    Thumbs up The triumphant return of Game Fuel

    A post over on notable gaming blog Kotaku has revealed the upcoming rerelease of Mountain Dew Game Fuel, this time piggybacking on the success of World of Warcraft. What I think is particularly noteworthy is that there are actually going to be two flavors of Game Fuel: the familiar cherry citrus, and a new (perhaps) flavor, described as "wild fruit". My theory is that the wild fruit flavor is just a rebranding of Dewmocracy runner-up Revolution. Time will tell.

    As a recovering WoW player I have to say that these two beverages could be very dangerous to my well being.

    I've got an e-mail out to Pepsi asking the same questions... is this Revolution? Highly doubt they would admit that, however.

    I'm not surprised then that the blue Game Fuel is a new flavor. I think part of the marketing angle of Game Fuel was it's higher than average (even for Dew) caffeine content. Merely rehashing Revolution wouldn't fit with this premise.

    The last Game Fuel was 6.0 mg/oz caffeine vs. regular Dew's 4.6 mg/oz. Did you guys get any specs on the caffeine content in the new flavors?

    lordmadone & jerr2429 - Would you say the red flavor was about the same as the original? And how would you describe the taste of the blue flavor?

    Just got this confirmation via e-mail from Pepsi:
    The cherry flavored product featuring Horde is the same formula that was launched as part of the 2007 Halo 3 program. We decided to bring it back because of the amazing consumer response in 2007. Many consumers on the Mtn Dew message boards and forums have been requesting that flavor.
    Also...
    Alliance Blue is a completely new flavor developed specifically for this launch.
