Eidos have picked up Spikeâ€™s Wii survival romp Necro-Nesia for a western release. They wonâ€™t be calling it that over here though. Nope, we get treated to the teeth-grindingly awful Escape from Bug Island. Necro-Nesia might not have meant anything, but at least it didnâ€™t make the game sound like some cheesy 1960s B-movie.
When it was first unveiled we passed comment that it looked like a crusty old PlayStation 2 game with Wii controls added on as an afterthought. Those who have played the import version have said the same thing. You basically travel around a dark forest attacking giant insects by waving the remote around as you go from point A to point B. Or at least trying to – one reviewer said that they died from game-ruining glitches more than anything else.
In similar news, Konami have decided to rename Elebits to Eledees for its European release. Weâ€™re not sure why, although a name change was expected – Nintendo of Europe had been referring to Elebits as ‘Untitled Konami Action Game’ for a while.
