Nintendo Australia Has No Plans for Wind Waker HD Wii U Bundle or Limited Edition

Perhaps you guys should "Triforcing" them?

Nintendo Australia confirmed earlier today that there are currently no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U Bundle or Limited Edition version.

The Wonderful 101 Struggles In Its First Week At Japanese Retail

Just 5,258 copies sold - a less than wonderful start

The Wonderful 101 is a truly fantastic piece of software, and one of the best Wii U games we've played this year. Sadly, the quality of product hasn't translated into sales, as the game has shifted less than 5,500 copies in its native Japan, according to Media Create's data. Platinum's Wii U...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD Confirmed, But Not For Wii U

Oh Konami, you little scamp

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate divided fans of the famous Konami franchise, perhaps because of its clunky name, or more likely due to its different take with a 2.5D camera and more measured, combo-driven combat. For our part we were fans, awarding 8/10 in our review. In any case, Konami's Dave Cox had...

Yakuza 1 & 2 HD Reportedly Sells Less Than 2000 Copies in Debut Week

Oh dear

Earlier this year, as part of a 'SEGA Direct' segment broadcast in Japan, Satoru Iwata and Toshihiro Nagoshi introduced Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, a bundled re-release of the two PlayStation 2 games.

Bethesda: Wii U Is "Not On Our Radar" Right Now

Company has no Wii U titles in development

Back in September last year, Bethesda — developer behind the hugely popular Elder Scrolls series — was undecided as to whether or not it would be bringing its games to the Wii U; at that stage, the idea wasn't denied nor confirmed, as it previously announced that Skyrim was a "definite possibility"...

Ashes Cricket 2013 Delayed Until November

Bowled out

If attempting to cash-in on a major sporting event, it's normally a good idea to release a game before that event takes place. That's a key lesson forgotten by 505 Games, which has today confirmed that Ashes Cricket 2013 will now arrive in November ahead of the return real-life series in Australia, missing the boat on the Summer's...

Well that's Link out of the equation

Namco Bandai has revealed an HD remake of Soul Calibur II is in development for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but there's been absolutely no mention of a Wii U adaptation.

Europe is still feeling the love, though

Namco Bandai is releasing One Piece: Romance Dawn for the 3DS in Japan next month and has confirmed it will be localised in Europe at a later date.

EA Outlines Its Reasons for Lack of Wii U Support

From "unprecedented" to "unsupported"

To say that EA's lack of support for the Wii U has been to the detriment of the fledgling console would perhaps be an understatement. With the absence of the powerhouse publisher's massive library of big-name franchises, from EA Sports to Battlefield to more casual titles like PopCap's various series, the...
