Abyss Wii U 5

Earlier this year we brought you the news that Abyss was confirmed for the Wii U eShop, a new updated version of the DSiWare title. Priced at $1.99 and promising new content, it immediately struck us as a potentially attractive offering on the home console, especially as one of our few complaints in our original 7/10 score was of a lack of depth (we'll keep making that rubbish joke, please understand).

The new title does include 20 new missions and two player multiplayer to join the original content, and EnjoyUp Games has now confirmed that North American gamers will be able to dive in on 1st May — no date has been given for Europe as yet.

The trailer below shows this new version in action, including off-TV play and competitive multiplayer that has one focused on the GamePad screen and the other on the TV. Is this a budget title worth the plunge? We'll know soon enough.
