Skye Boyes, president of XGen Studios, had this to say about the announcement:

We're thrilled to announce that the classic game play enjoyed by millions is coming to your living room in the form of a new title with compelling additions. We're taking advantage of the creative freedom afforded by WiiWare to bring fans a captivating co-op game, with great competitive elements and irresistibly charming art direction.

The game in question is coming in ‘early 2008’, which further fuels speculation that we may see the unveiling of the WiiWare service as soon as March.
