Tatsunoko revived Yatterman at the start of this year with a brand new anime series and there is a surge of games with Gan. He will be a playable character in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and a Yatterman Nintendo DS game is already out in stores. This fall Takara Tomy will release a second Nintendo DS game based on the Yatterman remake. Yatterman DS 2 Bikkuri Dokkiri Animal Daibouken (Yatterman DS 2 Surprising Shocking Animal Great Adventure) throws Gan on Animal Island for another side scrolling game. This time you get to bonk animals with a kendama. I wish we knew more about the gameplay, but instead we get photos of Akina Minami doing voice work. She's starting to make a presence in the gaming world too by pitching a baseball in a Pikachu outfit and made a cameo in Metal Gear Solid 4.
