Hudson is one of those publishers that has a tendency of sneaking up on us with something really surprising. My favorite game from the Tokyo Game Show was a little title of theirs named Hard Working People (Help Wanted in the US), which appears to be a family-friendly minigame compilation--until you discover its hilariously twisted premise. A meteor is about to strike the Earth, and the only way to save it is by doing your job. Talk about instilling fear into the working man! Marble Saga: Korinpa is a similar case. It seems like a lighthearted puzzle game that allows you to move a platform with the Wii remote, which controls how a marble rolls along its surface and into various goals and collectable gems. But hidden deep within this facade is a twisted secret: Your marble is a human being. Okay, well, it's really a Mii, but still. Take a look at this gameplay footage and tell me the Mii suspended inside this marble, limbs spread out, isn't at least slightly unsettling. Maybe just a little?

Marble Saga: Korinpa is due for release on March 17. In other words, your Mii has just a few weeks left to make a run for it. You can view previous coverage right here .

no, not really. that's like saying Call of Duty is Goldeneye. That's cool if you like this game, but it just looks like they're completely recycling someone else's ideas. Hudson does have a history of doing that. Point and case: adventure island.

You know....Super Monkey Ball is just marble madness with monkeys. But to know that means you had to have been playing video games for longer then 5 years I suppose. Looks like Hudson has another fun game on the way anyhow.

It looks like a twist on Monkey Ball. Cool nonetheless.
