Kororinpa 2 will have you playing with balls again in 2009

When I saw video of the first Kororinpa game, I instantly knew it was going to be a must-have for my Wii. It's still one of my favorite games for the console, in part because it actually feels like a game that's designed to make use of the controller's functionality. Now, Konami (who is publishing the game in Europe) has given us a ton of material on the just-announced Kororinpa 2 and, while it looks more than a little bit like its predecessor, I'm giddy as a schoolgirl.

Not everything will be exactly the same in this new iteration. Ten levels of the game will feature support for the Wii Balance Board while the other hundred continue to use the familiar Wii Remote gameplay style as the original. A level editor is also being included in the new game and you'll be able to share levels via WiiConnect 24.

No word yet from Hudson USA as to when I'll be able to get my grubby little hands on this, but Konami announced at Leipzig that it'll hit Europe sometime in Q1 of 2009. I would imagine the rest of us will be seeing Kororinpa 2 around the same time.

Check out the gallery for a massive collection of screenshots and concept art.
