WayForward Officially Reveals ‘Cat Girl Without Salad’
The announcement of DuckTales Remastered caused a lot of people to freak the hell out, but that wasn’t the only trick WayForward had up their sleeves. They’ve got a new IP coming “exclusively” to Nintendo 3DS, DS, Wii, Wii U, XBLA, PSN, PC, Vita, iOS, and Android this Fall.
According to WayForward, “The game combines elements from several gaming genres, including puzzler, platformer, shmup, action, shooter, adventure, strategy, fighting, rhythm, arcade, horror, tactical, RPG, TPS, RTS, and visual novel.”
The story “follows the adventures of Kebako — a female space bounty hunter and four-star chef — searching for love and adventure on the intergalactic space seas. Kebako is joined by her insipid squadron of Calamarites on their quest to rid the cosmos of the notoriously-tardy NekoNekoNeko Clan.”
Check out the Trailer:
“Okay, time for a slight history lesson: Back in 2013, popular indie developers WayForward announced that they would be creating a new game called Cat Girl Without Salad, which consisted of a bounty hunter/chef and her team of calamari taking down the NekoNekoNeko clan in a puzzle/platformer/shooter/rhythm/horror/fighting/visual novel/et cetera/et cetera game to be released on every platform imaginable.
The whole thing was an April Fool’s joke, with only a single mock screenshot and a few fake assets released. However, it turned out that this would be one of those April Fool’s jokes that had the side effect of people legitimately wanting the real product after all was said and done. So despite being a one-off joke, Cat Girl Without Salad developed a bit of a following, with a good chunk of tribute art for main character Kebako and her Calamarites popping up over the years, despite no actual game existing.”
