Crowdfunding just got a whole lot Wii U-er

Kickstarter is once again the name with the games, as three unique new projects are all trying to crowdfund their way to Wii U stretch goals. The first of the Wii U hopefuls is Tadpole Treble, an aquatic adventure in which an adorable tadpole wiggles across levels that are set up as musical notation. As...

Pier Solar HD Now Targeting Release in March 2014

Lengthy update outlines positive reaction to visuals at Indiecade

Pier Solar HD, an enhanced re-release of WaterMelon's Mega Drive / Genesis title released in 2010, is certainly on the radar of various members of the Nintendo Life team. It promises a rather traditional piece of RPG gaming, but will come with a HD sheen on the Wii U eShop. This HD...

Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths Will Find Its Way Onto the Wii U eShop on 21st November

Will arrive on the 3DS store "a couple of weeks later"

Review: Toki Tori (Wii U eShop)

Toki Tori (Wii U eShop)

Super cheap puzzle fun

Many moons ago, when WiiWare first launched on the Wii, Two Tribes had Toki Tori ready to go as one of the very first games on the service. It was a remake of the Game Boy Color game, which in itself was also a pseudo-remake; we liked it a lot. Unfortunately for some, however, a PC version of the game was released not too...

Review: Wario's Woods (Wii U eShop / NES)

Wario's Woods (Wii U eShop / NES)

Kinopio's Canopy

Wario's Woods has had quite a storied legacy over the last few decades, standing not only as the last officially licensed game released on Nintendo's legendary NES in North America in 1994, but also one of the very first titles available on the Wii's Virtual Console service. In-between those impressive milestones, it made an...

14th November (North America)

Mario & Sonic, cheaper Zelda, busty brawling and much more

The Nintendo Download news has come in later than usual today, and no wonder. It's another lengthy list to get through this week, with some major retail releases joining a host of download-only options. With further preamble, let's get to it. Wii U Virtual Console: Uncharted Waters: New...

Nintendo of America Launches Weekly eShop Price Promotions

This week is all about the Zelda franchise

While many announcements in today's regional Nintendo Direct broadcasts were largely similar in both North America and Europe, one promotion confirmed by Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime may make some European gamers jealous. It's been confirmed that there'll be weekly eShop promotions covering the...

Nintendo Delivers Another eShop Sizzle Reel to Hype Some Download Treats

Wii U and 3DS eShop releases featured

During its August Nintendo Direct broadcast Nintendo of Europe released a rather awesome eShop sizzle reel.

The first step towards a single account system?

Ubisoft Unveils Illuminating New Child of Light Walkthrough Footage

More than just a pretty face?

One of two new UbiART titles announced by Ubisoft just a few months ago, Child of Light caught the attention of the public with a whimsical style that stepped away from the outright zaniness of the celebrated frameworks' counterpart; Rayman Legends. Today we've been treated to a video demo of the game's mechanics, and...

Review: Wii Sports Club: Bowling (Wii U eShop)

Wii Sports Club: Bowling (Wii U eShop)

No splits here

When it comes to the games in the original Wii Sports that felt the most realistic and compelling, Bowling would have to be a candidate as the best of the lot. Golf and Baseball may have a say, too, while Tennis and Boxing — most definitely the latter — perhaps had the greatest degree of waggle. The fact Bowling reappeared in...

Review: Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop)

Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop)

What the deuce?

Way back at E3 2011, in that Wii U reveal that rather bizarrely confused half of those watching, Nintendo showed remixes of Wii Sports events that showed the GamePad being utilised in creative ways. It's perhaps surprising that over two years after that visual demo, we're just now seeing the iconic Wii pack-in make its way to...

Picross, Mega Man returns, unpronounceable puzzles, discounts and more

It's just another manic Monday, dear readers, but Europeans can once again take solace in the week's download offerings. This time around we have the continuation of a popular puzzle series, a new puzzle IP, some rather fun 16-bit Mega Man and a scattering of other goodies...

News: Nintendo Land Has Been Removed From the North American eShop

Nintendo Land Has Been Removed From the North American eShop

Closing its doors on downloads

At the beginning of this month Nintendo of America cut the price of Nintendo Land in half, chopping the recommended charge from $59.99 to £29.99 in stores and on the eShop. That's certainly a tempting price for those that didn't get a copy with their system, and makes sense with new bundles mixing up the packed-in...

Review: Baseball (Wii U eShop / NES)

Baseball (Wii U eShop / NES)

Not quite a grand slam

Originally released alongside the launch of the Nintendo Entertainment System in the 1980s, Nintendo's Baseball is one of several simple, lean titles that, while primitive and slow by today's standards, still show a special Nintendo pedigree. Ideally these games would be released as a compilation; the content in Baseball,...

Interview: Dakko Dakko on Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, Clever Cats and Utilising the Wii U

Dakko Dakko on Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, Clever Cats and Utilising the Wii U

"We’re making an interesting hybrid of some of our favourite games"

While the Wii U eShop has a fair number of download-only projects on the way, it's a relatively modest number that are exclusive to the platform. That's unsurprising, as development tool such as Unity — combined with supportive low cost-of-entry platforms — allow smaller...
