    "A modern-era fairytale in a playable form"

    Frozenbyte is a developer that's likely to have earned credit from a lot of Wii U gamers for its release of Trine 2: Director's Cut, with a subsequent — albeit delayed — update improving the graphics while adding voice chat and Pro Controller support. As a developer well known to gamers across...

  • News Wind Waker Lookalike A Hat In Time Could Be Coming To The Wii U

    Should be an easy Cel

    Indie title A Hat In Time could be coming to the Wii U, according to its developer Jonas Kærlev, also known as Mecha the Slag. The game is a homage to the N64 adventures of old, such as Donkey Kong 64 and Conker's Bad Fur Day.

  • News Zen Studios Announces New Star Wars Pinball DLC

    The force is strong with Wii U

    Zen Studios has announced on its blog that it will be bringing new Star Wars themed pinball tables as DLC for Xbox Live Arcade's Pinball FX2 and PSN's Zen Pinball 2. There was no mention of Wii U, but fortunately it seems it will be coming to Nintendo's eShop after all as DLC for Zen Pinball 2. As you would expect,...

  • News Wii U To Get An "Exclusive" Rayman Legends Demo Soon

    Ubisoft makes a peace offering to Wii U owners

    As you may have heard, Rayman Legends is no longer a Wii U exclusive and has now been pushed back to the faraway land of September. Ubisoft has confirmed that the Wii U version of the game is finished, but has insisted it will be releasing it with the other versions of the game rather than putting it on...

  • News Scribblenauts Unlimited Was Briefly Available On The European Wii U eShop

    And it's been downloaded

    Earlier this week we told you about the delay to the European release of Scribblenauts Unlimited on Wii U and 3DS, due to "changes" that needed to be made — no real details were given. It appears as if someone forgot to tell the team that manages content on the Wii U eShop, as it made a brief appearance on the platform;...

  • Nintendo Download 7th February 2013 (North America)

    Ken is raging, the Blue Bomber returns, concentration testing and more

    Nintendo has confirmed what download delights are coming to North America this week, and it's certainly a diverse range. We have a download-only retail game on Wii U — if you can tolerate the term — some retro goodness and a long-awaited demo joining a major retail release on...

  • Developer Interview WaterMelon On Kickstarter, Nintendo And Bringing Pier Solar To The Wii U

    "Working with Nintendo is much easier than one would think"

    We reported last year that WaterMelon's 16-bit RPG Pier Solar would be gracing the Wii U in the near future, having secured funding for a HD remake via Kickstarter. The team is busy working on the HD version as we speak, so we thought it would be a good time to get in touch and talk...

  • News Wii Street U App Finds Its Way to Wii U eShop in Japan

    Nosiness from the comfort of the living room

    Last year Satoru Iwata confirmed that the Google Maps Street View functionality would be coming to Wii U, an app that makes sense given the GamePad's screen and motion sensors. It may not be a big hit or a system seller, but this potentially fun app — called Wii Street U — has now arrived in Japan...

  • News Mutant Mudds Deluxe Suffers A Delay

    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.

The "Deluxe" version of the game features all of the levels and DLC from the 3DS version, and throws in 20 new...

  • News This Gruesome Plague-Spreading Strategy Title Could Be Infecting The Wii U

    Team made up of former Media Molecule, Lionhead and Criterion developers is open to the idea

    Death Inc. is a strategy title with a difference - instead of fighting for the forces of good, you take on the role of the Grim Reaper as he seeks to spread the bubonic plague in 1660's England and enhance his own grisly reputation. The game is up on...

    Review Zen Pinball 2

    Not always a zen experience

    Zen Pinball 2 is a title that's seen its Wii U eShop release delayed from an original December target, as a result of its free download/paid DLC model requiring extra attention for publication. While the actual pinball is polished, fun and generally first-class, the infrastructure behind it is the exact opposite. With 26...

  • News Two Tribes Explains Toki Tori 2 Delay

    All for a greater good

    Originally planned to accompany the launch of the system, pushed back to 20th December and now with a release date to be confirmed, the arrival of Toki Tori 2 on the Wii U eShop has been a protracted business. With plans for a larger game world and the inclusion of a level creation tool, the delay perhaps isn't a surprise, but...

  • News Full Mojo Rampage Could Bring Voodoo to Wii U

    From the developers of Nyxquest: Kindred Spirits

    For those with better memories and an enthusiasm for WiiWare, NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits may be a title that is regarded with some fondness. A sedate puzzle platformer that made natural use of the Wii Remote, it had such a positive impact on us that we awarded it an impressive 9/10 in our NyxQuest...
