Rumor: Crashmo World was cancelled for Wii U

Posted on December 27, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Wii U eShop

Nintendo and Intelligent Systems released the successful 3DS eShop puzzler Pushmo before moving on to Crashmo one year later. Pushmo World was then made back in 2014 for Wii U. Apparently, the franchise was intended to have another entry on the console.

After finishing Pushmo World, Intelligent Systems pitched an idea to Nintendo that would give Wii U the same treatment as Crashmo had on 3DS. The working title was, unsurprisingly, Crashmo World. Development moved along in 2015 and progressed for a year, but Intelligent Systems started to shift resources over to Switch.

Crashmo World was actually planned as a 2017 title on Wii U. There was some discussion about potentially moving it over to Switch, though it was ultimately canned instead.

Here’s the full report from Liam Robertson:

    At this point, not surprised by the decision.

  • R.Z.

    Of course they did.
    But I don’t care, as long as Project Giant Robot releases on WiiU I’ll be happy.

    Krat…Maybe we will see it on Switch for sure, but i dont know they ditch older versions of Fire Emblem 6 and 10 before the real game. Ankoku no Miko says hi.

  • hi v3.0

    I loved Pushmo, one of the few eshop only titles I owned, but the last 10 levels or so is TOO HARD !!

    • I had to get my wife to help me on a few of those last levels. They take 20-45 minutes each to complete and you’ve got to keep track of what you’ve done because there’s some backtracking.

  • Addy

    It’s cancelled because the Wii U is dead.

  • AquaBat

    Since when do people still trust Liam Robertson?

    • theFooFighter

      Rumors are hit or miss but his stuff on cancelled games seems pretty legit.

  • Carlos

    I hope they make one for switch. I really like these games.

  • Abra

    yup i can once again say i’m glad to have jumped ship on to xbox one nintendo keep burning your fanbase keep doing it nintendo

  • Abra

    i’m telling you guys Zelda is not coming to Wii U

    • theFooFighter

      You can stop posting now

      • Abra

        ok sjw foo fighter did my post trigger you?

      • Abra

        people like you are always trying to shut people up
        all i wrote was “i’m telling you guys Zelda is not coming to Wii U”
        i’m not trolling im saying this because i really think they will do this. nintendo is trying to cut away from the Wii U as fast as they can.
        think about it if nintendo keeps a new big Zelda game only to NX that’s the only place to play that game it will drive sales of that system.
        plus i keep hearing that the Wii U version is really under performing a lot of frame rate drops.

        and because you disagree with me you are telling me to
        “You can stop posting now”

          All you do is complain. If you hate Nintendo so much why stick around

          • JasonBall

            Because he finds amusement in ticking us off and making fun of Nintendo fans and just generally being an @$$

          • Abra

            i do not hate nintendo i just point out things they could be doing better.

          • theFooFighter

            Every other comment from you is something about how great Xbox is

          • Abra

            really :O

      • JasonBall

        Ikr? He’s the troll of the month.

    • awng781

      It is.

      • Abra

        idk nintendo has been pushing this game back forever now

        • awng781

          Pushing back=/= Canceled, especially given how extensively the Wii U version of BOTW was shown off.

  • JasonBall

    I call BS. One of their best second parties is working on one of Nintendo’s best recent IPs, set to release in a year of no Wii U exclusives, and they just cancel it? With no switch version? Something isn’t right here.

  • New Year Wendigo

    Cancelling a potential Switch game seems like an odd move
