Priority is to "make it the ultimate and most complete Zelda game"
In a blow to Nintendo fans anticipating The Legend of Zelda for Wii U as one of the biggest releases of 2015, series producer Eiji Aonuma has released a development update stating that a 2015 release is no longer the "number one priority". Though worded carefully, it all but confirms...
Joins previously confirmed delay in Europe
Art Academy for Wii U, which will be an eShop-only release, has had a low profile existence, enduring delays and only occasional mentions by Nintendo. The full release follows the 2013 arrival of the pared-back Art Academy: SketchPad; the updated release will have the lessons and full tool-set typically...
"If you're going to make a Wii U game, it better run on the 8GB unit"
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is a critically acclaimed title that has been praised for being an accomplished reboot of a retro classic. It arrived on PSN earlier this year, though the promised Wii U eShop iteration has been absent. An explanation for the delay seems to have arrived,...
"We encountered a few last-minute issues specific to the EU version"
Shin Megami Tensei IV is a highly regarded RPG on 3DS that arrived in North America in July 2013, but has had a lengthy route to European shores. While titles such as this typically wait — potentially forever — for another publisher in Europe, Atlus has gone out of its way to...
"In order to optimise the best possible launch timing for Europe"
We recently shared with you the slightly disappointing news that Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker won't be out in Europe until next year. As the fiendish isometric puzzler appears to still be on course for a Holiday 2014 launch in North America, we reached out to Nintendo UK to enquire...
High score table causes system lockups
Update 2: Nintendo of Europe has issued the following statement: Please be informed that the Wii U title "XType Plus" has been temporarily removed from Nintendo eShop due to an issue with online leaderboards which causes a critical error. XType Plus was, however, available for a short time today and if this...
"We’ve been working literally every day, and every waking hour"
The upcoming arrival of Shovel Knight on Wii U and 3DS is undoubtedly a potential highlight in the near future, with plenty of positive vibes around the title. We'll all have to wait a little longer to see whether it fulfils its potential, however, as Yacht Club Games has issued a...
Non-PC versions will "follow shortly thereafter"
We've reported on Hyper Light Drifter a few times, as it looks like a highly promising action adventure that's on the way to the Wii U eShop along with a host of other platforms. With attractive visuals and a promise of retro-level challenge, it's certainly been on our watch-list. Unfortunately the...
A bit of a stretch
Wii Fit U is already available as a free trial on the Wii U eShop, with a synchronised Wii Fit Meter then allowing that download to become a permanent purchase. Naturally Nintendo is accommodating those that prefer a disc copy or didn't pick up the original Wii software and balance board with retail releases, which are due in...
Only on Nintendo systems and PC, though
When it comes to the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, its relationship with the Wii U has been rather frosty, which is appropriate as the Dark Knight will be beating on thugs in a Winter setting. Nintendo's system is missing out on the multiplayer mode — which itself is a first for the series — and it's...
That's on all platforms
In a surprise move, especially as it was due for release in the third week of November, Ubisoft has delayed the much-anticipated Watch_Dogs to Spring 2014. The new IP had gained plenty of attention, but there were warning signs when it was only visible as a prepared demonstration at the recent Eurogamer Expo, rather than as a...
During yesterday's Nintendo Direct shenanigans, with a slew of confirmations and mini-reveals to divert attention, Nintendo pushed back a winter 3DS release, and with a little more subtlety than the formal announcement of the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze delay on Wii U. Nintendo of Europe has confirmed that Mario Party: Island...
It's now down for a Q2 release
We've known about Renegade Kid's upcoming Wii U eShop title Mutant Mudds Deluxe for a while now. As you may have guessed, the fun little game is an enhanced version of the 3DS eShop title Mutant Mudds. The "Deluxe" version of the game features all of the levels and DLC from the 3DS version, and throws in 20 new...
Both slip from January to "early 2013"
TVii is one of the Wii U's biggest selling points in North America, but the service hasn't had the best of starts. It didn't launch with the machine and wasn't up and running until December. Even then, it lacked TiVo - something that Nintendo insisted would be coming this month. It now turns out that TiVo...
