MEAT! Bonk: Brink of Extinction to hit WiiWare/XBLA/PSN

Hudson is really mining the hell out of its TurboGrafx-16 library these days, and I for one couldn't be happier about it. Before the SNES was released, the TG-16 was my 16-bit system of choice, despite the fact that it was really only as powerful as two NESs duct-taped together. That's why I'm ready to smash-my-head-into-the-faces-of-strangers-then-eat-the-meat-that-pops-out-of-them with delight over the announcement of Bonk: Brink of Extinction. This is the first all new Bonk game to be released in the US since Super Bonk came out in 1994, and for that reason alone, I want to eat dino-chops.

Just like with the new Okami game on the DS, I'm also little nervous that this new Bonk game wont live up to its heritage. Bonk himself is looking a little weird here, and not half as cool as he did in the Gamecube/PS2 remake of the original game. Still, a weird looking new Bonk is still better than no new Bonk at all, and that new white mohawk he's sporting in the gallery looks pretty threatening. 

I like threatening!

Bonk. Is. Back! Hudson's loveable caveman makes his long-awaited return and has brought his enormously giant head with him! Get ready for an all new adventure exclusively on Xbox LIVE®Arcade, Playstation®Network, and WiiWare™ in Spring 2010!

A doomsday comet, surrounded by smaller chunks of debris, is on a collision course with Earth. A strange magnetic field around the comet seems to be driving most of the planet’s weak-willed creatures crazy, and smaller bits of debris are smashing into the jungle near Bonk's home. Bonk must undertake a perilous journey that will take him to the very center of the planet to save the world.
The Return Of The Most Widely Requested Classic Platformer

• Story Mode with Co-Op play. Play alone or have a friend join you at any time!
• An entire new adventure with Bonk as he swims, bites, climbs, jumps, runs, and head-butts his way through jungles, deserts and volcanic caverns
• Search for help along the way: power ups, check points, and extra health are the staple for every adventuring caveman.
• Transformations are back and weirder than ever! Now Bonk can transform himself into eight different forms by eating meat or encountering Primordial Jelly. No enemy is safe from the boy with the super noggin!

New Features
• Online play for the first time in the series!
