Namco Bandai has stumbled upon a surefire recipe for success: just take the strangeness of Katamari Damacy, the gameplay of Pac-Man and the mechanics of The Maw, toss them in a blender with a unicorn and several gallons of glitter, and you’re ready to serve up The Munchables, the cutest and craziest game ever cooked up for the Nintendo Wii.
According to the official announcement, this impossibly adorable title will have you playing as either Munchie or Chompers, who must defeat the evil Don Onion and his vicious band of space pirates by devouring them. The more you eat, the bigger you get. Through the course of the game, you’ll “eat and defeat” more than 150 sentient foodstuffs, including Brocco-Lee, Eggplanter and Rice Baller.
I can’t wait to pig out on this sickeningly sweet game come May 26!
