So, that Jazz Jackrabbit ‘announcement’ … wasn’t

Yesterday Cliffy B teased the Internet by suggesting that today was going to be both “Jazzy” and “Rabbity.” Fans of Epic’s earlier work of course jumped to the logical conclusion that a Jazz Jackrabbit announcement was imminent, be it a new game or a port of the classics. 

Looks like that may not be the case. 

This is your “rabbity” element to the day — a demo video for iPhone developers, telling them how they could make a twin-stick shooter starring Jazz. Epic confirmed to Destructoid that the “game” has been created simply for tutorial purposes, with no plans to release it as a real thing.

Well … shit.
