Runner2 patch notes

Posted on 4 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Podcast Stories, Wii U eShop | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Gaijin Games has prepared a patch for Runner2 – currently in the hands of Nintendo – that will fix lock-up issues. But that’s not all: the update will address other bugs and fixes as well.

Here’s the full lowdown:

  • At the start of the game, when it asks you if you want to log in, we’ve added some feedback so it doesn’t look like the game is hanging.
  • The leaderboards will only save your highest score, as expected, instead of your most recent score, which it does now.
  • If you lose your internet connection during play, we’ve allowed you to reconnect by going to the leaderboards menu.
  • We’ve fixed false score reporting for in-game Rewards.
  • We’ve fixed an issue with the level start mini-leaderboard telling you you’re offline when you’re actually online. It will populate this list with global scores if you don’t have any friends who have played the game yet.
  • We’ve fixed an issue in the settings menu that resets your settings every time you enter the menu.

Regarding the freezing problems players have been experiencing, Gaijin said that it “never experienced this issue on our devkits, during development, so it seems that this is an issue that only occurs on retail Wii Us. This makes it super gnarly to debug. It might not even be our bug. But we have tried to fix it.”


Nintendo of America has approved Chasing Aurora’s first update. Developer Broken Rules shared the news on Twitter yesterday:

In addition to the update, Broken Rules has been preparing a demo for Chasing Aurora. This should be out in the near future.


Zen Pinball 2 hasn’t arrived on the North American Wii U eShop despite having launched in Europe a month ago. We’re not quite sure what the holdup is, but developer Zen Studios wrote on Twitter yesterday that the game is still on the way.

Zen Pinball 2 was originally intended for release in December. It’s been pushed back a couple of times, but hopefully we’ll see it on the eShop soon.


Runner2 players on Wii U have been experiencing lock-up issues. Specifically, when attempting to exit the game, the console simply freezes.

Gaijin is thankfully aware of the problem. Better yet, the studio confirmed on Twitter that a patch is “already in Nintendo’s hands.”

Runner2 is available through the Wii U eShop for $15. It’s worth your money, folks!


Man, this game is looking more and more beautiful (and funny!) every time I see it! Glad it’s probably hitting the Wii U at some point.

Developer of the upcoming Cloudberry Kingdom on Wii U “Pwnee Studios” told Aussie Gamer the other day that Nintendo has been great to work with relating to the development and publishing of their game on the Wii U eShop, and they were “pumped” when they got the chance to bring the game to Nintendo fans.

Nintendo has been great to work with so far! We were raised playing the NES and SNES, so when we got the chance to develop our game for the Wii U, we were pumped! We really haven’t had many issues with Nintendo, and they have been very helpful whenever we have had a problem.

In terms of getting the game onto the eShop, it has gone pretty smoothly. We presented the game to Nintendo, they liked it, and they said we should go onto the eShop. All we had to do was agree!

– Pwnee Studios’ TJ Lutz

One of the more interesting bits of information to come from this is how simple it was to get Nintendo to let them publish the game on the eShop! They simply show off their game (probably to some Nintendo representatives), and the Big N makes the decision themselves based on how cool the game is. I find that to be quite a refreshingly simple way to get a game put out!

Runner2 is an absolutely lovely game. We suggest that you grab it from the Wii U eShop when you have the chance. There is just one problem with Runner 2’s release: lock-up issues.

Numerous users have noted that Runner2 causes the Wii U to freeze and lock-up when exiting the game. This doesn’t appear to be isolated, unfortunately.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.
