Fix-It Felix Jr on the Commodore C64? Oh yes it's happening!

I'm sure many of you by now have seen Disney Animation’s Wreck It Ralph; a cartoon which follows the journey of a villain from an old 1980’s arcade game that at the time in reality never actually existed. Well you may or may not know, that not only did it actually spawn a real online and mobile based game called 'Fix-It Felix, Jr.' which played just like a Donkey Kong clone from 1982. But it also spawned a homebrew Sega Genesis emulator version, that had been ported by enthusiast programmer Future Driver for the Genesis/Mega Drive consoles.

So why are we mentioning this fabulous game as if it was released in 1982? Well not only was a Fix-It Felix Jr based game released on the Commodore Amiga as of last year, but as of today we've been told by Steven Day in the Commodore 64/128 Facebook group, that a high quality version of the game is also coming to the C64! As noted by Steven Day " I'm Gonna Wreck It! next on the list of retro projects is the c64 version of the faux retro game from Wreck It Ralph...Fix It Felix. with Antonio Savona and Saul Cross".
