Codemasters to crack into new Dizzy game (no yolk)

Codemasters is teasing the return of one of the most seggessful, eggciting, and eggtraordinary Yolkfolk mascots in the studio's history. And yes, as you can tell by the flood of forced egg puns hitting the internet today, that mascot is none other than the egg-shaped, puzzle-platforming hero Dizzy, who looks to be getting a second crack at videogame stardom according to a new website and teaser trailer:

Dizzy's resurrection has also been advertised on Codemaster's website, and the UK-studio's PR boss Rich Eddy today confirmed the team was one day away from an official announcement, tweeting, “We'll name the date for #EggmergenceDay tomorrow.”

Eddy has since updated his feed with more goofy egg references, urging fans to get an 'eggducation' by visiting Dizzy fansites and prepare for an 'eggventure'.

Dizzy first debuted back in 1986 with Dizzy - The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure, spawning eight sequels and a slew of spin-offs. Codemasters isn't saying how it plans to bring its anthropomorphic egg into the 21st century, but our bet is a 2.5D downloadable title, cartoon racer, or gritty open-world reboot. Your predictions?

    Yes!!! Awesome news, I've been hoping for a Dizzy remake/reboot for ages, I can't wait to see what they do. I want to tie alligators mouths together with rope all over again.

    I'm hoping it's a gritty third person shooter based roughly on Resident Evil 4... Only with eggs, of course.

    If they bring the same quality level to Dizzy that they had when making the Overlord series, then there will be nothing to worry about. Also, please make Overlord 3, Codemasters. Overlord and Overlord 2 are some of my favorite games. Please?

    Heh, Yahtzee will be ecstatic. And yes, i know i could have made an egg pun there, some of us have SOME dignity around here. :P

    With an eggitude like that, you can just take your happy ass over (easy) to Gamespot. And I'm not yolking. Also: egg.

    I hope it's something more modern, a silly take on Zelda style games would please me no end. Are you listening Codies? PLEASE ME!!

    That was an eggcellent pun.

    I'm calling the 'HD remake' card. I think it's telling that the video is about retrieving an old Dizzy from the warehouse, rather than building a new one. Still, I'd love to see a new Dizzy. I hope it comes out on PC though. And no racing nonsense!
