Headup Games is working with Nicalis to bring The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to Europe before the end of Q2. When the announcement was made, it was also suggested that the two sides would partner on future releases on well.

Nicalis officially said on Twitter this week that Headup Games will be handling Cave Story+ in Europe. No word on a release date as of now, but the confirmation is nice to have in any case.


Headup Games is teaming up with Nicalis to bring The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ to Europe and Australia, the company announced today. A release is planned for Q2 2017. Pricing will be set at €39.99.

It was also suggested that Headup and Nicalis will be working together again in the future. That may mean games like Cave Story+ and Redout will reach PAL regions as well.


Headup Games has announced its first title for Switch. Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo Edition – The Card Warriors will be coming to the eShop after the initial launch.

As would expect, Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo Edition – The Card Warriors primarily consists of blackjack gameplay. It features a roster of twelve characters, ten storylines, and online matches. A trailer and overview of the premise can be found below.

“Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo edition introduces a roster of 12 very different characters all competing to become the greatest Blackjack player of all time.

Following an invitation by the owner of the largest Casino in Las Vegas and Godfather of the local most influential crime family, each character will face the other participants in a face off game of cards. Only the best of them will fly to Vegas to challenge the Godfather himself in a final match, not knowing that the tournament itself is nothing more than a charade to hide a ruthless master plan to defeat the competing clan family…”

Super Blackjack Battle 2 Turbo Edition – The Card Warriors initially comes out in March. The mobile version will be after that, and then Headup Games will begin to publish it on consoles at some point.

Two new games have received release dates on the European eShop.

On 3DS, Choice Provisions will be publishing Shift DX towards the start of January. The game will be ready on January 12 for €4.99.

Also, on Wii U, we have Toby: The Secret Mine – which we just heard about yesterday. It’s set for January 19 with a €9.99 price point.

We’ve included the eShop listings for both titles below.


Headup Games has announced plans to bring Toby: The Secret Mine to Wii U, a puzzle-platformer inspired by Limbo and Badland. Players can expect various puzzles, dangerous and challenging traps and enemies, and “beautifully handcrafted environments.

Here’s a rundown of the game’s premise:

“A peaceful way of life in a small village in the mountains was thrown into disorder. Someone has kidnapped most of it’s residents. A couple of brave hearts tried to rescue their friends but none of them has returned. Little Toby didn’t want to just sit and wait so he decided to find them by himself. He went to the near deep forest but he soon realized this is just a beginning of a big adventure.

Go with Toby on an eerie adventure in a dark and creepy world full of dangerous situations, enemies and challenging puzzles.”

Toby: The Secret Mine will be on the eShop early next year, “some weeks before Nintendo Switch will launch.” We’ve posted a trailer from the original release below.

Slime-san was minding its own business, sliming around in a peaceful forest when suddenly…A giant worm appeared and gobbled it up! Now deep within the worm’s belly, Slime-san has to face a decision: Be digested by the incoming wall of stomach acid… Or jump, slide and slime its way through the worms intestines and back out its mouth!

And a rundown of features:

  • Incredibly fast-paced and twitch-timing platforming madness!
  • No time to stay still as you are chased by a wall of acid at every corner! Run, run, run!

  • Collect partially-digested apples to unlock different play styles, outfits, shaders and mini games!
  • Get your shopping done in a town of survivors within the worm, home to colorful characters and surprising secrets.
  • Each level is timed with online rankings, for the competitive and score-oriented.
