MDK2 is a game about a six-legged dog and a mad professor – that should guarantee your attention even if you haven't played the game in question. Developed by BioWare and released on Dreamcast, PC and PlayStation 2, the game was highly acclaimed but mostly forgotten, but publisher Interplay is set to revive the title with a WiiWare release.
Although there is no news on any planned improvements or control tweaks, the fact the well-regarded game is on the way to Wii is cause for celebration indeed. Here's the official announcement to prove it's not all a wonderful dream starring a six-legged dog.
