Dreadlocks shared some good news and bad news about the Wii U version of Dex via a Kickstarter update.

First, the studio said that it temporarily halted development on Wii U due to reassigning “human resources to more urgent tasks.” However, work on this edition will resume at the start of May. Additionally, Dex is still coming to Wii U before the end of 2017.

Dreadlocks wrote on Kickstarter:

“The development of WiiU version has stopped for a while because we had to re-assign our human resources to more urgent tasks. But it’s only temporary and works on WiiU will continue on beginning of May. We’re still aiming to release it this year.”

Pikmin ended up on the North American Wii U eShop several months ago. Now the game’s sequel is nearly here as well.

According to a listing on Nintendo’s website, Pikmin 2 will be released tomorrow in North America. To clarify: this is the New Play Control! version as opposed to the original GameCube game.

Here’s an overview from Nintendo’s site:

“Captain Olimar and his sidekick, Louie, travel to a strange alien world on a mission to pay an employer’s debt. Command squads of Pikmin to help locate valuable treasures, explore mysterious environments, and battle pesky enemies along the way. Strategy is key when choosing which Pikmin to deploy for any given task.”

Pikmin 2 will cost $19.99 on the Wii U eShop.

A bunch of new Wii U Virtual Console games showed up in Japan today. In addition to Langrisser: Hikari no Matsuei and Necromancer, which we heard about last week, four more are out now: Fire Fighting Idol, Janshi Suchie-Pai, City Connection, and Formation Z. Trailers for all of these games are below.

When we last heard about The Girl and the Robot, is was slated to end up on Wii U by the end of 2016. That didn’t happen, but this version of the game hasn’t been cancelled. It’s been submitted to Nintendo, so it shouldn’t be too long before The Girl and the Robot is published on the eShop.

As for Switch, a release on the new console might be in the cards. Flying Carpets Games wrote on Twitter that the team is “exploring” the platform.

Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes is due out on the North American and European Wii U eShops this Thursday. The video below provides an early look at the game with a half hour of footage.

The Wii U Virtual Console has been on a roll as of late with TurboGrafx-16 games. More appear to be on the way, judging by new classifications.

World Sports Competition, Battle Lode Runner, Super Star Soldier have all been rated by the ESRB. We don’t have release dates, but there’s a good chance that all three will be rolled out over the next few weeks.

When Harvest Moon 64 originally came out many years ago, it came with a bit of a noticeable spelling mistake. On the title screen, Natsume’s name was written as “Natume”.

The error has been back in the news due to the recent release of Harvest Moon 64 on the Wii U Virtual Console. In its latest “State of the Farm” update, Natsume thought it would make sense to explain why it happened in the first place.

Natsume wrote:

“With the recent release of Harvest Moon 64 on the Wii U Virtual Console in both North America and Europe, let’s answer that one important question everyone has been talking about for 17 years: What’s up with the spelling of ‘Natume’ on the title screen in Harvest Moon 64?!

Cypronia made the Minecraft-esque Cube Life: Island Survival for Wii U a couple of years ago, and even intends to bring it to Switch at some point. In the meantime though, we’re getting a completely different game on Wii U this week – Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes. The eShop lists it for March 30 in North America.

Unlike the open-world nature of Island Survival, Pixel Action Heroes is more a shooter. You’ll take on the role of “an iconic action hero from the 80s in a fully destructible block-building world.” It’s possible to create your own levels, share them with others, and receive feedback.

Here’s a rundown of features:

Wipeout zombie hordes, but beware of the bosses!
Practice your skills and eliminate Bots
Local Multiplayer (in many cool game modes)
Ragdoll physics
Fully destructible maps (destroy the level with tools, guns, explosives)
Map editor (create your own maps)
Skin editor (customize your hero)
Fluid and smooth gameplay (30+ FPS)
Large variety of foes and challenging bosses
Build your own maps and share with other players
Large selection of firearms based on real life weapons

You can get a look at Cube Life: Pixel Action Heroes in the gallery below.
