Nintendo Everything: Wii U eShop
Varia Games has been working hard on ReVeN – a new 2D shooter/platformer for a few platforms including Wii U. The indie developer has also been creating XBridge. This was originally planned as a mini-game set in ReVeN’s universe as a means to hold fans over until the main game launched in 2016. However, it’s now being made into a standalone title.
XBridge will feature a number of elements like Conquest mode (join the I.S.T.O or E.G.R Faction and fight to destroy the enemy armada), arcade mode, and story mode. There’s also a level editor, 2-player co-op, and more.
XBridge is targeted for Q1 2015. Like ReVeN, it will be released on Wii U.
The latest Wii U file size is for Chariot, which should be launching in Europe early next month. You’ll need to reserve 493 MB for the download. Note that the size may vary slightly by region.
The European Wii U eShop appears to have confirmed two new releases for January 8. First up is Chariot, which will be priced at €14.99. Underground is also expected on the same day for €19.99.
Curve Studios released a patch for Stealth Inc 2. It’s on the minor side of things, as the update simply addresses an issue with hats.
Curve Studios shared Stealth Inc 2’s patch news on Twitter earlier today:
We've just released a patch for Stealth 2 which fixes an issue with the hats. Go forth and don or un-don whatever headwear you wish!

Natsume confirmed on Twitter that the fast-paced NES sidescroller Shadow of the Ninja will release on the US 3DS and Wii U Virtual Console in early 2015. Known in Europe as “Blue Shadow”, the game is already available on the Wii Virtual Console, but it’ll be nice to have it on the other two platforms. No, the in-game graphics don’t look anything like the box art pictured above.
Having auto-play issues per usual, so you can find the video after the break.
