While many of you might not remember this, The Kore Gang was a title originally announced for release on the original Xbox some six years ago. The title was never released, eventually fading into obscurity as Microsoft moved into what was then known as the "next-gen."
Well it's back, simply known as Kore, and has now found a home on the Wii. The game -- which has a very Psychonauts feel and look -- puts players in a cybernetic K.O.R.E. suit that enhances the wearer's abilities. With a focus on action and puzzles, Kore will allow you to control three characters: Pixie, Madboy, and the dog Rex, each of which will have different powers when donning the suit.
The developers claim that that Kore has innovative gameplay "designed for the Wii," but that's questionable considering the game was originally conceived for another console. That's not to say they haven't made considerable changes to adapt to Nintendo's console, evinced by the inclusion of "3 unlockable mini-games."
I joke, of course; I'm all for original IPs on any console, and Kore -- at the very least -- has an interesting aesthetic. The game will be on display at Leipzig Games Convention this year, so we should be hearing some more soon.
