Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails is a colourful and rather challenging Wii U exclusive from Dakko Dakko, and has already gathered a band of devoted fans. The literal approach to on-rails shooting is certainly fun, albeit a number of gamers may find the level of challenge a bit too much to handle.

As a positive for those unsure of whether to jump in, however, it goes on sales in today's European Nintendo Download Update, down to €4.99 / £4.49 for one week. Dakko Dakko's Rhodri Broadbent has taken to Miiverse to not only remind gamers of the discount, but to confirm that an update is in the works for the title; details are below.

Along with the sale, the other big news for Scram Kitty fans is that we're working on releasing an update for the game. As well as fixing a couple of stage progression issues that have been pointed out to us on Miiverse (thanks, Miiverse!) - the update will also improve the balance of a number of stages, and make the double-jump easier to pull off for new players and veterans alike.

With the update, you'll find all the mutant mice to be more entertaining and more rewarding to battle, while encounters with Mouse Commanders will be a bit more strategic and less frantic. We're just putting the finishing touches to the update, and we'll let you know as soon as it's ready (it hopefully won't be long, but there's a lot of testing to do!).

It'll be interesting to see how these tweaks adjust the experience, and it seems we don't have long to wait. Are you a fan of Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, or perhaps just holding off to see what improvements the update brings? Let us know.
