Europe to get Electroplankton

But will it be available in shops?

Nintendo has confirmed to Eurogamer that DS music maker Electroplankton will be getting a European release - but whether we'll actually see the game on shop shelves is another matter.

The game will go on sale in the US on January 9 via the Nintendo website and online retailers. Only one actual bricks and mortar shop in the country will stock it - the Nintendo World Store in New York.

So can we expect the same deal here? Who knows - according to a Nintendo spokesperson, "We haven't confirmed our plans in the UK yet for Electroplankton."

No release date has been announced so far and the spokesperson declined to comment, but we're informed by a secret source that Electroplankton will arrive here in April.

Electroplankton, for those who don't know, is the brainchild of composer and artist Toshio Iwai - a sort of Japanese Jeff Minter, he's been mucking about with music and computer-generated imagery for years now. He also developed SimTunes, widely available for download at an Internet near you.
