None other than Takahashi Meijin, Master Higgins himself, has confirmed that very early production for a new Adventure Island is underway. Mr. Meijin also stated that the game will ‘probably’ be coming to WiiWare. For those worrying about a motion-controlled Higgins, you can stop bellyaching right now. Takahashi doesn’t want to force those aspects into a sequel, because he knows they could ruin the feeling of the franchise.
Seriously…with Mega Man 9, Castlevania Judgment, and a new Adventure Island announced all in one day, there has to be something to make everyone happy.
