Two do-wanty games are probably headed our way from Konami. Both were let out of the bag by the folks at the ESRB, who had to drop a rating on them first. We're always poking around to see what's coming up, but this time the folks at Kotaku beat us to it.

I'm betting it will be 1,000 Wii points, and that the only co-op you will be doing will be local. I hate when people say "dust off your Wii," but seriously: dust off your Wii.
