Retro City Rampage WiiWare sales still have a ways to go before Vblank can earn revenue

Vblank Entertainment shared a sales update on Retro City Rampage’s WiiWare version yesterday while also asking fans for their support.

Unlike the eShop, Nintendo implemented much stricter rules on the Wii Shop Channel. These harsh guidelines extend to payments for developers. According to Vblank, Retro City Rampage is still 750 units away in North America (850 units in Europe) from reaching the threshold needed for the studio to receive revenue from the WiiWare version. WiiWare titles need to hit a certain number of sales in their first two years before developers are compensated, and at this rate, Vblank believes this will be tough to accomplish with Retro City Rampage.

Vblank wrote on Facebook:

Thanks to Ryan M for the tip.

A few years ago, Hudson was working on Bonk: Brink of Extinction for WiiWare, XBLA and PSN. The game was sadly cancelled even though it was pretty much done.

While Bonk: Brink of Extinction won’t ever see the light of day, YouTube user “Bonk Brink” has uploaded gameplay online. The footage, obtained through an “anonymous source,” can be found above.

MonkeyPaw Games is removing BurgerTime World Tour from all digital store fronts – including WiiWare. Licensing agreements have expired, so MonkeyPaw is being forced to take the game down.

BurgerTime World Tour will now be available for the sale price of $4.99 until April 30. Once this day passes, the title will be gone for good.

Those who purchase BurgerTime World Tour prior to its removal will be able to access the game in the future.
