Olympia Rising

For those of you that live in North America, you may remember that Olympia Rising released in Europe a couple months ago. The retro 2D action platformer calls Kid Icarus to mind with its greek mythology inspired themes and its colorful visuals. We rather liked it in our review, praising the story and visuals, but criticising some creaky gameplay. At the time, it wasn't yet known when the game would be made available to North American fans, but that's fortunately been cleared up now.

PlayEveryWare recently revealed that the game will be landing on the Wii U eShop in the region on 9th June. No price has been given yet, but it's nice to see that North Americans can soon join in the fun.
