WiiWare launch, announcing that it has "several" WiiWare titles in development for the region, the first of which is a four-player puzzle game called Critter Round-Up.
Known by the equally cute title Saku Saku Animal Panic in Japan, Critter Round-Up will have players building fences to keep animal species separated while avoiding "predators and other mischievous animals." The game is being created by fledgling developer Epicenter Studios, a company whose only other credit is the as yet unreleased Real Heroes: Firefighter for the Wii. And if corralling animals doesn't get you going (what's wrong with you?), Konami notes that future WiiWare projects include an arcade-style music game called Crescendo (working title) and a sandcastle building sim tentatively known as Fresco Beach. Excited yet?
