We had just about forgotten about the Gamefly-supplied rumor of a Wii port
of Tumiki Fighters,
and now we have confirmation from Majesco
! They'll be releasing an upgraded port of Kenta Cho's freeware shooter, with the new title Blast Works,
in the first quarter of next year-- in Europe. No US date has been announced.
Not only will the game feature the same awesome mechanic the original had (grabbing parts from exploded enemies to upgrade your ship) but it'll include weapon, propulsion, armor, ship, enemy, and level editors
. Grab the freeware version and give it a try, then join us in hoping for a US release-- it beats online petitions, at least.
