Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade - WiiWare OFLC rated

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

A strange new OFLC rating popped up today - Maboshi: The Three Shape Arcade was no title we had ever heard of before! However, doing some searching, we came to the conclusion that this had to be the WiiWare title Katachi no Game: Maru Bou Shikaku (Game of Shapes: Ball, Stick, Square), which was announced for Japan a few months ago but has not been released so far.

We're still not quite sure what the game is about - It seems like some sort of puzzle/action game, and judging from the Japanese title, it heavily involves the shapes of balls, sticks and squares. At least now we know it's coming to Europe and Australia too!

@gavin Yeah all we seem to get is shmups, fighters and puzzlers. I want RPGs and action/adventure games, people!! Those are the best IMHO.

Shooters and Puzzlers are best suited to the limited size and budget of WiiWare... This looks interesting, but I wonder what it's based on...

Forget Picross and Puzzle League, give us Tetris already. That is the one I'm waiting for WiiWare related anyway.

but Picross? We could use that.
Probably not going to happen. Nintendo would rather you buy the DS version.

Then again I said the same about Puzzle League and Pokemon Puzzle League pops up...but theres a difference about taking a ROM from the archive and making a whole new game from scratch (though for Pokemon Puzzle League it was a bit more work due to the FMV work-around).

This either means that it'll get fully translated or that Europe will get japanese Wiiware games at Hanabi too!
