Bonk: Brink of Extinction Is... Extinct

Sad news comes our way today, with news of a co-op classic retro-remake cancellation.  The ironically titled Bonk: Brink of Extinction is going the way of the dodo and the Tasmanian tiger.  The game was announced in 2009, and we hadn't heard much about it since then.  Developer Hudson cancelled the title, along with a Bomberman game for the 3DS, in the aftermath of the recent disaster in Japan.  Though disappointing for fans of classic co-op like myself, the news is certainly understandable given the circumstances.  Perhaps Bonk will turn up again at some later date; we can always hope.  But for now, you'll have to headbutt your friends in real life instead of over XBLA or PSN.
