I still don't understand why there's a question mark in this game's title

Is it possible the protagonist in Yuji Naka's upcoming DS/Wii platformer, Ivy the Kiwi?, isn't, in fact, a member of the genus Apteryx and family Apterygidae?

Hopefully the Prope founder will answer that burning question before the titles are released on April 22. In the meantime, enjoy this "fresh out of the oven" trailer for the DS version of the game:

That game looks INTENSE!

I agree. I can see playing (and enjoying) the DS version, but I'm not so sure about the Wii version. It seems like it would be a lot more difficult to control.

Very much so. It's a game made for the DS that seems like they shoehorned it onto the Wii, like they're doing with EVERYTHING now...I have very strong negative opinions about this...I won't go into it.

I know what you're saying -- not enough developers use the Wii's strengths like they do on the DS. Honestly, more Wii devs need to use the pointer function, IMO. Sigh.
