The Wii U version of Cosmochoria is facing some troubles

The Wii U port of the Kickstarted space shooter Cosmochoria is being held up by a number of issues, which developer Nate Schmold elaborates on in a recent Kickstarter update. The problems largely involve the difficulties in porting the game from Construct 2 to Nintendo Web Framework and poor performance as a result. This isn’t the first time a Wii U developer has had these problems – the development of Team Notion’s Super Ubie Island was also delayed by the need to rebuild the game in Unity.

The Wii U version of Cosmochoria was tentatively slated for an early 2015 release, but as Schmold will need to re-code the game in another engine this will likely be pushed back – if this version is even released at all. Schmold promised Kickstarter backers that those requesting the Wii U version will have their pledges refunded if the game is cancelled and left it to them to determine its fate.

Another look at Retro City Rampage’s sales

Vblank Entertainment added a new post to its site today that examines the sales of Retro City Rampage.

While Wii makes up a tiny fraction of the game’s sales, the 3DS version appears to have done quite well. Vblank says this edition “has the healthiest tail of all platforms.” Retro City Rampage continues to move units on 3DS despite never having received a price drop.

Here are Vblank’s full comments about the title’s sales on 3DS:

Nintendo 3DS has the healthiest tail of all platforms. Released nearly 10 months ago, it has never been discounted and still boasts a strong weekly tail. It was a great fit for the platform and market and received great promotion from Nintendo at launch. RCR released on 3DS 15 months later, but had it been released simultaneously with the others it’s possible that it could be the best selling out of all eight platforms. Again, this would vary widely on the type of game, but RCR was a perfect match for 3DS.

Hackers flood Pokemon GTS with profanely-named Pokemon

Pokemon games block players from naming their creatures anything offensive under most circumstances. But unfortunately, hackers have circumvented these restrictions and are now flooding the Pokemon Global Trade Station with profanely-named Pokemon.

Fans are trying to improve the situation by doing things like grabbing the poorly-named Pokemon from the GTS, renaming them, and redistributing them online – which requires its own hacking methods ironically enough. Hopefully official action will be taken in the near future.
