Nintendo Everything: Wii U
Ubisoft talks Watch Dogs Wii U – reasons for delay, may ship this year, wants to make full use of Wii U
Ubisoft senior producer Dominic Guay has opened up about Watch Dogs’ lengthy delay on Wii U.
The publisher announced plans today to ship the title across all platforms on May 27 – except for Nintendo’s hardware. Guay couldn’t offer up an exact date as to when Watch Dogs will be hitting Wii U, but said an arrival later this year is a “possibility.”
Guay told Polygon:
“Yeah it’s still alive. We still haven’t defined a ship date for it, though. So it’s on hold, to a certain extent for shipping.”
“We don’t have a specific ship date for it yet so it’s considered within the year. So we’re going to look at that and we’re going to let people know as soon as we figure out an exact date for it.”
A new Shaq-Fu game is finally happening, and it could come to Wii U and 3DS.
Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn is now live on Indiegogo, accessible here. Big Deez Productions is working on the project. The team’s staff have experience contributing to games such as Halo, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Alan Wake, Spec Ops: The Line, Battlefield, Killzone, Max Payne, Duke Nukem, and more.
Update 2: Added in official embed below.
Update: Ubisoft has already taken the video down, though you can watch it here. We’ll add in an official embed once it’s available.

6th March 2014 – With engines revving and gravity-defying courses awaiting, the Mushroom Kingdom’s finest racers are set to line up on the starting grid on 30th May 2014 when Mario Kart 8 launches on Wii U. But in the meantime, whether or not you know your Blooper from your Bullet Bill, Nintendo has today announced two options to get your karting skills up to speed in the form of the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle and a Super Mario Kart promotion coming to Nintendo eShop for Wii U on 27th March 2014.
Mario Kart fans who have ever unleashed a Spiny Shell item or been on the wrong side of one will know of their capacity to make or break a race, therefore as a memento of times both good and not so good, the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle will come complete with a Spiny Shell Collector’s Item alongside a physical copy of Mario Kart 8, with the Spiny Shell proudly perched atop a black and transparent frame. Packaged together as a uniquely designed bundle, the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition launches on 30th May 2014 and is ready for pre-order now from the Nintendo UK Online Store and selected retailers, available while stocks last. Customers in the UK & Ireland who have already pre-ordered the standalone copy of Mario Kart 8 will have the opportunity to upgrade pending availability. One of the most devastating items found in-game, expect to see the Spiny Shell back in its natural environment knocking champion racers off the podium when the item appears in the Mario Kart franchise once more from 30th May 2014.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds both offer Hero modes. In the former title, it’s accessible right away. But in A Link Between Worlds, players must complete the game before tackling the more difficult mode.
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma discussed why this is so while speaking with ONM. In the magazine’s latest issue, he explained that some gamers may have already played Wind Waker on GameCube, but since A Link Between Worlds is brand new, the team “felt that it was more suitable to have the players first enjoy the game at an appropriate difficulty level and then let them try a harder challenge.”
