The creators of Art of Balance reveal their next WiiWare project.

Shin'en, the company behind Fun! Fun! Fun! Mini Golf and Art of Balance, announced their latest WiiWare game, Jett Rocker.

The title is a 3D action/platformer that will have players visiting the planet Yoroppa as it is attacked by the evil Power Plant Posse. Jett will use a Jet Boat, parachute from giant cliffs, use a snowboard, and fly with his Jet Pack.

Shin'en is also working on two other WiiWare titles, but they haven't been announced yet.

There is currently no set release date for Jett Rocker.

Since for me a big part of 3d platformers is the environment, I doubt anything that would fit in a wiiware sized download would catch my eye. I suppose all we can do is wait and see.

I think they look pretty damn good for a WiiWare game...

It looks pretty but Shin'En games always do. I wonder if it's going to be much fun though.

Super Mario 64 was only 8 MB, and it still is pretty good looking. A competent developer can make a good looking 3D platformer that is within the 40 MB limit.
