Further proof Sadness doesn't actually exist: Not even announced for Wii

People, strap yourselves in and prepare for a rollercoaster of breaking news insanity. Sadness, a game that is about as real as talking puffins and imps with fairydust up their arseholes, has NOT been announced for release on the Nintendo Wii. What a shock, eh? We were all so certain that this pure fantasy was actually going to appear, but apparently Nintendo hasn't even sanctioned it:

At this time, Sadness has not been announced for release on the Wii console. Since this title would most likely come from one of our third-party licensees, I’d suggest contacting them for more information. 

In all seriousness, this is pretty damning evidence that developer Nibris has actually developed bugger-all and the recent tease of a Sadness-based holiday card floating about is just that -- a tease and nothing more. From the sound of the statement it made, Nintendo hasn't even heard of Sadness. We'll see Duke Nukem Forever before Sadness even gives us a gameplay video. At least we know what the bloody hell Duke Nukem is about.

If Sadness is ever released for the Wii, I will record myself masturbating to pictures of Hulk Hogan and put the video online for everybody to see. That's a personal guarantee, one more trustworthy than Nibris could ever make.
