FLCL Game In Development For Wii U?

Namco Bandai is apparently busy developing a game based on the Fooly Cooly franchise  for Wii U. The information stemmed from a the 2001 series’s IMDB page message boards, which isn’t exactly the most reliable place on the internet. VG247 contacted a Namco Bandai representative to see if there was any truth to the rumour, but as expected they refused to comment.

        1. You should relax, broseph. Also I’ve watched both, and the substance in FLCL is cleverly hidden, like Dark Souls.

    1. I can only hope you’re joking.

      That aside, how would a FLCL game even play? I can guess mech battle, but FLCL was never really about the fighting… interesting to say the least.

  1. Well this would be completely weird if it happened. It would never see a Western release ever, but still. FLCL was just nucking futts.

    1. actually dude, flcl got a WAY bigger audience in america then japan so It’s quite possible they would send it here! but that leads to my questioning on why they would make it in the first place ._.

  2. OMG, yes! XD I could see them doing some pretty cool 4th-wall breaking stuff with the two screens (and perhaps the panoramic view).

  3. this would make me buy a Wii U although it seems unlikely. Then again the last series Gaianx animated was just before development is rumored to have started and we havnt heard of any other projects from them. It would be interesting if someone got in contact with some of the English dub cast to see If they’ve heard anything about it

  4. gameplay, you’re the kid running around doing whatever he does, I only saw a few of the 6 episodes, so like 2 or 3, and then some stuff happens, and then robot mech battles in a 2-D fighter style. IDK, I think 2-D fighting would work well for this. Add in a few cut scenes and Fourth wall breaking techniques into the Utablet and some new “episodes” with things like his brother returning or other such stuff. Maybe control vespa lady Haruko for some stuff, this could be a cult classic. Me sense something japanese this way comes :D

  7. Ah FLCL . Love the complexity of it and the insanity :D . Also the music selection rocks.
    “Naota: By the time I realized it, I had already swung the bat. My palms still sting. I wonder if Haruko like this all the time. ”

    1. It sounds sorta like ‘Furi Kuri’, which means breast fondling, though the title Fooly Cooly itself has no meaning. The entire show was a commentary on puberty, I wouldn’t be surprised if the furi kuri thing was intentional.

      1. Its the Romanization of Furi Kuri, the pun is definately intentional. Of course, because “R” and “L” are the same letter essentially in japanese, when it was translated into english it was Named “Fooly Cooly”.

  10. Never saw the appeal of FLCL. The animation quality and artstyle just kept me from ever being interested. I did bring myself to watch one episode start to finish, though. I just didn’t like it.
