As we all know, Nintendo have themselves a family-friendly, cutesy, brightly colored, the-sun-shines-out-of-everyone's-assholes sort of reputation. There's no Grand Theft Auto, no Call of Duty, no hideous FPS games or the like. If there is an occasional Mortal Kombat or something, they'll insist that the blood is green so that Little Jimmy doesn't choke on his own outraged vomit.

This is why their consoles aren't the go-to for studly gamer dudes like you and I. What was the last Wii U exclusive game you bought? Can you name a Wii U exclusive, come to that? That's what I thought.

Well, you can stop your heckling now, buddy boy. The first essential video game of 2016 has been announced, and you won't find it anywhere else. Feast your eyes on… Epic Dumpster Bear.

Oh yes indeed. The Wii U eShop is notorious for being a festival of shit for the most part, but this is right up there with the weirdest slices of weird it's ever offered. Here's the sales pitch, fresh from the trailer below:

An evil corporation destroyed his forest…

Forcing him to eat dumpster food to survive…

Now it's his turn to take out the trash!

Which is all you need to know, really. What follows is a kind of endless runner/platformer of suitably epic proportions. You'll want to see this bad boy in action:
