Nintendo Japan has revealed what has to be the strangest game of the year (okay, so we?re only seven days in, but still) in Dance Dance Revolution for the GameCube videogames console.
The full title of the game is Dance Dance Revolution with MARIO, as it features a dancing version of the little plumber in what has to be seen as perhaps the most impressive franchise-milking performed by Nintendo in, well, weeks.
The game promises solo routines, head-to-head dancing and a selection of all-new mini-games. An as-yet undisclosed cast list should see favourites from the Mario universe playable, with most gamers naturally yearning for unlockable Luigi, the sexiest of the Mario Brothers by a long way.
The game will come bundled with a GameCube compatible mat and ships into Japan in summer of this year, and is expected in the US and Europe not long after.
