Squenix unveils Kumanage for WiiWare

Throw bears to collect sweets. Or something. 

Square Enix has unveiled a pair of WiiWare games titled Kumanage.

As you can see on the official website, the visual style is cute and quirky. According to Andriasang, gameplay involves throwing things with the Wii remote to solve puzzles.

There are two versions of the game. Kumanage: The Blue Gem That Kiina Hates - Battle Version sees you following the adventures of a mysterious boy called Kiina. You must protect the aforementioned blue gem by throwing "paper bears" and "strange but cute" characters.

Kumanage: The Red Candy That Piina Likes - Puzzle Version also involves chucking paper bears around, but this time you're playing as a girl called Piina and you must collect red sweets.

Both games will be released on the Japanese WiiWare store on 8th June, each priced at 1000 Wii Points (£7 in the old money). The ESRB logo on the website suggests a US release is also planned, but there's no word on whether the games will make it to Europe.
