Following the recent release of Super Paper Mario (in the US that is), the spotlight has turned to the next (and final?) of Nintendo's 'once-GameCube-turned-Wii games', DK Bongo Blast. Since E3 last year, little information about the game has been revealed. In the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu however, new details have emerged.
Apparently, the game will utilise the Nunchuk and Wii controllers by having players shake both to accelerate, shake one to steer into a corresponding direction, while raising the Wii remote and Nunchuk together will allow you to jump. Players will also be able throw barrels among other obstacles via unsaid controls.
Players can also look forward to racing on 16 courses set across 7 different worlds, as well as splitscreen multiplayer support for up to four players.
DK Bongo Blast is currently set for release in Japan on June 28. We'll report back once more information becomes available.
