Europe is catching up with a new Wii U Virtual Console game this week. Having previously been published in North America, Bonk’s Revenge will be out this week in Europe. Nintendo’s website lists it for release tomorrow.

Here’s an overview:

“The hard-headed hero is back for more in the second instalment of the Bonk series. Taking place in the Monster Kingdom, Bonk the Caveman must travel far and wide to find and defeat King Drool III.

Bonk’s™ Revenge is a side-scrolling action game in which you headbutt your enemies while you make your way to the end of each stage. Double or even triple your attack power by eating the slabs of meat that appear through the stages.

There are eight different hidden Bonus Stages, and the Dinosaur Train that appears after you defeat a boss will change depending on how many Smileys you’ve collected. With new actions available such as the Triangle Jump and the ability to climb trees, as well as seven variety-packed stages, Bonk’s™ Revenge will keep you playing again and again.”


Kemco is bringing another RPG to Wii U with next week’s Revenant Saga on the Japanese eShop. It may very well be released in the west as well, but you can view the official trailer below.

Nintendo eShop

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.

A few new games out came out this week on the Wii U and 3DS eShops. If you’re interested in checking out what’s new in screenshot form, take a look at the gallery below.

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.

Hano said:

“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.”
