After keeping a relatively low profile, IdeaSpark Labs port of the Bioware-developed madcap third-person shooter will hit the US WiiWare store in a couple of weeks.

Back in February IdeaSpark co-founder Trent Oster stated that “MDK 2 for WiiWare has entered the final stages of the certification process.” Little had been heard in the last couple of months but now a release date has been put up on the game’s WiiWare page.

MDK2 was originally released back in 2000 for PC and Dreamcast, with a PS2 port appearing a year later. The game was renowned for its punishing difficulty – which Oster stated was undergoing “some tuning” for the WiiWare remake – as well as for its ambiguous title, MDK. Clues from the original MDK and its sequel pointed to a full title of either: Murder, Death, Kill or Mission: Deliver Kindness.

Take your pick.

A HD remake of MDK2 for PC is also in development by IdeaSpark Labs, though no launch date has been announced.
