It seems like forever since we discovered Tumiki Fighters was coming to the Wii. Budcat Creation’s take on the sticky shooter has been upgraded with user created content. Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy lets players craft ships with their own bullet patterns, and unique stages. Custom content can then be shared through Nintendo Wi-Fi trading and BlastWorksDepot, which has some examples of ships generated with the internal interface.
One thing Majesco hasn’t mentioned is the inclusion of other shmups created by Kenta Cho. At last year's E3 a member from Budcat said rRootage, the original Tumiki Fighters, and possibly Torus Trooper would be in Blast Works too. Since Blast Works was supposed to be completed last year, Budcat Creations had plenty of time to include the entire Kenta Cho library in the Wii game. Hopefully, the $40 game will be a mini shmup bundle.
Blast Works: Build, Trade, Destroy is now scheduled to come out on June 5th in North America. Seriously, it’s really coming out this time.
