One of our highlights of PAX West, from a Nintendo gaming standpoint, was Pirate Pop Plus. Developed by Dadako and published by 13AM Shipping Solutions, it brings Pang / Buster Bros. to mind and has a huge amount of retro charm; we certainly enjoyed our hands on time with it.

It's a game that's fast-paced and has a terrific aesthetic, and the good news is that it's not far away. It's coming to the eShop on Wii U and New 3DS in North America and PAL territories on 20th October, and will cost $4.99 in the US. It's crossbuy too, so you can get both versions for five bucks on the same Nintendo Network ID.

The video below does a great job of showing off what this one's all about, so check it out.

Are you planning to pick this up when it arrives on the Wii U and New 3DS eShop? Let us know in the comments.
