Hamtaro: Ham-Hams Unite! seems to be getting a remake

Fans of the cute japanese hamster Hamtaro may rejoin to celebrate the sudden appearance of a teaser website that, along with a Nintendo logo, seems to imply the future announcement of a new Hamtaro game.

The teaser site shows a single line: “he’s back”, along with a timer. The fans are actually the ones who, by checking the website’s code source, have found a picture named “ham_unite.jpeg”, which seems to hint that the big reveal will actually be a remake of the game boy color classic Hamtaro: Ham-Ham’s Unite!, released back in 2001.

Rumors are also floating around that this may be a gritty reboot of both the show’s characters and game, instead of a simple remake. Due to Nintendo owning the right of the original game, the platform of choice will probably turn out to be the Nintendo 3DS. You can see a screen of the website right below, or check it out by yourself by visiting it.
