Dreii made its debut on PC and mobile platforms earlier this week. It’s still targeted for consoles, with a Wii U launch taking place “soon” according to designer Christian Etter. For now, check out the latest trailer below.

Word Puzzles by POWGI hit the European eShops last week. In North America, the game will be available on Wii U and 3DS this coming week: February 11. It’s cross-buy, so if you purchase one version, you’re entitled to the other one for free.

Several new games out came out this week on the Wii U and 3DS eShops. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a peak at the gallery below.

Gunscape is starting to make its way to consoles, and that means players are starting to upload a ton of footage. You’ll find 28 minutes of gameplay below.

Thanks to Mike for the tip.

Buddy & Me, a 2D platformer featuring Metroid Prime developer Jason Behr as creative director, started out as a Kickstarter project back in 2013. It launched on mobile platforms a little bit later, and has been ported to a number of mobile platforms over the past couple of years.

Buddy & Me now appears to be setting its sights on Wii U. On Kickstarter, the team teased the following:

“So what’s next?

With all the effort put into transitioning into Unity, we’re anxious to take advantage of Unity’s cross-platform support. While we don’t quite have the budget to retroactively update all our old platforms’ builds, we do still want to do something very special. In next week’s update, I’ll share about what we’re working on now, plus some hints about other future project ideas.

I hate to tease, but, I wonder what’s in the box Buddy got for the holidays? Hint: Wii haven’t forgotten our promises.”

For Buddy & Me’s Kickstarter, a Wii U version was actually a stretch goal. It fell around $13,000 shy of that target, though it now seems as though an eShop release could be happening.


Shantae: Risky’s Revenge originally landed on DSiWare back in 2010. It’s been on several platforms since then, and WayForward is now gearing up to bring it to the Wii U eShop.

The studio wrote in a Kickstarter update for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero today:

“Breaking news today for Shantae fans! Shantae: Risky’s Revenge Director’s Cut is moving into submissions at Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe. Now Wii U owners will be able to play the most popular Shantae game on the planet, with all of those fancy bonus features like the new Warp System, improved balancing, HD illustrations, and the infamous Magic Mode Costume!”

In other news, here’s a look at Tuki, an enemy in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero designed by a fan:


“This is it! The final Backer Enemy to appear in Half-Genie Hero! Say hello to Tuki, the sneaky, snakey seller of magical secrets by Backer Matt B! Matt B worked with our Matt B on several designs, and eventually landed on this devious shop keeper rather than a traditional combat enemy. Tuki will appear at various points throughout the game to offer the player new dances in exchange for old ones. What could go wrong? Traditional enemy? – No. Interesting choice? Abso-slither-lutely!””

Thanks to Andrew for the tip.
