Bully coming to steal your lunch money on the Xbox 360 and Wii

That’s right boys and girls, you’re going to be able to take control of Jimmy Hopkins on your shiny next-gen systems this winter. It will essentially be the same exact game with some new content and a new subtitle (as if it didn’t have a long enough name already), Scholarship Edition. So, the full name of the game is now Bully: Bullworth Academy; Canis Canem Edit Scholarship Edition.

Nothing else was really announced aside from this small detail. Press release after the jump.

It’s great news for anyone who missed the PS2 classic, but what I really want to know is, what’s up with Manhunt 2?

New York, NY – July 19, 2007 – Rockstar Games is proud to announce that Bully: Scholarship Edition is coming to the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo this Winter.

Both the Wii and Xbox 360 versions will retain the wit and deep gameplay of the previously released PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system title and will boast additional new content. Bully: Scholarship Edition takes place in the fictional New England boarding school of Bullworth Academy, and tells the story of 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he experiences the highs and lows of adjusting to a new school. Capturing the hilarity and awkwardness of adolescence perfectly, Bully: Scholarship Edition pulls the player into its cinematic and engrossing world. Universally acclaimed upon first release, Bully: Scholarship Edition is a genre-crossing action game with a warmth and pathos that is unrivaled.

Bully received a perfect “10/10” from Electronic Gaming Monthly and 1up.com and was heralded as “a great, well-crafted action game that has one of the best senses of humor around” by IGN.com. USA Today called it “a fantastic debut title by Rockstar Vancouver.” The San Francisco Chronicle wrote “Bully has no shortage of creative energy, offering an immersive boarding school experience that is imaginative, funny and filled with surprises.”
