Cake Ninja 2 Confirmed for DSiWare
Posted by Damien McFerran
More deserts in line for the chop
DSiWare has had its share of titles that have incurred the wrath of low review scores here on Nintendo Life, with Cake Ninja being one to enjoy the dubious honour. Essentially a DSiWare version of smartphone smash-hit Fruit Ninja, its pricing and painful lack of features and game modes meant that it took a bit of a beating in our Cake Ninja review.
Not to be deterred, Cypronia is returning with a sequel, this time promising a variety of modes and online leaderboards to spruce up the package. It'll apparently include four single player modes, and as many multiplayer modes, while unlockable achievements and online rankings will maybe add a bit more incentive for those that simply have to play games in this style. Europeans will also have a chance to enter a contest in each of the single player modes, with a combined 100,000 DSi Nintendo Points available to be shared amongst the winners.
This one's already approved for North America and in the process of approval for Europe, so it's likely to arrive soon. Will it improve on the original, or will the cakes be stale? Time will tell.
