Next Level Games, the Canadian developer behind the Super Mario Strikers
series, is currently at work on an extremely
high-profile game: the Wii update to the classic Punch-Out!!
series. According to an OFLC listing spotted by Spencer from Siliconera, they've decided to work on something else while they've got the Wii devkits out: something called Jungle Speed.
Rather than a Donkey Kong-themed racing game (which has been tried
on the Wii to little success), Jungle Speed
is most likely a Wii version of a card game
of the same name, in which players must get rid of all their cards while racing to take possession of a totem.
We suspect that this title will end up on WiiWare: Jungle Speed
also has a rating on the American ESRB
, which lists its publisher as Playful Entertainment
. Playful states on their website that they have "multiple, unannounced titles" planned for WiiWare.
In bonus OFLC news
, Mercs, Enduro Racer
, and M.U.S.H.A.
have also been rated! Awesome games from Sega consoles incoming!
