Costume Quest2

When Double Fine confirmed that it was bringing Costume Quest 2 to the Wii U, it wasn't surprising that a number of fans were rather pleased. The original gained serious popularity thanks to its cute visuals and solid adventure RPG gameplay, so the promise of a sequel that'll improve on that release is certainly tempting.

Of course, the trick-or-treat premise suits Halloween rather well, so its absence from today's European Nintendo Download news concerned some that were looking forward to the release. We've been in touch with Nintendo UK to clarify and, thankfully, it's been confirmed that it'll still arrive this week; panic for Costume Quest fans is averted, then, while it should hopefully be all set for North America, too.

If you're not sure what this is all about, the following description and recent (Sony) trailer should help:

You still play as twins Reynold and Wren, although this time around you don’t need to choose between the two. The current story revolves around a time travelling dentist named Kronoculus, whose goal is to rid the world of candy. Of course, your lovers of trick-or-treating will stop at nothing to but a wrench in the dentist’s time-altering plans.
