Elemental-Labs has pulled the plug on Reborn’s Kickstarter. However, there are plans for a relaunch next month.
In a Kickstarter update, Elemental-Labs explained, “after thinking about our Kickstarter campaign and talking to backers regarding our reward levels and various other requests for ports including our stretch goals, we really want to consider a relaunch of REBORN with many things about our campaign corrected and refined.”
Reborn’s next Kickstarter will include items such as a behind-the-scenes motion capture session, gameplay sneak-peak of the menu system, HUD, and combat/combo system, rewards restructure, and improved stretch goals.
Knite & The Ghost Lights Kickstarter promises Wii U version
Posted 3 years ago by Brian in News, Wii U eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
Last month, Mobot Studios opened a Kickstarter for “Knite & The Ghost Lights” – a new side-scrolling adventure game. It promises “a mixture of adventure, storytelling, and action from games we know and love like Metroid and Castlevania, but with a completely fresh feel for today’s gamer.”
Mobot Studios added in support for a Wii U version of a couple of weeks ago, but the news kind of went under the radar. If Knite & The Ghost Lights is funded, you can expect to see it on the console “close” to the game’s launch.
Now here’s the thing: Knite & The Ghost Lights only has about six days left to reach its Kickstarter goal. A little over $18,000 has been raised out of the required $35,000 total.

[REVIEW] Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut
System: Nintendo Wii U
Release Date: October 22nd, 2013 (NA)
Developer: Eidos Montreal
Publisher: Square Enix
Some games like to take themselves extremely seriously. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is one of those games.
The non-director’s cut (editor’s cut?) of this particular Eidos title came out back in 2011, and at the time it had not a home on a Nintendo console, which meant that folks who aligned themselves exclusively with the big N missed out on the game. When Square Enix saw the Wii U, apparently they also saw an opportunity to release an updated version of the game to a new audience– tag-lined “Director’s Cut”– and test the third party waters on this latest home console and its strange controller.
Roughly 7 months after the initial announcement, the game is out, and there’s good news: It’s pretty dang good.
Aonuma suggests he wanted to announce something relating to Zelda Wii U at Comic Con, preparing to show “something new” soon
Posted 3 years ago by Brian in News, Wii U | 12 Comments | 0 Likes
Eiji Aonuma recently stated he would “say more” about Zelda Wii U at next year’s E3. But apparently, he originally intended to make an announcement earlier this month.
The news comes from a recent interview Aonuma conducted with German publication Gameswelt TV. Translations of his comments suggest that he had hoped to share news at the New York Comic Con, but was too preoccupied preparing for his presentation. Aonuma ended up telling Gameswelt, “As soon as I am back at my office I will start preparing something new that I can show.”
Amazon lists Wii U version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for $50, 3DS for $30
Posted 3 years ago by Brian in 3DS, News, Wii U | 0 comments | 0 Likes
Amazon has already put up listings for Activision’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game. Apparently, it’ll be priced lower on Nintendo platforms.
Amazon currently has the Wii U version priced at $49.99 while other console versions are set at $59.99. Also worth mentioning, the 3DS version of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will only cost $29.99. Most 3DS titles tend to cost $39.99.
These could be generous or tentative listings by Amazon, so you may as well as pre-order now if you have any interest. Then again, perhaps Activision has actually decided to set the price of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 $10 lower on Nintendo platforms.

Aonuma on A Link Between Worlds – stealth, Ravio, Nabbit comparisons, never considered for Wii U, more
Posted 3 years ago by Brian in 3DS, General Nintendo, News, Podcast Stories | 10 Comments | 0 Likes
Spike just recently put up an interview with Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma. It’s filled with lots of questions about A Link Between Worlds, such as stealth elements, Ravio’s role, comparisons to New Super Mario Bros. U’s Nabbit, and whether it was ever considered for Wii U (nope). Aside from that, there are also some off-beat topics like localizing Marvelous: Another Treasure (directed by Aonuma many years ago).
You can find some excerpts from the interview below. Spike’s full piece is located here.
