Wii U eShop

A brand new collaboration pack has been announced for Minecraft. Adventure Time is coming to all console versions of the game, which should include Switch and Wii U.

Here’s a trailer:

The Adventure Time DLC will be out “soon” for all versions of Minecraft.

The Girl and the Robot finally graces Wii U this week. On Thursday, the game launches in North America. Note that the eShop download is 1872MB.


AckkStudios has long been working on a couple of projects for Wii U. The first, YIIK, is starting to near the end of development and is also now on the way to Switch. The other is Chromophore: The Two Brothers Director’s Cut.

In February, AckkStudios said that Chromophore: The Two Brothers Director’s Cut is still happening. Nothing has changed since then, as the game is in the pipeline. It will receive the studio’s full attention once YIIK is fully complete. Of course, it remains to be seen where it’ll end up – likely Switch at the very least.


If you’re looking for a free game on Wii U, you may want to give Humanitarian Helicopter a look. It’s currently showing as free on the North American eShop. You can claim it from Nintendo’s website here.

Note that you won’t get any Gold Points on My Nintendo with this one, even though it was originally $10. Nintendo may have cleared up the “glitch” where points were being given out when games were being made available for free.

Thanks to Vinicius for the tip.

World to the West, the next game from Teslagrad developer Rain Games, is coming to Wii U soon and potentially Switch in the future. A video with another 18 minutes of footage can be found below.

The Girl and the Robot, first announced for Wii U in 2013, is finally landing on the eShop next week. Nintendo’s website lists it for May 25 in North America. The game will set you back $9.99.

Here’s an overview of The Girl and the Robot:

“The Girl and the Robot is a unique third person action/adventure game set in a fairy tale world. You take on the role of a young girl trying to escape from a castle ruled by an evil queen. On her way, she meets a mysterious robot that can be controlled remotely and together they encounter many challenges that test the strength of their new found friendship. This game is the first act of the fairy tale.”

And some Wii U screenshots:

Flying Carpets Games said in March that the team was “exploring” a Switch version of The Girl and the Robot. Nothing is set in stone just yet, however.


A few new games out came out this week on the Wii U and 3DS eShops. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a look at the gallery below.
