*UPDATE*: Turns out the devs don’t currently own the rights to the game, so we’ll see how this announcement pans out…

Remember Sadness? We wrote a few articles about it on the site about six years ago (here). It was a black-and-white survival horror game being developed for the Wii in 2008, with a strong emphasis on psychological horror. It was officially cancelled in 2010, but it appears to be making a comeback on Wii U, slated for release in 2016.

From Nintendo Life’s interview:

Nintendo Life: First up, can you give us an initial confirmation and a brief history of your role with Sadness in its past form?
Randy Freer: We’re here today to tell you that our two studios — HullBreach Studios and Cthulhi Games — are working together on bringing back the Sadness IP. Your readers are probably looking at their screens in disbelief. Quite understandable! I think we should let them blink a couple more times and let this sink in!

For information on the game, check out its Wikipedia entry.

About the author:

When Alex was young, he used to cry whenever his parents tried to hand him a game controller. Having complete control over the life of a red-clad Italian plumber was just too daunting to him. Nowadays, he only cries when the controller’s taken away.

Hailing from the frigid tundras of Canada, Alex plays video games not only to entertain himself, but also as a source of warmth to get him through the winter. He loves all genres of video games, the more difficult the better. Some of his current favourites include VVVVVV, Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends.

    This looks like it’ll turn out really well. This type of game is something the WiiU definitely needs. I look forward to seeing more about this in the future.

    I never though I will see SADNESS again in the news! This is interesting, only problem is (in Nintendo’s business perspective) that I don’t think I would want to associate the word “sadness” with “wii u”. Given the console’s current situation.
