Tuesday, 22nd November 2011 11:59 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Codemasters has seemingly confirmed the return of ancient, egg-shaped mascot Dizzy, releasing a teaser video and launching Eggcitingnews.com

Codemasters PR head Rich Eddy has confirmed that a date for “Eggmergence Day” will be revealed tomorrow.

Dizzy was a hit for Codemasters in the 80s, with the platformer’s main series running from 1986 to 1992. Philip and Andrew Oliver, now of Blitz Studios, were the game’s original creators.

Watch the teaser below.

    Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit. Please don’t be shit.

    Ultimately though, i’ll settle for PSN/XBLA/Steam HD-ifications of everything from Fantasy Land Dizzy backwards :)

    I never finished a Dizzy game, as far as I recall. I remember them being really hard. So long ago.

    So either we’re going to end up with XBLA/PSN/Steam ‘HD remakes’ of Treasure Island & Fantasy World Dizzy, or some really really awful 3D adventure game reboot.

    Thoughts?

    This has got to be for the App store and Android Market, right? Dizzy with touch screen controls actually makes a fair bit of sense.

    I was very young when i played that, i guess it must have been on PC then.
