Hudson Announces Chew Man Fu for Mobile, Wii
Hudson Entertainment announced today that its TurboGrafx-16 classic puzzler Chew Man Fu is headed to both mobile phones and the Nintendo Wii virtual console. The mobile release has been modernized, while the Wii version is a straight port of the original 1990 title.

"Chew Man Fu represents an era of gameplay during which Hudson established itself as a creator of fun games that were easy to pick up and play, and also appealed to a wide range of gamers," said John Greiner, president of Hudson Entertainment. "With such a fantastic catalog of games released over the last 30 years, Hudson is in a great position to bring back some of these classics to a whole new generation of gamers."
