Kiki's Koi Koi

This year will mark the 125th anniversary of Nintendo as a company and its humble beginnings as a Hanafuda card maker. It seems fitting then that developer How Seven! – previously known as Cobalt Ceiling Games – has recently announced that it’ll be bringing Kiki’s Koi Koi to the Wii U’s eShop. The title, which was originally released in 2011 on iOS devices, is based on Japan’s popular Hanafuda card game Koi-Koi.

From the developer:

We’ve been mentioning it here and there, but it’s time to finally announce it for real: Kiki’s Koi-Koi is heading to the Wii U eShop. Launching later this year, Kiki will be bringing her trademark charm to living rooms everywhere. For new players, she’ll walk you through this easy-to-learn game and have you playing like the pros in no time. For the Kiki fans out there already, you’ll get the smooth experience you’ve come to know… but now, on the big screen.

How Seven! has confirmed that the Wii U version of Kiki’s Koi-Koi is set to feature “a fresh coat of paint” as well as brand new play modes, with more details to be shared in the coming weeks.

Below is the trailer for the iOS version of the game:
