In November, Yuji Naka's studio, Prope, revealed a new original IP, Ivy the Kiwi?
... for Windows Mobile. The latest Famitsu
reveals that the developer is porting the game to some game consoles! Namely, DS and Wii. Namco Bandai will release Ivy the Kiwi
in Japan on April 22 -- it's the first Prope game to be published by someone other than Sega or (in the case of the Windows Mobile version) Prope itself.
However, despite its origins as a mobile game, and its simple pick-up-and-play gameplay (which involves stretching and bouncing drawn lines to move a bird through a maze), Ivy the Kiwi
is destined for retail
on consoles, at a price of ¥3,990 ($43).
