EnjoyUp Games Bringing Its Timely 99Seconds to the Wii U eShop

Posted by Martin Mann

We're still hoping for the sequel 99Problems

EnjoyUp Games has announced that its previous DSiWare exclusive, 99Seconds, is set to grace the Wii U eShop. The game was originally launched on the DSi in 2012 and is the sequel to 99Bullets. Playing as V-99, the retro-styled 99Seconds has the player modifying time to avoid all kinds of dangers, tasked with dodging and weaving between enemies and obstructions to survive. The Wii U upgrade promises improvements, including the following from the press release:

  • 5 Players in Arcade and Survival mode
  • 60 Images per second in 1080p

No official date or price have been formally announced, but be sure to check back for details. Did you like the DSiWare original, and are you keen on this updated Wii U version?

I was intrigued by these games on DS, but never ended up checking them out. Will be interesting to see how the Wii U version turns out. An unrelated, though similarly named "10 Second Run" on DSiWare was one of my favorites however.

@ChrisT99 Jay Z has a cool song "Ive got 99 problems but a B*tch aint one"

Excusing the profanity and sexist vibes its a great track, which you kind of have to do if you like hip hop, its a great track.

As to why its in this article, I assume the writer is an old school hip hop fan.

The premise intrigues me as I've never heard of these games until now, not a fan of Sh'mups so I don't care for 99bullets and I haven't seen any video for 99seconds but 5 player time manipulation has my ear to the ground.

edit Okay, I saw a video for 99seconds on DSi, it looks like a fun little distraction that could conceivably have me and some friends laughing together. If the price is around $1.99, I may take a closer look at this one.

The original didn't have a ton of replay value, but it was a neat idea and pretty fun while it lasted. I'd love to be able to play this game again with four (4) other people!
