Death Jr.: Root of Evil Announced and Screens

Stalking the Wii this summer
Eidos Interactive Ltd. today confirmed that Death Jr.: Root of Evil, a spine-tingling, humorous platform shooter in the works at Backbone Entertainment, will be released on Nintendo Wii in summer 2008. Players will take on the role of the Grim Reaper's teenage son, Death Jr., as he and his friend Pandora, whilst arguing over a cocoon they've collected for a school biology project, accidently release an evil and powerful spirit called Furi. In order to stop Furi and her hordes of nasty minions, Death Jr. and Pandora must team up with their wacky group of friends and fight their way across a series of crazy, fun-filled locations.
