The Wii U eShop is gradually building a collection of accessible, quickfire gaming fixes, particularly in North America. Some of these are ports of iOS and Android titles, and we can add Dolphin Up — from Rawkins Games — to that growing list.

The origins of this title appear to be in Dolphin Olympics and its sequel, which were originally released as free PC browser-based games. Dolphin Up is the smart device port from these titles, with the developer aiming for a September release — in North America at least — on Nintendo's system. The gameplay revolves around tricks and momentum, gradually building up to ever more fantastical leaps and combos; there also seem to be a variety of environments and hazards to take on.

Online leaderboards will be included, so this title is clearly trying to bring that "one more run" mentality to the Wii U eShop. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
