On The Way: Elebits DS

There's something of a trend going on right now. It involves developers taking my favourite games of the past few years and gutting them with a rusty knife.

I've previously mentioned the abomination that is Drawn to Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition. In a similar vein, Konami have announced that the next iteration of Elebits (or Eledees to us Aussies) will be a top-down action RPG for the DS.

Elebits: The Adventures of Kai & Zero appears to pick up where the original Wii version left off, judging from the title. Where the first game was a wonderful sandbox in which you used light-gun style gameplay to lift and throw furniture in the eternal search for "Elebits", the DS version looks a little like Secret of Mana meets Boktai. Which were both great games, but deeply lacking in the "tossing two storey houses as though they were beachballs" department.

Boo. Boo, I say. Poor show, Konami. Make a real Elebits sequel and forget about this DS nonsense.
