GoNintendo.com picked up on the press release that has appeared on the Frontline Studios website, and reads the following:

"FRONTLINE Studios announced today that it has signed a co-production agreement with Nibris , the author of the highly anticipated Sadness game for the Wii platform.

FRONTLINE and Nibris have successfully worked together on several small projects over the past two years, and have now decided to pool the companies respective resources for the co-production of the revolutionary game – Sadness. Sadness is to be developed within a 16 month development schedule on upcoming Nintendo Wii platform.

From the effective date of 4 th August 2006 , the Sadness production plan and Publisher's relations will be undertaken by FRONTLINE Studios, Inc.

We're not really sure if this actually changes anything from what we knew before, but it seems Nibris have gotten the backing they were looking for.

Sadness is unlikely to launch until at least this time next year, so don't expect to get your hands on it any sooner.
