Expect costumes ahoy in this one

We have just received word from our good friends at Virtual Playground that the follow up to their first DSiWare game, Oscar in Toyland, will be out on the DSiWare service in North America on the 8th of February for 800, with Europe and Australasia getting the game later on in the month.

The game will employ a similar gameplay style to the original, except for this game we've been promised some improved graphics and graphical techniques (such as parallax scrolling backdrops). Oscar himself will be wearing different costumes to compliment each movie-themed level.

Oscar in Movieland was originally released on the Commodore Amiga worldwide, and at the time was known as Commodore's answer to Sonic and Mario. It was later released on other PC and console formats.
