Baddest of the Bands Launches 27th Oct On WiiWare

Posted by Darren Calvert

Our friends at Telltale Games have just confirmed what we probably already all suspected anyway – Yes that’s right Strong Bad Episode 3 will hit North America this coming Monday! Yay!

We expect that the third Strong Bad outing is likely to be more of the same, but if you were a fan of episodes 1 & 2 then it is likely that this will rock your boat too.

Check out the cool flyer below for more details:

Only 2 hours till we know but I was going to say does this mean we will get it on the 7th of November or the 24th October (I hate these alternating weeks made even worse by NOE picking not the best of games to come out...)

We've always got the SB games after the US WiiWare / PC releases, but if we get this one on November 7th, does that mean we'll get 4 and 5 in December and January? I want this one now!

Geez, how many of these are they gonna make? Where's Animales de los Muertos? or Lost WInds Vol. 2?

@MrPoo: Those're probably going to be a while away. Thinking on a smaller timescale, I'm looking forward to Alien Crush (tonight, maybe?), Art Style Cubello and Liight, although I wouldn't mind a bit of Mart Racer and Pop Up Pirate!

I agree with you about Animales, but hey - (almost) all games with a long production time are pretty good in the end, right (Mario Galaxy, SSBBrawl, DISASTER)? Hopefully it's gonna be worth the wait.

I also wouldn't mind getting (read: I'D LOVE TO GET) Fun Fun Minigolf, though as I only have 1200 points at present (guess where that's going), I'm quickly running low on cash due to the complete Guitar Hero World Tour kit

As I predicted! I'm still sticking by my prediction of SBE3 and the 3rd Art Style game, as Fleeman alluded to.

Unsure if I'll get it though.

Isn't that a bit extreme, JoshZTP? I'm against violence myself but Episode 2 didn't have any notable acts of violence that would raise an eyebrow. As for vulgar language, not at all. There's no swearing at all, again, in Episode 2. I hope it stays that way. Now, I should add that I was one who was skeptical about getting SB in the first place. But I ended up trying Episode 2 and I'm glad I did. It's not "bad" by any standards and there's nothing, thus far, that I would label as objectionable. But I don't watch the online cartoon so your opinions may be based on that. If so, Episode 2 isn't like how you're describing it at all (if you're labelling it as adult-content). You should try the game before you make such claims against it. And trust me, I used to think SOMEWHAT similar to what you're thinking about it now. Things may change in Episode 3 so we'll see.. I wish WWW would review the SB Games and notice objectionable factors including language, violence, etc.

@LAA: I can confirm for you that you're not getting SB3. You're getting Tetris Party, The Incredible Maze and lookie here, Home Sweet Home, too! Wonder how that'll turn out!

This held true...it looks like Number 4 wil be 5th December for Europe unless it comes out in America on the 17th and Jan 3rd 2009 unless Ep 5 is out on the 17th December.

Assuming the "we get it after America" rule still applied...

@ JoshZTP: Strong Bad doesn't have any vulgar language AT ALL. The only mildly offensive word you hear sometimes is "crap" and calling that vulgar is really stretching it.

I used to think that too, until I actually went to watch the original series and it's really funny, and not vulgar at all. It manages to do a fantastic job of poking fun at the younger, cynical internet generation without being as crude as it looks. It's much more intelligent humor than it looks like on the surface. You should really watch the series online before bashing it so hard, it's way cleaner than, say South Park, if thats maybe what you were assuming it is like; apples and oranges.

Awesome, I loved the flash animations, but I still haven't had the time or Wii points (not to mention Wii blocks) to buy them... but I'll have to do that soon.

Are you sure your not confusing Strong Bad with something on Adult Swim? I think Strong bad has quircky but harmless humor. And I am the most conservative person in the world. But still you are entitled to your opinion if you don't enjoy it :)

Here is what the ESRB says about it

@Tony: That link just goes to the pre-search page on www.ESRB.org. The site works weird, and the URL doesn't change after you search.

But episode 1 is rated T for "Crude Humor, Mild Cartoon Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes." episode 2 is rated E10 for "Crude Humor, Mild Cartoon Violence, Use of Alcohol."
Now I'm trying to remember the differences between the two that would account for the different ratings. It seems a little weird to me that the second episode got an E10 after the first got a T. The third isn't up on the site yet...

Mild suggestive themes I think pushed the first one into T. E10+ basically is the halfway house between T and E...

@Starwolf_UK: I know that, but I can't remember what "mild suggestive themes" episode one had that episode two did not. Far as I can remember, the games were pretty much the same in content.
