BBFC classifies Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise

Gives a U to a... new Nintendo DS game?

The BBFC has just issued a Universal rating to something called Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise, a piece of digital media submitted to them by THQ International.

In July last year, Rare let out a single screenshot of a Viva Pinata game for the Nintendo DS, but since then nothing has been said about it.

Until now. Sort of, that is. The name 'Pocket Paradise' really lends weight to it and the Nintendo DS game being one and the same, but why would THQ be publishing it?

Colour us confused. We've tried contacting the PR people at THQ, but they're all out of the office today, apparently.
