Wii U eShop

Lords of New York, a new game from Lunchtime Studios seeking funding, could head to the Wii U eShop.

The adventure RPG sees players “follow the story of one of three high stakes poker players as they pursue their life’s ambitions and become one of New York’s elite.” Lunchtime Studios writes on its Kickstarter page that in Lords of New York, “Each character has unique gameplay, end goals and poker style (cheating, intuition or statistics) all designed to support a compelling story arc. While the paths of their stories may cross, they are completely different, increasing the game’s replayability.”

Wii U is included in the developer’s platform plans. If Lords of New York were to be fully funded, it would be available on the eShop at launch.

We should caution that Lunchtime Studios has set a rather high funding ceiling on Kickstarter. With only $11,063 raised out of a near $300,000 goal, it’s going to be difficult to reach that total.

You can find more information about Lords of New York on the Kickstarter page here.

Renegade Kid has finally unleashed a few details about Treasurenauts, which was first uncovered through a trademark filing.

Studio co-founder Jools Watsham confirmed to Operation Rainfall that Treasurenauts will be a 2D game. Additionally, it’s being made on the same engine powering Mutant Mudds.

Treasurenauts is only for the 3DS eShop at the moment. But Watsham did say that a Wii U version is a possibility.

“It’s going to be for the 3DS, potentially for the Wii U, and from what I can say right now is that it’s 2D, and it’s using Mudd‘s engine.”


Toki Tori 2 has completed all steps in the submission process. Developer Two Tribes confirmed on Twitter a short while ago that Nintendo has approved the game, meaning it should hit its April 4 release date. That’s a worldwide release – you’ll be able to pick up Toki Tori 2 in both North America and Europe in just a couple of weeks.


Nintendo is working on new functionality for the eShop. It’s unclear what exactly is in store, but business development manager Dan Adelman told Gamasutra that “there’s a dedicated team working through a roadmap of new features.” Announcements will be made “as they get closer to release.”

“In terms of other Nintendo eShop functionality, there’s a dedicated team working through a roadmap of new features. We’ll be able to announce those as they get closer to release.”

It may just be a pipe dream for now, but Shovel Knight developer Yacht Club Games’ Sean Valesco would love to have some form of local multiplayer in their upcoming sidescroller. After the The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords was mentioned to Valesco at PAX East this week by Destructoid editor Jonathan Holmes, he got pretty excited:

“Awww, just saying ‘Four Swords’ make my brain go electric! I want that so bad. Just picturing four Shovel Knight’s running and jumping and digging around on screen together at the same time… and the Wii U control pad? So many possibilities…”

– Yacht Club Games’ Sean Valesco

Yacht Club Games probably wants to make it clear that this isn’t a hint at anything, nor is there any real chance this could make it in at this point. It’s just a dream that they may try, and may put into Shovel Knight down the line. Or they might not, and we’ll never hear of it again.

Keep your hopes in check!

Another round of Nintendo maintenance (“extended” this time, not “emergency”!) will be taking place on all of Nintendo’s platforms over the next few days.

The bulk of the downtime is happening today. Each one of Nintendo’s online shops will be down between 12 PM and 6 PM PT. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2 will be affected at different parts of the day as well.

Tomorrow’s maintenance is much lighter – only Pokemon Black/White 1/2 will see downtime.

The full schedule is posted below.

Dan Adelman is quickly becoming a prominent figure at Nintendo. The business development manager joined the company in 2005, and has pretty much been the man in charge – behind the scenes – for Nintendo’s indie involvement and digital offerings.

Gamasutra sat down with Adelman for a chat covering various indie and eShop topics. He confirmed the removal of Nintendo’s indie developer office space requirement and WiiWare threshold for all digital platforms. Adelman also talked about how indies set their own prices, can easily update their games, puchase a dev kit for “about the price of a high-end PC”, and more.

Head past the break for all of Adelman’s comments.
