As well as a teaser trailer, which you can see below, the firm has launched a website - Eggcitingnews.com - featuring an egg box with a pair of eyes staring out from within and the words: "Guess who's back?"

Codemasters communications manager Rich Eddy tweeted: "Time for a fresh eggventure."

Created by the Oliver Twins, who later went on to form Blitz Games Studios, the Dizzy franchise was one of the most successful European game brands of the late 1980s.

Based around the exploits of an intelligent egg-like creature, the platform puzzle solving games typically saw Dizzy trying to save his friends and family, the Yolkfolk. Treasure Island Dizzy on Atari ST was the first one this writer played and remembers fondly.

It'll be very interesting to see how Codies updates the series. We reckon an XBLA, PSN and PC downloadable game would make sense. What would you like to see?
