50+ indie games cancelled and still on for Wii U, in limbo, moved to Switch
Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Features, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 20 Comments | 0 Likes
Wii U is in an interesting position right now. Although Switch is the hot new thing, Nintendo’s older console still exists, and games continue to come out for the old console each week via the eShop. Just a couple of days ago for example, The Girl and the Robot finally hit Wii U after a nearly four-year wait.
Throughout Wii U’s lifespan, many indie games were announced for the platform. Many came out, but plenty never actually made it to the console. Since Wii U is starting to wind down at this point, we’ve attempted to investigate as many noteworthy, unreleased indie titles as possible to see if they’re still planned.
Our full findings are included below. Note that we’ve left out certain games that were reconfirmed for Wii U within the past few months, such as Hive Jump, Soul Saga, and Lobodestroyo.

Nefarious dev working through “technical hurdles” on Wii U
Posted on 3 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
We heard earlier this year that Nefarious could move from Wii U to Switch. The Wii U version still appears to be happening, based on comments from creator Josh Hano.
Hano confirmed to 4colorrebellion that the team hasn’t ceased its work on Nintendo’s older console. Right now, the team is trying to solve some “technical hurdles,” but it is running “on a basic level” at least.
“We haven’t stopped working on it! We are experiencing some technical hurdles, but we did manage to get it playing on a basic level. We still have a lot of things we need to do to make it work, but our initial once-over was very promising.”

Wii U was Teslagrad’s most profitable platform
Posted on 6 days ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
Teslagrad ended up on a whole bunch of platforms. But in the end, it turns out that it was most profitable on Wii U.
Speaking about why Teslagrad did so well on Wii U, Rain Games CEO Peter Wingaard Meldahl told Gamasutra:
“There was not many titles released for [the Wii U], comparatively. Indie titles actually got a good visibility on the platform.”
Meldahl noted that Teslagrad sat in each of the top two slots on Nintendo’s storefront for a couple weeks. With other systems, this would never have happened.
