Icarian: Kindred Spirits flies onto WiiWare this Friday

Posted by Darren Calvert

If you live in Europe of course!

The good people at Over The Top Games have informed us that their WiiWare debut, Icarian: Kindred Spirits will be released on Friday, 19th June in Europe. It’s only fair that we get it first as the developer is Spanish, of course.

The game will cost 1000 Nintendo points, but from what we have seen and heard it should be well worth the price of admission. Don't forget that the first 100 registered Club Nintendo UK members to download the game will receive a digital copy of its soundtrack.

We’re expecting that North America will get Icarian soon after Europe. Fingers crossed for before the end of June!

Don’t forget to check out our exclusive developer interview from way back in January.

I'll be waiting.
Actually, to heck with the soundtrack. I'll just play the game when I feel I want to, and listen to the music then.

I'll be waiting on the shop channel at 23:00 precisely to buy the game and get me my free soundtrack :)

Waiting for the review.
Never espected anything from this game. Dont know why, but i never spected nothing. The videos i saw were boring, and the images looked emprty to me....

This game looks crisp. I'm glad to see it's coming out, even though I'm not getting it yet. I look toward the review.

Curse wario and his stealth firstie.

I'm excited about this one. So much so that I MIGHT not even wait for a review. (Though, since it's coming out in EU first, the odds are pretty good there will be plenty of reviews by the time I even get to buy it.)

Oh wow! Europe sure is lucky to be getting this game on Friday! I hope it comes to the US soon because I can't wait for this one! At least we'll get to read the review before it comes out!

Looks good, but I'll wait till the review before I even think about buying it. Which reminds me, will we get the Mario clock review soon, since it's only a clock?

Well after today's dissapointment with no SSB64 on the VC... :(
This is good news! :D
I'm crossing my fingers too for a end of June release for Icarian! :)
Because even if it does come out in July... I seriously don't want to wait that long! :(
I've had points saved up for SSB64; but now I'm going to hold on to them & not use them for another freaking week! Same goes for waiting for Icarian... which I so freaking badly want as well! ;)

I still dunno about this "first 100" promo. I see no reason to limit to so few, if at all. It sounds to me like a good way to get tons of people to download it without waiting for the review. That said, I'm hoping for good things with this game.

I'm not interested in this, but it's well recieved, so since it's not "shovelware", obviously, Europe gets it before us... :(

I'm totally going to try to be in the first 100.

There's a new feature on the Nintendo Channel called "We are WiiWare" that is a nice interview thing with the developers of this title. I really hope NoE continues this and we'll see more of these specials focusing on flash new WiiWare titles. If you live in Europe get on the Nintendo Channel and check it out; you'll feel the hype!

I'm not sure, I think I'll wait for the review, although I probably will enjoy it. The developers are from the same part of the city of Madrid I used to live in until recently, Vallecas, so I'm hoping it's a great game and they do very well with it :D

Mario Clock review should be up by in the morning. I'm writing it up now.

Depending on reviews, this might very well be the first WiiWare title I buy since Bubble Bobble, and the first since World of Goo that I don't primarily buy for the sake of filling a hole in my collection. So hopefully it's good.

I'm curious to see what the review says for Icarian. I love a platformer, but this one looks a but funky and floaty, so I'm not sure what to think at this point.

I'll be waiting for the review, and hopefully the game to come out in the US soon there after.

It doesn't call my attention as it did when it was mentioned for the first time, the visuals seem a bit too styled, I prefer more classical platformers, still, lets wait and see what the review has to say.

Looks interesting, but I might wait for the review. Luckily the review will be out before it hits the U.S. since Europe gets it this week.

Love a good platformer, getting new ones for £10 feels good too.

Make sure you all buy this, support our indie WiiWare developers!

Not this week I won't. I'm getting Super Monkey Ball 2 for just over a fiver and Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for three quid from Ebay. Now that's £8 well spent. Going to see how much I can get Super Smash Bros. Melee for too, as I'm after the best game in the series after playing the second best on VC.

Well, good news at least. Let's hope this one's not a lie like the release list... If I wanted to get my hopes up to ridiculous levels I'd say something about hoping for three WW games like the US got but that's so unlikely it'd automatically come true on the Discworld. Water Warfare is probably very unlikely as well.

Calculon: It was present at E3 IIRC.

From the videos I've seen, there doesn't seem to be many enemys. Hope it has more than it seems to have. It looks pretty. I just hope it's a decent game.

I loved LostWinds so I hope that this also a quality platformer (feel free to be longer, Icarian) and I hope it makes its way over to the NA soon.

So we get Let's Catch and Icarian on Friday, plus there's Smash bros. to catch up on. It's going to be an expensive week.

longtimegamer: From the videos I've seen it looked like it's more about environmental hazards than regular enemies.
