Bonk Headbutts his Way Back onto Consoles in Bonk: Brink of Extinction

New Version of the TurboGrafx-16 Classic Returns on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network and WiiWare

After almost 15 years of hibernation on consoles, Bonk returns in a new digital download title, Bonk: Brink of Extinction. Hudson Entertainment resurrects one of their most iconic characters on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and WiiWare in early 2010. The updated side scrolling adventure features next generation graphics meets retro gameplay style. With classic 2D platforming in a 3D world, Bonk: Brink of Extinction combines new enemies, collectables, downloadable content and online play for the first time in the series.

“As one of the most recognizable characters in gaming history, the return of Bonk has been widely requested by fans for years,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. “Bonk: Brink of Extinction will delight fans as well as new gamers with its retro yet modern gameplay, updated graphics and online play!”

Bonk: Brink of Extinction is an all new downloadable adventure featuring story mode with co-op play. The loveable caveman Bonk and his huge head returns to save the world from a doomsday comet on a collision course with Earth. Meanwhile the comet’s magnetic field is driving the planet’s creatures crazy and smaller bits of debris are smashing into the jungle near Bonk's home. Bonk must swim, bite, climb, jump, run and headbutt his way through jungles, deserts and volcanic caverns while earning power ups, reaching check points and gaining extra health on a perilous journey to the very center of the planet. Bonk: Brink of Extinction also features new transformations as Bonk morphs into eight different forms by eating meat or encountering Primordial Ooze.

Initially made for NEC’s TurboGrafx-16 console in 1990, Bonk’s Adventure was a platform adventure title that earned a committed fan base and earned Game of the Year honors. Bonk’s Revenge and Bonk 3: Bonk’s Big Adventure followed up the classic title on TurboGrafx-16. Nintendo also featured Bonk in the Gameboy title also named Bonk’s Revenge and Super Bonk for the Super NES. With the introduction of the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console, Hudson brought back Bonk's Adventure as the first title available under the TurboGrafx-16 library.
