Order Up!! (yes, now with two exclamation points) coming soon to 3DS, PS3 and 'TBA'

The folks at Supervillain Studios have been teasing an Order Up! sequel for some time.

It all started in late 2009, when one of the developer's staffers revealed that "a good amount of work" had been competed on the title. The teasing continued last June when a comic was published on the company's website that suggested the follow-up would be released for the PS3.

Strangely, that's the last time anyone at the Irvine, Calif.-based company talked publicly about the game--until a few days ago. That's when four screenshots--which seemingly showcased a new Order Up! restaurant (below) and waiter--were added to the developer's website. Shortly afterwards, a Supervillain Studios staffer revealed that the screenshots in question were from Order Up!!, an updated--with new content and features--version of the Wii release that will appear on the 3DS, the PS3 and "a third (TBA) platform as well."

Will the "TBA platform" wind up being Nintendo's soon-to-be-unveiled successor to the Wii (i.e., Project Café)? We'll find out shortly, I guess.

In the meantime, add one of the above-mentioned iterations of Order Up!! to your "to buy" list. If it's anything like its Wii-based predecessor, it'll be well worth whatever you have to spend to acquire it.

After your rave review, I'll definitely be picking this up when it comes out! But since I have both a PS3 and a 3DS, it's going to be a tough decision regarding which platform to purchase it for...

I'd wait until some impressions of both versions are shared on line before picking up either iteration, apricotsushi. The PS3 version is sure to control similarly to the Wii version, which is great, but I'm not entirely sure how the controls of the 3DS version will work. I could see the game benefiting from 3D visuals, though. So, it's kind of a toss-up in my head at the moment. Hopefully we'll see and hear more about both versions -- and the 'TBA' version -- at the upcoming E3 event.

Maybe this will be the next 3DS game I buy! That is, if it comes out soonish.

Hopefully we'll learn more about all three versions during or after E3, Justin. Have you played the Wii version, BTW? If not, this will be a new experience for you :)
