Wii U eShop

Cryamore surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $60,000 several days ago. However, developer NostalgiCO was looking to raise a total of $225,000 in order to pledge support to consoles.

Just hours before the Kickstarter campaign closes, NostalgiCO has managed to collect $225,787 (and counting). That means Cryamore will be made for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android versions are also planned.

Congratulations to the folks at NostalgiCO!

WayForward is planning an update for Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition.

On the latest episode of “Sup, Holmes?”, Austin Ivansmith said that the studio will be addressing audio issues and “a couple of other bugs”. Ivansmith mentioned that Hyper Drive’s audio can be very loud for some players when first booting up the game.

WayForward hasn’t confirmed a release date for the update. However, once it’s ready, it’ll be available in both North America and Europe (presumably at the same time). And when it’s updated in Europe, the full game will launch in Australia.

Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition was a Wii U eShop launch title in North America and Europe (for all intents and purposes). But in Australia, the game never saw a release.

This will be changing soon, according to WayForward. Fans can expect Mighty Switch Force HD to arrive in Australia “soon”.

The developer tweeted just a few minutes ago:


Another day, another Kickstarter for a Wii U eShop project.

Maestro Games has launched a new campaign for Cosmic Highway, a new title set to hit Nintendo’s digital store in late spring. The indie dev hopes to raise funds to finish the game’s final 15 levels and overall content for Wii U.

The Kickstarter will end on March 15. Maestro hopes to raise a total of $6,000.

You can find more information about Cosmic Highway here.

Maestro Interactive is bringing three titles to the Wii U eShop. One of these is Cosmic Highway.

A first screenshot was released by Maestro – posted below – but be aware that it comes from an early prototype:

The character featured in the shot is known as the “Inventor”. In Cosmic Highway, the Inventor will be able to use a smokescreen ability to cloud up his opponents’ view.


Two Tribes is very close to submitting Toki Tori 2 to Nintendo. On Twitter, the studio wrote that it anticipates sending the game off to the Big N next week.

Two Tribes estimates being 97.21% done with the game… quite the precise figure!


Gaijin Games was a staunch supporter of the Wii– and Nintendo in general– over the last generation, but believe it or not they had initially planned on skipping the Wii U with their upcoming game Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien. The following comes from an interview with NES:

Once we started seeing what the Wii U had to offer, being Nintendo developers, we started to get excited. Since we’d self-published with Nintendo before with lilt line, we were confident that we could handle it with Runner2, and made the decision to go in that direction for the Wii U version.

They weren’t always completely happy with the system, however, and they say that if they had to complain about anything it would be the way Nintendo does online. They say it “isn’t as robust as Sony or Microsoft’s”, but note that it’s “WAY better than the Wii” and in the end it’s easy enough to work with once you get the hang of it.
