A trail you may want to follow

A Kappa’s Trail is a bizarre game: you play as a little turtle/fish/sea creature and your objective is to escape the depths of the ocean to reach the land of the humans, but it’s a clever idea, and plays great in many areas where other DSiWare games...

To say this is by Nintendo and Brownie Brown, I'm gutted this isn't available in the UK and Europe. I want it badly.
