New WiiWare Game’s Got More Abs Than Frank Miller’s 300

Move over Mario. Your flabby gut’s got nothin’ on Muscle March.

Today Namco Bandai announced that its Nintendo WiiWare title, a ‘quirky Japanese action game stuffed full of macho bodybuilders,’ will be released in the U.S. this Winter (it was released in Japan back in May).

Up to four players can take the role of Tony and his muscle-laden, speedo-clad crew. The aim of the game is to flex your muscles in the right positions with the Wii remote and catch the dastardly thieves who stole your precious protein powder. The game also promises that “the all new Polar-Bear-in-a-Swimsuit Engine” will take bodybuilding “to a level beyond your imagination!” (Take that Unreal and CryEngine!)

Aimed at ages 10 and up, the game’s ripe with rainbows and homoerotic images reminiscent of the Cho Aniki series — I can’t wait to play it. But let’s hope they made improvements to the game since its Japanese release; otherwise, it could be a waste of money.

Check out the colorful screenshots below, and if you’re up for the challenge, you can get tickets to Muscle March‘s gun show in Winter 2010.
