A staff member on Hudson Entertainment's official forums has posted a bit of a teaser regarding the company's next release for the Wii's Virtual Console.

"This upcoming Monday Dec 11th, there will be a new TurboGrafx game coming to your Virtual Console on the Nintendo Wii! It's a new one, which has not been announced yet."

The staff member then gives a hint about the title's identity, saying, "All brain, no skull. All eyes, no nose." Gamers who remember the TurboGrafx-16 pinball game Alien Crush may remember the game's alien-queen centerpiece as being a noseless, eyeball-laden monstrosity. They might also recall a giant brain used as a bumper of sorts on the game's upper playfield.

Further supporting the idea that Alien Crush is the game being referenced is the fact that Hudson has already set up a page confirming that its headed for the Virtual Console on its official site. The company has also created a page for Dungeon Explorer, a previously announced but still unreleased Virtual Console title.
