Oni Prequel?
8:55 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

FGN has a very interesting report about a possible prequel to Oni from the new owners of the license, TakeTwo. Unlike the current game, the prequel will be developed for WAP-enabled devices like phones or hand helds by a company called Quantum Sheep. Here's a quote from the report with more on this odd development:

"Despite the limitations of the mobile format, Quantum Sheep has done a fantastic job of creating a game which is not only easy to pick up and play, it doesn't require players to be connected to their service providers for an age," explained Rachel England, Head of Online International Marketing, Take Two. "However, Take Two's commitment to mobile phone users doesn't end here - we've yet another superb and unique service launching to coincide with the PlayStation 2 release."
It seems the title will be a simple sort of training simulator for Konoko. We're not exactly sure about the content or how thrilling it is to play a game on your cell phone, but you can check out the Quantum Sheep site for more info.
