Hudson has announced its interspecies shooter Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem is leaving Japan and heading to WiiWare for Europe and North America.
From the press release:
“In Shootanto: Evolutionary Mayhem, players start as primates and battle lizardmen across the epochs, from primeval to medieval times and beyond. Players who survive each battle will evolve from a lowly monkey to an apeman, then caveman, a human knight, and finally a soldier. The combat continues to change as the lizardmen also evolve throughout the game. Co-op mode allows players to survive the onslaught together.”
Expect it sometime this month.

During the course of the week, loads of indie games, less mainstream titles and those point-and-click adventures you are always hearing about, sometimes get lost in the shuffle -what with news on Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 happening every three minutes or so.
That’s why, much like the MMO news round-up, we’ve decided to remedy this by giving you a heads up on news, demos, patches, announcements, trailers, screens and other doodads pertaining to these games that you missed out on during the week.
Yes, it’s all here for you in one post! See how much we love you guys? Another wall of text for the win!
While not comprehensive, since there are loads of this sort out there, we will do our best to be as thorough as possible.
Read on past the break for the first of, hopefully, many “Indie and other games of interest” post.

Hudson has put out a teaser for Bomberman Live: Battlefest, which is a Bomberman party game, and the music reminds you a bit of a funky Isaac Hayes groove for a Shaft-centric 70′s TV show.
Also, the video is explosive, and why would you expect anything else from a Bomberman game.
When released this winter, it will land on PSN, WiiWare and XBLA.
Video is below the break.

According to this week’s Famitsu release list (via AndriaSang), Bomberman’s bringing his adorable brand of arson to the DSi’s download service in October.
Or at least, that’s the date for Japan, anyway. Hudson hasn’t actually announced the game yet, though, so the what’s, when’s, and why’s of the West are still up in the air.
We’ve contacted Hudson for more info. Here’s hoping the publisher gets back to us soon, maybe with some news on the long-awaited Bomberman: Act Zero sequel.

Konami has officially announced Hudson Soft’s Calling for Wii which is slated to land in early 2010.
The player begins the game trapped in a strange room, with the Wii Remote doubling as the on-screen mobile phone. Using a torch to see dark areas, players will receive calls to their handset, which are answered by raising the Wii Remote to their ear.
Exploration and puzzle-solving is called into play, with claustrophobic locations hiding secrets and danger.
More information is through the press release below, and GoNintendo has some screens of it posted.

Two of the leaked videos that Hudson pulled a while back are posted over on Cubed3.
No word on a release yet.
