Posted on 2 months ago by Zack in News, Wii U eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
After being denied certification for a Wii U release previously, Hive Jump is progressing towards an eShop release with a second attempt at receiving certification after a round of bug fixing. In a recent Kickstarter update to backers, Graphite Lab announced that they’re now just waiting on word from Nintendo.
Our last update explained some of the issues we faced with our first run through certification. We’re happy to share that we’ve fixed those issues (and a few more that we’d uncovered along the way). We’ve submitted once again to Nintendo and are anxiously awaiting approval!
Hopefully this means we’ll soon see Hive Jump on Wii U.

Stardew Valley will be coming to Switch sometime in the near future. When it’s ready, it could be getting a special physical edition. CDON, a Swedish retailer, is listing Stardew Valley Collector’s Edition for Switch.

50+ indie games cancelled and still on for Wii U, in limbo, moved to Switch
Posted on 2 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Features, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 36 Comments | 0 Likes
Wii U is in an interesting position right now. Although Switch is the hot new thing, Nintendo’s older console still exists, and games continue to come out for the old console each week via the eShop. Just a couple of days ago for example, The Girl and the Robot finally hit Wii U after a nearly four-year wait.
Throughout Wii U’s lifespan, many indie games were announced for the platform. Many came out, but plenty never actually made it to the console. Since Wii U is starting to wind down at this point, we’ve attempted to investigate as many noteworthy, unreleased indie titles as possible to see if they’re still planned.
Our full findings are included below. Note that we’ve left out certain games that were reconfirmed for Wii U within the past few months, such as Hive Jump, Soul Saga, and Lobodestroyo.

We heard earlier this year that Nefarious could move from Wii U to Switch. The Wii U version still appears to be happening, based on comments from creator Josh Hano.
Hano confirmed to 4colorrebellion that the team hasn’t ceased its work on Nintendo’s older console. Right now, the team is trying to solve some “technical hurdles,” but it is running “on a basic level” at least.
“We haven’t stopped working on it! We are experiencing some technical hurdles, but we did manage to get it playing on a basic level. We still have a lot of things we need to do to make it work, but our initial once-over was very promising.”

Ackk Studios once again says Chromophore: The Two Brothers Director’s Cut is still happening
Posted on 3 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
AckkStudios has long been working on a couple of projects for Wii U. The first, YIIK, is starting to near the end of development and is also now on the way to Switch. The other is Chromophore: The Two Brothers Director’s Cut.
In February, AckkStudios said that Chromophore: The Two Brothers Director’s Cut is still happening. Nothing has changed since then, as the game is in the pipeline. It will receive the studio’s full attention once YIIK is fully complete. Of course, it remains to be seen where it’ll end up – likely Switch at the very least.

The Girl and the Robot, first announced for Wii U in 2013, is finally landing on the eShop next week. Nintendo’s website lists it for May 25 in North America. The game will set you back $9.99.
Here’s an overview of The Girl and the Robot:
“The Girl and the Robot is a unique third person action/adventure game set in a fairy tale world. You take on the role of a young girl trying to escape from a castle ruled by an evil queen. On her way, she meets a mysterious robot that can be controlled remotely and together they encounter many challenges that test the strength of their new found friendship. This game is the first act of the fairy tale.”
And some Wii U screenshots:
Flying Carpets Games said in March that the team was “exploring” a Switch version of The Girl and the Robot. Nothing is set in stone just yet, however.

Switch will be the first platform to have De Mambo’s Survival Mode. The game will be playable at BitSummit in Japan this weekend.
In the new Nyannyan Neko Mario Time episode just posted by Nintendo, several new indie titles for Switch were announced. One of these we felt deserves special mention. Based on the video, we can now say that Owlboy is coming to Switch.
After it was in development for nearly a decade, Owlboy made it to Steam towards the end of last year and has been highly well-regarded. There’s no release date at this time, but at least we know that it’s on the way.
Here’s a good look at Owlboy via a trailer:
