Adventure Island: The Beginning - First Video

It was only a few days ago that we revealed our exclusive interview with Takahashi Meijin about Hudson’s upcoming WiiWare game Adventure Island: The Beginning. He told us we could expect to get our hands on the game in May, but it looks like Japan will get it sooner as the official website has now launched, and it lists their release date as "April".

In the game you can collect special gold melons which are used as currency in the shop to power up Master Higgins. This reinvented platformer also gives Master Higgins the ability to cliff hang and even double-jump like Sir Arthur! In addition to the main game there are also some fun looking mini-games to keep you entertained. All this for just 1000 Wii points.

Check out the Japanese trailer for yourself and let us know what you think of Master Higgins's new look:
