Runner3 shows off one of its bosses

Choice Provisions is back with another Runner3 blog update. In the latest post, the final boss of Spookyland is shown. You’ll be facing off against the Parliament of Owls in this area.
Here’s the lowdown from Choice Provisions:
“These owls are not what you’d call honorable. And to make matters worse, their nocturnal nature makes it so that all court activities must take place in the dead of night. I’m really trying to avoid making a Night Court joke here.
I should probably also mention that these owls are currently in what you’d call a “t-pose”, meaning they won’t have their arms awkwardly raised like that when you encounter them in the game. Rather, they’ll probably be doing something menacing like banging their gavel or hurling their wigs at you.”

A new Yooka-Laylee trailer came out this week. In it, Playtonic gave fans a look at various mini-games included in its 3D platformer. There is one extra multiplayer element not touched upon in the video though.

Hollow Knight canned for Wii U, moving to Switch

Yet another indie developer is cancelling plans for Wii U in favor of a Switch version. Today, Team Cherry announced that Hollow Knight is no longer coming to Nintendo’s current console, but it will be on Switch instead.
Hollow Knight actually isn’t too far away from hitting Switch. The team intends to release it “not too long” after Switch launches.
Team Cherry wrote in a blog pospt:
“We’ve had a long conversation with Nintendo and given their recent reveals, we can now announce: Hollow Knight is making the switch to Nintendo’s new portable/home/hybrid platform!
That’s both sad and happy news for us. Though we can confirm the Switch as a release platform, we also have to confirm that Hollow Knight will no longer make its way to the Wii U. That’s not a step we’ve taken lightly. Our Wii U release has recently been hampered by several technical challenges and though we’d love to see Hollow Knight on our favourite console, we feel the quality difference would end up such that Wii U players will be experiencing a lesser version of the game.
We’re aiming to release the Switch version of Hollow Knight not too long after the platform’s launch.”

Rime dev believed the game wouldn’t be released at one point, explains how it changed
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
Rime is finally launching in May. It’s been a long and stressful development period for Tequila Works, having originally announced its project in 2013.
Tequila Works creative director Raul Rubio admitted to IGN that Rime’s development was actually in jeopardy at one point. As he explained:
“Yes, there were a lot of moments where we thought that the game wasn’t going to be released. In fact I was completely sure of that once. Fortunately that didn’t happened.”
“That [possibility] was always for technical reasons. Not for financial or something business related.”
“When we announced that we were acquiring back Rime’s IP there were cancellation rumors. The truth is that in that precise moment we were moving to a bigger office, that’s pretty far from being closing a Company, isn’t it?”

The Unlikely Legend Rusty Pup: Wii U version cancelled, coming to Switch instead
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS eShop, News, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop | 11 Comments | 0 Likes
In an interview with Nintendo Life, The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup creator Chris Seaver of Gory Detail has stated that development of the Wii U version of the puzzle platformer has stopped for now. Instead, the focus lies on the PC version at the moment – however, as soon as Gory Detail get their hands on a Switch developer kit, they will work on porting the game to Nintendo’s newest system. Additionally, Seaver stated that a release of the 3DS version is “dependent on resources and time issues”.
Here are his statements in full:
“We’re looking to have everything done on the PC side by September or so, the Nintendo Switch side of things depends on when dev kits become available. As you can imagine there’s a lot of people wanting them and I can’t imagine little indies like us are too high on the list. We’ll see.
I’d pretty much back-burnered the Wii U in terms of dev for a while now because of the cost to develop on something that was increasingly seen as a dead end system. Along comes the Switch, hopefully reinvigorating Nintendo’s home console market. It all dovetails nicely. Switch is pretty much a defo, just not sure when. 3DS is dependent on resources and time issues but currently a yes. Wii U, nah.”
Nicalis also seems to be planning Hydra Castle Labyrinth for Switch
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
A short while ago, Nicalis tweeted out a picture (now deleted by the way) suggesting that Cave Story and 1001 Spikes are on the way to Switch. There was one additional game at the very end which was clipped out, so it wasn’t entirely clear what that was. Now gamers have pieced things together, and it seems that Nicalis is also planning Hydra Castle Labyrinth for Switch.
Hydra Castle Labyrinth is a 2D platformer / action-adventure game created for PC. Similar to Castlevania, players explore a big dungeon and gather items along the way to process.
