grab this innocent looking title rather than stick it in the already crowded Wii market.

    Damn, it looks pretty good. Look at the colouring and shading on that fish. I didn't know the Wii U could do that. I'll definitely get it.

    Prepare the WiiU's rear end for all the shovelware that's going to be shoved up it. There's gonna be lots.

    I'm still waiting for Ninjabread Man 2: Blades of Fury, they promised us that. :(

    I wonder what happened to Data Design Interactive, I remember sending a email to managing director Stuart Green...and he actually replied and seemed very dedicated to the crap he released.


    Depends if it sells well :teach:

    Shovelware always goes to the console with massive mainstream market, look at the PC, PSX, PS2 & iOS. Shit most of the Wii ones were on the PS2.

    I took a look at the tablet version.... probably better than the last few Diddy Kong games. Granted I would have pegged it as WiiUware but hey if you have a somewhat captive audience play that advantage has hard as you can.

    Also better than

    As for ninjabreadman 2 with competition like the now deceased Greg Woggerman can you really blame them for not pursuing things as hard as they could?

    Gregg was DSI Games :teach:

    Or did he move onto DDI before he died? I can't keep track of the bullshit I spout.

    I don't see what all of the sarcasm's about, this game is a work of art. The characters are varied and detailed, the title oozes originality, and it spans multiple consoles. I'm game.
