Kickstarter Campaign Opens For A Hat In Time

Wii U version possible, although it's not promised

Back in February, we reported that 3D platformer A Hat In Time could make its way to Wii U, after developer Jonas Kærlev explained how he was in touch with a publisher that had taken an interest in bringing it to the system. A Kickstarter campaign has just launched for the beautiful cel-shaded...

A Young Person Plays Super Metroid

Y CAN'T METROID CRAWL

I've been playing a videogame called Super Metroid Primes this week. It is not very good. When I saw that Dave had given the game a perfect score in his review last week, I was very excited to try it out for myself, especially considering that it was only 30p (or 30 cents, if you're on that side of the pond) on the Wii U...

Weirdness: A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Through Super Metroid

A Wii U Gamer's Miiverse Journey Through Super Metroid

A long and confusing road

A little while ago we posed a question — is Super Metroid too taxing for today's gamers? This was based on the explosion of confused Miiverse posts once the title arrived for $0.30/€0.30/£0.30 on the Wii U eShop, as some gamers grappled with a retro title that resolutely refused to guide them through each step. One...

Review: Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Third time's the charming

Kirby’s Dream Land 3 is the epitome of a lovable gaming experience. Carefree and popping with irresistible charm, this SNES platformer builds off the two previous Game Boy entries in the series and fulfills the potential they introduced. That doesn’t mean the core mechanics have suddenly become nuanced or up to par with...

Mega Man X Blasting Its Way Onto Wii U Virtual Console This Week

X marks the spot

Mega Man X, Capcom's first entry in the 'X' series of games for the Blue Bomber, is set to release on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America this week, on the 30th May; considering how synchronised many of the Wii U VC releases have been to date, there are decent odds that it'll also arrive in Europe's next download update...

Shin'en Multimedia Defends The Wii U Hardware

Upcoming Wii U game is likely a sequel to FAST

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo)

Bring fresh underwear

There’s a school of thought which argues that modern gamers have it too easy, and that this generation of players has grown soft thanks to the fact that developers are all too happy to provide helpful tutorials and short-cuts intended to reduce frustration. You only need to spend a few painful minutes in the company of Super...

A.N.N.E Developer Confirms Wii U Version, Regardless of Kickstarter Stretch Goal

Failure to hit target will merely delay eventual release

In recent times we've seen plenty of Kickstarter projects offer up stretch goals for Wii U or 3DS releases, and a number of them have hit those targets. A.N.N.E, on the other hand, doesn't look likely to hit its amended Wii U target of $140,000, as it's resting on just under $90,000 — at...

Review: Xevious (Wii U eShop / NES)

Xevious (Wii U eShop / NES)

An early vertical scrolling classic

When Xevious hit arcades in 1982 it represented one of the first vertical shoot 'em ups of its kind. Not only that, but the game introduced a second bombing mechanic to give it a little more flare. After seeing a handful of home releases, it sprang upon the NES system with a vengeance and once again showed that...

Super Mario Bros. 2 (Wii U eShop / NES)

The stuff dreams are made of

By now we all know the story of Super Mario Bros. 2: concerns about the Japanese sequel to the original Super Mario Bros. kept it from release in North America and Europe. Different reasons have been given over time, from the game being too difficult to it simply not demonstrating enough creativity to keep gamers...
