MDK, for all its faults, rather deserved to be numbered among the PC classics of yore. Thing is, it’s not. I guess you could call it a cult classic, but that would take some doing as well, considering most of the people who played it its heyday are now pushing thirty and haven’t heard the name in close to a decade.
Enter the new digital future and its glorious power of giving forgotten almost-classics a new lease on life. “MDK 2 for WiiWare has entered the final stages of the certification process” Trent Oster, head of IdeaSpark Labs, the people behind the port announced on the company’s forums.
So what Steam did for Psychonauts is what WiiWare should do for MDK 2, now that it’s getting a release on Nintendo’s service, right? Not exactly, since WiiWare isn’t breaking any sales or marketing records.
Enter the new and improved PC version, aka MDK 2 HD, which will be launched on the… Beamdog distribution service? Wait, what? Apparently they’re also taking feedback about the upcoming PC MDK 2 HD. Umm, I don’t know, launch it on Steam?
