Konami is cranking out a new game for the Wii U Virtual Console. In North America, Bonk’s Revenge will be out tomorrow. It was originally made for the TurboGrafx-16.
Nintendo’s listing has the following overview:
“Taking place in the Monster Kingdom, Bonk the Caveman makes his way toward King Drool III. Bonk’s Revenge is a side-scrolling action game in which you Jump and “Bonk” (headbutt) your enemies while you make your way to the goal at the end of each stage. Double, even triple, your attack power by eating the meat that appears in a stage. There are 8 different hidden bonus stages, and the Dinosaur Train that appears after you defeat a boss will change depending on how many Smileys you’ve collected. With new actions such as the Triangle Jump and the ability to climb trees, as well as 7 variety–packed stages, Bonk’s Revenge will keep you playing over and over.”
Bonk’s Revenge will be priced at $5.99.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment cheat code adds Mega Man X wall jumping
Posted on 2 weeks ago by Zack in 3DS eShop, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Yacht Club Games recently revealed a cheat code for Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment changes the way Specter Knight wall jumps to be more in line with the wall jumping from Mega Man X. There are two versions of the cheat, both of which are identical except for the color palette swap that comes with the changed wall jump mechanics. One will turn Specter Knight blue, and the other will change him to red, both of which are likely homages to X and Zero from Mega Man X.
You can find Yacht Club’s Twitter posts, in which they reveal the cheat code, below. For those of you eager to relive the glory days of Mega Man X, the cheat codes are as follows:
- For the blue palette, enter C&MVRKHNT when making a profile.
- For the red palette, enter S&CBHR when making a profile.
Want to climb and cling to walls as Specter Knight… but red is more your style? Use this cheat instead!

World to the West’s Wii U version gets delayed by a few weeks
Posted on 3 weeks ago by Fernando in News, Wii U eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Teslagrad developer Rain Games have posted an update about the state of World to the West for Wii U. Apparently, they’ve been getting some issues with Nintendo’s console, but now they have found a way to optimize the game’s performance.
Sadly, this means that World to the West will get delayed. In their announcement, Rain Games have stated that they do not want to release a game that later on will need a patch to fix a less polished state.
They reassure possible buyers that World to the West will definitely come to Wii U, but we don’t have a possible date yet.
World to the West will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC next week. Hopefully it won’t be long before we hear about the Wii U version release.
