Namco Bandai's Wii Ware word game, Kotoba no Puzzle Mojipittan Wii
, is exactly the kind of thing that would be up our alley. It's a tile-based word game, like Scrabble, with two important twists. First, it has multiple boards with different layouts, including the one in the screenshot in which every other board has a preplaced "n" on it.
Second, it's, you know, Japanese. That's the real challenge of the thing. Our hiragana comprehension is fine, but we don't exactly have a large enough vocabulary to be able to build words from randomly-selected characters. Honestly, at a reduced Wii Ware price, we'd be tempted to jump on this like we wanted to
for the PS2, PSP, and DS
versions. Of course, there's no chance at all that Namco Bandai will allow that to happen.
If you think Mojipittan
