Fading Shadows

Minon: Everyday Hero

The brains behind Fading Shadows detail an ambitious future.

Minon: Everyday Hero launches next Friday, 24th April, exclusively on Wii. It's a quirky action platform game where the hero, Minon, can change his shape to match the world around him. He can be as small as a flea or as big as a skyscraper - whatever he needs in order to save the town's inhabitants from trouble. Players can also team up with a friend. Bright and bold, it's the sort of title publisher Nordcurrent is becoming known for.

The brilliant Fading Shadows, PES 2008 and others.

If life is, indeed, like a box of chocolates, then we'd opine that penning one of Eurogamer's review roundups is rather like a box of chocolates bought for you by a relative who doesn't like you very much, with the Tesco discount label only half peeled off. You never know quite what you're going to get, but the chances are you won't like many flavours, and may feel somewhat ill by the end. Not to mention fatter.

Now all that remains to be seen is whether this latest batch of PSP treats can dish up some unexpectedly delicious centres, or whether the chocolate will be cheap and the nasty chewy ones that stick between your molars all too abundant. Or, indeed, whether this metaphor will ever end. Sorry.
