Battle Princess Madelyn set for Switch and Wii U
Posted on 1 day ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 8 Comments | 0 Likes
Casual Bit Games has been working on Battle Princess Madelyn for quite some time. The action-adventure platformer still has a few months of development to go, but the upcoming title – inspired by the likes of Ghouls N’ Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon’s Trap – is now confirmed for Switch and Wii U.
Battle Princess Madelyn has ten levels, comprised of five stages each (and “some that are cunningly hidden). It includes replayable areas, “with many to unlock as each surprise heralds new challenges – as well as weapons and enemies.” All types of players can enjoy the game thanks to self-adjusting difficulty.
Regarding presentation, a professional children’s author is on board with hand drawn artwork bringing the game to life. John McCarthy of Nintendo Quest fame will be providing orchestrated audio while a retro style FM/PCM arcade style soundtrack will be present thanks to Gryzor87.
See what Battle Princess Madelyn is all about in the video below. The game should be finished by late 2017.

Placards, which we originally heard about over two years ago, has finally been dated for the Wii U eShop. At least in North America, it’s set to arrive on February 23 – this Thursday.
Here’s an overview of the game:
Placards is a unique single-player puzzle experience that requires players to think both visually and strategically. Rearrange pixels on the screen by rotating or swapping to solve Placard puzzles. That Placard too big to solve in one go? Solve a piece at a time to get closer to that final Placard picture. From simple shapes to space ships to a fire breathing dragon, there are over 100 puzzles to keep you occupied for hours. So grab that cup of coffee, sit down on that comfy couch, and solve a few Placards today.
Single player play.
Rotate and swap pixels to solve Placard puzzles.
Zoom to compare your Placard puzzle against the final picture.
Progress saved automatically as you play (exit a Placard puzzle and come back later).
Try to solve each Placard puzzle in as few moves as possible.
176 Placard puzzles at launch (across 4 books or themes).
Includes several large, multi-piece puzzles.
Color Blind Mode (optimizes puzzle colors for colorblindness).
Relax Mode (turns on ambient background sound).”
Placards will cost $1.99.

Soul Saga is still coming to Wii U
Posted on 3 days ago by Fernando in News, Wii U eShop | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
Back in 2013, developer Disastercake started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new 3D JRPG-inspired videogame called Soul Saga. It quickly reached the goal to have the game ported to Wii U, but we didn’t hear of it again until now.
Disastercake posted a comment on the Kickstarter page announcing that Soul Saga is still coming to Wii U and that they currently have no plans on porting the game to Switch.
“A lot of fans are asking me to port Soul Saga to the Switch. I’m still planning to port Soul Saga to WiiU (after PC version is complete), but unfortunately I don’t have any further information on the Switch right now. If anything evolves on either of those fronts I’ll be sure to make an update covering it. =)”
Unlike other cases, Soul Saga won’t change platforms and will still arrive on the Wii U eShop in the future, regardless of the short lifespan remaining in the Nintendo platform.
