LGC: Kororinpa Returns To Wii

First trailer of ball-rolling maze game

Konami has revealed that a sequel for Kororinpa, the ball-rolling maze game, will be coming to Wii soon. You can watch the first Kororinpa 2 trailer now on our video player.

This time there's a strange story which sees you trying to help Anthony The Ant create a path to the sunflower seed. What this means is that you have to roll various balls (and a box) through stages set across seven areas. There are multiple difficulty levels and more stages will be unlocked once you complete the main areas.

If that's not enough, you'll also be able to create your own stages by making use of the 40 widgets available. You'll also be able to design your own Mii ball.

Kororinpa was an excellent game but a bit short. With the extra difficulty levels, the ability to create your own courses and four-player options, it should have more longevity this time.

    Hurrah! I can finally roll that cute little piggy, kitty and poochy around those obscure courses again. :D

    I finished Kororinpa with all the green crystals and nearly all gold trophies too, hopefully the sequel has more too it.

    Stage Creator?
    Ball Creator?

    Oh my!

    I loved the first game, and this looks even more awesome... Here's hoping that we can share stages online!

    The thing that held me back from getting the original was the length, so I hope to get this version instead.

    I plan on getting this. I hope it uses Motion Plus for super-precise movements but it isn't necessary. I never got the first but all the new features makes it awesome. Perhaps even LittleBigPlanet with... Spheres :P

    The first game was top notch, and the multiplayer was rather fun too. So much better than Monkey Ball if you ask me.

    I will gladly buy the second game, hoping that the game still features it's really madcap soundtrack, great level design, general sense of fun and of course, all these awesome features they're knowing in.

    The UFO Ball was my favourite, I actually got spookily good using the little blighter.

    If this is even half as good as the original I'll be happy, and if the video is anything to go by then it is set to be even better! CAN'T WAIT!

    Excellent :D Kororinpa remains one of my favourite Wii games. I would never have bought it, but when I read some of the excellent reviews it got I thought it would be worth a try. It is the type of game that everyone can join in with and it is so addictive.

    The first game was great, I played about half of it at my friend's house but didn't buy it myself due to its length. This one should be a must-have.

    I hope there's an option you can use the balance board instead of controller :-)

    WOW! that looks amazing! i got the orginal but got bored of it ( most likely bcoz fifa 08 came out ) so i traded it in, but that looks good, and i love the idea of using the balance board, but that could get frustrating.

    wait, you roll a ball around a maze?

    so what's the game with the revolving stick that you have to guide around a maze? i think it popped up as an assist trophy in brawl.

    i always thought that was Kororinpa... :?
