Wii U’s eShop continues to accumulate titles and build its own unique library of games, and the latest title to join the fun is Dolores Entertainment’s Ice Cream Surfer. The evil Broccoli (who looks disturbingly like Hitler with a head made of that same vegetable) has tired of ice cream long being so beloved, and decides to set out to destroy the Flavor Universe. But never fear… five heroes will save the world from tasteless vegetables! Ace, Sailor, Twister, Rei Tou, Hima, and Super Cream, the game’s five playable characters, lead the good fight to keep everyone free to eat their favorite dessert.

If Ice Cream Surfers sounds a little crazy, it seems fair to say that’s by design. It’s actually based on a comic series of the same name by Stephen Hausdorff, and it, too, is charmingly surreal. The game is an autoscrolling shooter, similar to titles like Gradius, and each character has a unique set of attack moves. The screen fills with enemies and special attacks quickly, but it’s all hilariously in the form of flying vegetables, anime-inspired heroes, and bombastic backgrounds. There’s no firm release date in place, but the title shows promise.

Are any of you planning on hitting the waves with Ice Cream Surfer? Do you think broccoli gets a bad rap? Comment below!
