Eidos unveils Zendoku

Sudoku-inspired puzzler.

Eidos has announced plans to publish Zendoku - a Sudoku-based puzzle game for DS and PSP, currently in development at UK-based Zoonami.

Zendoku apparently "blends exciting puzzle battle action with addictive Sudoku gameplay", although those worried about some sort of superficial cross between Shadow Warrior and Carol Vorderman need only look at the PSP and DS screenshot galleries to realise it's not.

Instead it looks quite, quite peculiar, and the DS version clearly involves a bit of the old microphone and stylus action for mini-games, while both are based around the idea of battling a computer-controlled or wirelessly connected real-life opponent for control of the board. Eidos promises character-driven head-to-head challenges as well as against-the-clock levels and a range of other gameplay modes.

"Zendoku's focus is fun and innovation," says Zoonami's Martin Hollis. "We've turned a familiar paper and pencil game into a puzzling, battling, micro-gaming, fighting extravaganza." Should be interesting.
