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:

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:
