  • News The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Relationship With Indies Has Left The Company

    So long, Dan Adelman

    Nintendo's approach to indie developers has undergone a massive overhaul in recent years, and that is partly thanks to the considerable efforts of one man: Nintendo of America's Head of Digital Content and Development, Dan Adelman. Adelman was instrumental in getting indies on board with the Wii, Wii U and 3DS, and has been...

    The Citizen Kane of Web Framework games on the Wii U

    Note: XType Plus was meant to be released on 31st July along with online leaderboards, but due to a bug in the ranking functionality the game was delayed. It was reinstated on the European eShop on 6th August, and is awaiting a North American release. Nintendo has opened up the floodgates to...

  • News James Pond: Robocod Reboot No Longer Coming To Wii U

    System 3 clarifies supported platforms

    Earlier this year, there was a Kickstarter campaign for an all-new adventure based on the James Pond character created by Chris Sorrell in the early '90s. The campaign was cancelled when it failed to get anywhere near its £100,000 target. The whole matter was made all the more confusing by the...

  • News Shin'en Multimedia to Finally Show Off Fast Racing NEO in September

    Some screens to start the race

    FAST Racing NEO has had an odd but short history to date. The sequel to the popular and rather fun FAST - Racing League on WiiWare, it was unveiled with a teaser website in late 2013, with some minor noises about plans for the game in early 2014. Though the teaser site launched with "Coming 2014" text, however, a

    Review IQ Test

    Prepare to put on your dunce cap

    The Wii U eShop is filled to the brim with low-budget kids' games these days, and Ninja Pig Studios' IQ Test seems like just another to heap on the pile... but looks can be deceiving. Beneath the simplistic exterior, IQ Test is a real mind-bender: a series of trick questions designed to get you to think outside

    Review Ufouria: The Saga

    A Ufouric experience

    Retro-style indie platformers are all the rage these days, so you'd be forgiven for thinking Sunsoft's Ufouria: The Saga is simply another in the long line of 2D NES-inspired modern titles on the eShop like Shovel Knight, 1001 Spikes, and Insanity's Blade. Released in 19

    Review Ice Cream Surfer

    Ice Cream Snorer

    Shoot 'em ups aren't really a popular genre these days, but there seems to be a bit of a resurgence on the downloadable front. Not long ago we received Gaiabreaker, and now here we have Ice Cream Surfer, a game which had an unsuccessful crowdfunding campaign, but nonetheless ended up being developed anyway. Upon launching the game...

  • Talking Point Deconstructing Nintendo's Retail Releases of Wii U eShop Titles

    Sensible cash-in or lack of focus?

    The recent announcement of a NES Remix physical disc compilation coming to North America was the latest in a minor trend for Nintendo, as it is showing an increased willingness to convert download titles into retail releases. It was also surprising, as NES Remix Pack will combine two $15 titles, so presumably...

    Review Wooden Sen'SeY

    More training required

    The Wii U eShop, unsurprisingly, isn't short of options when it comes to platformers, especially as it's a genre typically associated with Nintendo systems and their gamers. Wooden Sen'Sey, published by Neko Entertainment, aims to capitalise on that popularity and remind gamers of old-fashioned difficulty; these are noble yet...

    Has also been sent in to Nintendo for approval

    After the delay of the Wii U eShop title Teslagrad towards the end of 2013, fans of the Big N haven’t heard much about the upcoming puzzle-platformer except that its developer Rain Games is intent on delivering a quality product. Whilst Wii U owners were also teased with a lovely

  • News Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms

    Buy one version, get another free

    Since the Wii U's NNID (Nintendo Network ID) was added to the 3DS in late 2013 we've been yearning for eShop games, not to mention Virtual Console games, to offer cross-buy so you can play on both the Wii U and 3DS at no extra cost. This is par for the course on PlayStation systems, with Another World being one...
