Hudson announces Help Wanted for the Nintendo Wii


I'll be honest with you -- the sight of another Wii minigames collection averagely sends me running in the other direction as fast as my feet can carry me. Sprinkle a dash of odd into it, however, and I suddenly find myself drawn to even the simplest titles. That is definitely the case with the recently announced Help Wanted from Hudson, which is a job simulation game which challenges you to try out fifty different types of jobs.

This would probably suck if the options included "trash boy at McDonald's", but with options like bodybuilder, yakitori chef and haunted house monster, this game looks like its going to be hilarious. Multiplayer is an option too, which allows players to take on versus mode with fifteen of the jobs available.

It'll be weird, alright, but probably missing from the lineup: the eager, young boy who wields the mop at porn shoots. Some jobs are just too terrible to think about.


Coming Summer 2009--The First Job Simulation Compilation For Nintendo
Wii Centered Around Fifty Odd and Quirky Jobs!

REDWOOD CITY, CA - November 11th, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the
North American publishing arm for HUDSON SOFT, announced today they
will bring Help Wanted, a fun, slap-stick new life simulation game for
Wii in Summer 2009.  In Help Wanted, players are sent on a mission to
save the world from impending extinction by completing fifty different
jobs.  Help Wanted is developed by Hudson Soft and published by Hudson
Entertainment for North and South America.

Help Wanted allows players to choose from completing over fifty odd
jobs, including: Haunted House Monster, Clown, Make-up Artist, Pinch
Hitter, Pizza Chef, Stunt Car Driver, Sumo Referee, Action Hero and
Sushi Master to name just a few. The game includes multiple difficulty
levels that change up the game play elements and a multiplayer feature
that allows for head-to-head play on up to fifteen different jobs.

After completing each job, players can then shop for fun and unique
items using the money they've earned from their daily grind. In
addition, gamers can also buy special defensive goods that will help
to save the planet or delay it's extinction from a meteor. After
making purchases, players can also add keepsakes to their displayable
collections in the collector's room.

"Help Wanted is out-of-this-world fun for the entire family" said
Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson
Entertainment. "If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to be a
Sushi Master, a Boat Captain, a Body Builder and save the world all in
one day - this is the game for you!"

Help Wanted will be available exclusively for Wii in summer of 2009.
