Hey everyone! GetClose now offers a brand new mode called "Protect the Crown". This new mode offers 8 new levels, and allows you to play solo (you can also still play co-op with friends). Protect the crown within the time limit from a seemingly endless horde of baddies! This update will hit Wii U's in NOA today. Watch for it!
