In July, Cragworks brought BLOC to the Wii U eShop. The indie developer is now preparing its next release for 2017 which goes by the name Reversi 32.

Cragworks put up a new Miiverse post about its upcoming project a few hours ago. It contains a brief look at a single-player mode in which you play against Bigley in the board game, Reversi. Players have black tiles while Bigley uses white tiles.

Here’s the full Miiverse post:


Ratalaika Games is wrapping up updates for two of its previous eShop releases. Defend your Crypt and Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition will be getting patches in early 2017.

Defend your Crypt’s update sounds fairly substantial. New maps will be added, and tweaks will be implemented. The update should be submitted to lot check very soon.

As for Blasting Agent, we know that Russian will be included as a supported language. It’ll be submitted in early January, and Ratalaika is also working on a Japanese version of the game.


We recently heard that Spheroids will be out on the North American Wii U eShop next week. Now the same can be said for Europe. In both North America and Europe, Spheroids is slated for January 5.

Here’s a look at the European eShop listing:

And the trailer for those who missed it:


There’s now some footage of Mario Kart 64 for the Wii U Virtual Console to watch on YouTube, thanks to the guys at GameXplain. You can watch the video below.

This week’s North American Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

Wii U Virtual Console

Mario Kart 64 – $9.99

New 3DS Virtual Console

Castlevania Dracula X – $7.99

It’s been a long wait, but Mario Kart 64 is finally making its way to the North American Wii U eShop this week. Nintendo’s website has it listed for tomorrow.

Here’s a brief overview:

“Put the pedal to the metal in this worthy successor to the Super NES classic, Super Mario Kart. With improved courses and a revolutionary head-to-head four-player mode, Mario Kart 64 is sure to win the heart of any race-driving fan. The game includes 20 different courses filled with dips, valleys, jumps, tunnels and bridges. Smooth, precise control will bring players back time and time again for freewheeling fun.”

Europe and Japan have both had Mario Kart 64 on Wii U for about a year. To say that this release was due in North America would be understatement.


Nintendo and Intelligent Systems released the successful 3DS eShop puzzler Pushmo before moving on to Crashmo one year later. Pushmo World was then made back in 2014 for Wii U. Apparently, the franchise was intended to have another entry on the console.

After finishing Pushmo World, Intelligent Systems pitched an idea to Nintendo that would give Wii U the same treatment as Crashmo had on 3DS. The working title was, unsurprisingly, Crashmo World. Development moved along in 2015 and progressed for a year, but Intelligent Systems started to shift resources over to Switch.

Crashmo World was actually planned as a 2017 title on Wii U. There was some discussion about potentially moving it over to Switch, though it was ultimately canned instead.

Here’s the full report from Liam Robertson:
