Enter the picture-book world of Kumanage, Square Enix's adorable WiiWare title that's actually two different games. Will you choose action or puzzles?

According to Japanese gaming news website andriasang, Square Enix's Kumanage is actually two different games: Kumanage: The Blue Gem that Kiina Hates -Battle Version and Kumanage: The Red Candy that Piina Likes - Puzzle Version.

Both games feature storybook-inspired art and oddly cute characters. Both feature the throwing of paper bears. But where Kiina's has a little boy throwing paper bears and other strange creatures to protect his blue gem, Piina's version has a little girl throwing bears to activate stage gimmicks to collect red candy.

I have absolutely no idea what any of this means either. I just know the games look strikingly cute, are due out in Japan on June 8 for 1,000 Wii points apiece, and the Japanese teaser site includes an ESRB rating, indicating an impending North American release. That's good enough for me.
