A World Of Keflings Now Expected In "The Latter Half" Of Q1 2014

Posted by Damien McFerran

Will the wait be worth it?

A World of Keflings was supposed to hit the Wii U eShop last year, but the game sadly missed its scheduled launch date. Thankfully, developer NinjaBee Games has addressed the slippage and insists that the title will see the light of day this year:

A kingdom-building adventure of epic proportions, A World of Keflings has already launched on Xbox Live Arcade. It will allow you to take your Mii on a fantastical journey through a fantasy realm, where you can do everything from compose music to create an entire city. This is sure to be a solid addition to the Wii U eShop — are you excited about playing it at last?

In the meantime, check out this trailer for the XBLA edition of the game:

The premise is intriguing, but I'm not feeling it from the trailer. Looks kinda sloppy and lacking in personality.

I sense some intriguing potential in there combining Gullivers Travels w/ a simcity building type game, but those Wiiware 40mb limit graphics are a real turnoff. Jett Rocket looked better. And that video w/ the blaring music wasn't helping any.
I'll still keep an eye on it though as a split screen co-op game could be good for my kids.

People love bacon.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

Don't see myself picking this one up, just got done with W101 and started xenoblade chronicles (never played it before) and I still have Sonic Lost World to get to and I have to find time to get back to Monster hunters 3 Ultimate (Never played a Monster Hunters game before either)

played & deleted the xbox live version. It was one of the early titles on live & wasn't much to write home about.

@Morph - I know, my problem is the graphics LOOK LIKE there is a 40mb limit. It looks more like a Wii game than a Wii U game. If this were on 3DS I'ld say it looked just ok.

I think the pic at the top of this article is from the 360 version. With that Xbox avatar and all.

They are fun games on the 360. The graphics aren't the best on the 360, but who know's about the Wii U version? Anyway, I recommend you pick it up even if for your children. Gameplay is solid and the characters are lovable.

Looks great, I love these kind of games. Plus the multiplayer seems enjoyable.

I've played this before, and I'd say it's definitely worth the wait for a Wii U version. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game again. :)

I LOVE A Kingdom for Keflings, I also have this one the xbox but I haven't played it as much.

I'd totally buy both again on the WiiU.

I got this from Xbox Live Arcade and I can honestly say that, if Nintendo's eShop also keep the price to an acceptable level, it is definitely worth buying. It is very enjoyable. It has a nice learning curve, it is funny and the whole atmosphere around the game while you play it is nice, once you start playing, hours just fly by. I do agree with rjejr that the opera music in the trailer posted can get on your nerves, so here's a couple of clips that are more watchable. The first is a review and the second is a Let's Play of the first level. Set them to HD and full screen and enjoy!

And @rjejr: the graphics aren't that bad on TV. I have a 42" HD plasma screen and it looks just fine. Maybe it's the quality of YouTube, I don't know. Also, they are stylized, so I think it is safe to say that they wanted the game to have this kind of look.

This looks good, except I got it for free on my Xbox thanks to the games with gold thingy.
Might get this if it's reasonably priced - with off TV play I might actually play it.

Shy of blown out of the water reviews, this one is all going to come down to price point for me. To many great indies on the Wii U now, starting to have to pick and choose. That makes me happy and sad.. =/

This is my favourite of the two Kefling games and I will definitely buy this for Wii U, if only because I can't play it on my 360 due to requiring new controllers and not having enough HDMI ports or spare power plugs to have my 360 connected.
I'm also interested to see if there's any improvements in the Wii U version.

@MadAdam81 It seems to me that of all the problems you listed, the controllers are the only real one since they don't come cheap. For both the power and the HDMI you could use splitters/hubs. As for the controllers, I don't know if you need or want them to be originals, but if you don't have the cash for that or if you don't mind either way, then take a look here: http://www.tmart.com/Wireless-Controller-for-XBox-360-Black_p122440.html?cc=AUD and here are several others: http://www.tmart.com/search.html?q=Xbox360&typeid=3230 And before you ask: yes they work. I have bought extra controllers here for both my Wii and Xbox360 and they not only look and feel exactly the same, the build quality is also similar. The only thing missing on it is the branding/logos. And it's free shipping worldwide, also if they happen to be defective or anything the customer service is superb. So either way, take a look and decide for yourself. And you could get an HDMI splitter here too: http://www.tmart.com/search.html?q=HDMI+splitter I have this one myself, works like a charm: http://www.tmart.com/3-Port-HDMI-1.3-Switch-Switcher-Splitter-Selector-for-HDTV-PS3_p170699.html
You could probably also find power plug extensions/hubs, but I haven't checked.
