Metroid Prime Trilogy is launching today in North America and Europe as the next Wii download for Wii U. Note that the file size weighs in at 7705MB. Get those hard drives ready!
Jumpy Cat will no longer be coming to the eShop. Ninja Pig Studios, the game’s publisher, has confirmed that there are no longer plans to publish the game.
Ninja Pig Studios’ Jordan Schuetz wrote on Twitter last week:
@photonstorm thanks for the advice. The game won't be published so it's irrelevant, but thanks for the heads up. Didn't know about that.
