It's been an indie day for Nintendo: first the announcement of the WiiWare developing platform, and now comes news that Majesco is officially bringing unique indie shoot-em-up TUMIKI Fighters to the Nintendo Wii in Europe, under the sadly generic name Blast Works: Build, Fuse & Destroy.
The original TUMIKI Fighters, created by Kenta Cho, is a Katamari-esque freeware shooter on the PC, where the polygons of exploded enemy ships can be "stuck" to the player's ship for increased firepower and greater points. According to Majesco's press release, Blast Works will retain the gameplay and "retro" aesthetic of the original, and will include a new ship editor, level editor, and a two-player cooperative mode. No word yet on a US release, but Majesco states that Europe will be building, fusing, and destroying sometime this fall.
