Color Zen to Chill Out on the Wii U eShop in North America Today, Europe on 22nd May

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

And... relax

A little ahead of the official North American download update from Nintendo, it's been confirmed that chilled-out puzzle game Color Zen will arrive on the Wii U eShop today; it'll come to Europe one week later on 22nd May.

Developed by Large Animal and published by Cypronia, this is being plugged as a "new kind of puzzle game". With headphones encouraged, it appears to revolve around connecting abstract shapes and colours, with 460 levels and a focus on the soundtrack with work from musician Steve Woodzell.

It seems like an ambitious idea, as any game that seeks relaxation and immersion sets itself a tough task. North American gamers will see for themselves today — pricing to be confirmed — while we can all check out the trailer, below.

This game is total quality i love it on my ipad & Note 3 and normally gets 5/5 gold ward reviews etc, another decent title for the eShop then, will pick this up when on sale i think.

It seems it uses very basic colors, so I guess my color blindness will be able to handle it. Very cheap to boot.

Why couldn't it be released today here in Europe as well?
I need this to cool down after Scram Kitty.

Got a demo of this during lab work shore crabs last summer, it was pretty good and will definitely consider buying for Wii u

I can go for some zen gameplay from time to time. That Japanese paper craft game looks similarly relaxing.

40's style color and shape play as a game?

I can dig it!

Though I'm unsure as to how "zen" it is. Seems rather bold and dramatic.

been playing this jem for the last hour. it's totally worth the price. honestly it could be higher with this much 4.99 or 5.99 but then i probably wouldn't have taken a chance on it.

Gotta admit … the music is impressive. I think I'll take a dive into the game just for the soundtrack. Everything else will be gravy!
