Kerbal Space Program might not be coming to Wii U after all
Posted on 5 months ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Wii U eShop | 10 Comments | 0 Likes
Back in July of last year, indie developer Squad announced that Wii U version of their game Kerbal Space Program would be available “this Winter”. Well, we are now in the middle of that Winter, but the game is nowhere to be seen on Wii U. In fact, it looks like the Wii U version might be cancelled for good. Here’s what Squad’s community manager had to say on their official forums on the topic:
“The industry landscape changed since we made that announcement. Although we were excited to release this port, external factors are forcing us to reevaluate if it is the right move for Kerbal Space Program. It is still to soon to give you a definite decision, so we’ll give you more detailed information in the future.”
Still a fairly vague answer and no definitive confirmation that the Wii U version has been cancelled, but it’s seems fairly likely that that is what’s going to happen eventually. We will keep you updated on the matter – perhaps Squad will do what many other developers have done and shift their focus towards a Switch version of the game instead.

The launch of forma.8, the latest game from Futuridium EP Deluxe developer MixedBag Games, was targeted for February after a development of almost three years.
And now they have just confirmed that forma.8 will definitely meet that launch window, coming out on Wii U sometime next month. Having passed both Nintendo of America and Europe processes, it’s only a matter of time before they divulge the day it will launch on Wii U.
A port of forma.8 for 3DS is also planned for a future date.

Zuno shared a brief look at Elliot Quest running on 3DS earlier today. Additionally, he says it’s releasing “very soon.”
The full tweet is as follows:

Nefarious may move from Wii U to Switch
Posted on 5 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 16 Comments | 0 Likes
Nefarious could be the latest indie game to jump ship from Wii U to Switch.
In a Kickstarter update, StarBlade Games talks about how cancelling Nefarious’ Wii U version is being considered. Switch would obviously be taking its place. To decide on which direction to take, the team is currently asking fans about what they believe is the best course of action.
StarBlade’s Kickstarter update contains the following note:
“The release of the Switch is certainly throwing a monkey wrench into things. We have our Wii U dev kit, and we really want to do a release on it. But like many devs in our situation, we’ve been considering pivoting our stance and focusing on the Switch as opposed to the Wii U. However, we wanted this to be a discussion with our backers. Is this something you would like to see?”
