Wii U eShop

Gaijin Games is currently gearing up to release Runner2. If all goes well, it should make it out later this month. An official date hasn’t been set, but Gaijin hopes to have it ready to on on the Wii U eShop on February 26.

A tweet from Gaijin reads:

Thanks to NR for the tip.

“Actually I think Death Inc. would be a great fit. To be honest we hadn’t thought about it much before the Kickstarter campaign – but there’s been this support for the idea that we thought… hang on. This could work. The control mechanic is very tactile and satisfying – it would be perfect for any touch screen device.

“And even better for the Wii U because we wouldn’t have to compromise on the visuals like we might have to do if we did a tablet version (which would also be cool). I love, love, love the ‘living room’ experience of playing games — it’s my favourite setting, so it would be amazing to see it there.”

– Ambient Studios co-founder Johnny Hopper

The sooner they get it out the better! I know if it came out, got decent reviews, and wasn’t priced too ridiculously I would pick it up in a second since there isn’t much else on the eShop at this point. Heck, I almost picked up Puddle the other day simply because I wanted something to play on Wii U that was new… but I didn’t in the end. Whether there would be more support for Death Inc. I’m not sure– I know that reviews would probably play a big role in getting people to pick it up, since there likely wouldn’t be any measurable “hype” around an eShop release.

Nintendo Details Another Huge List of Upcoming Games for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U

REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 14, 2013 – After decades of playing second fiddle to the No. 1 video game hero, Luigi is getting some love from Nintendo. Nintendo has named 2013 the “Year of Luigi,” thanks to the numerous appearances that Mario’s timid, green-clad twin brother will be making in games this year. In a Nintendo Direct video, Nintendo provided details about games on the way that feature Luigi, as well as information about more than two dozen upcoming games, including content for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS across packaged and digital formats.

“Luigi is just the green tip of the iceberg of all the great news we have to share with Nintendo fans this year and beyond,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s president and COO. “We’re showing how Nintendo 3DS and Wii U continue to be a source of fun, entertainment and great surprises.”

Wii Street U, previously launched in Japan, is available now in North America.

Nintendo has also announced a March 28 date for HarmoKnight. A demo is coming on March 14.

Nintendo is also bringing “Kersploosh” to the 3DS eShop. This will be out on March 7.

Additionally, Nintendo has announced a new 3DS eShop title “Mario & Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move”. Look out for more information about this on the coming weeks.

Dillon’s Rolling Western is getting a sequel on the 3DS eShop. Subtitled “The Last Ranger”. The game launches on April 11.

If you live in Europe (or Japan), you can purchase Tank! Tank! Tank! two different ways. The first is by purchasing the full game at retail. The other is by downloading a free base game from the Wii U eShop.

A Basic Pack comes with Monster Battle mode, Free-For-All mode, and Team Versus mode, each of which are set in the Urban Area stage. Gamers can try out the free version three times per day.

Below is a full listing of DLC with European prices. Buying one item unlocks the game, meaning there won’t be daily play limits in place.

NostalgiCO launched a Kickstarter for its new action RPG, Cryamore, in late January. Nearly $150,000 has been raised thus far and is well ahead of the original $60,000 goal. If the studio is able to surpass $250,000, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions will be made.

You can get an idea of Cryamore’s gameplay in the video above. The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, and Secret of Mana were all inspirations.
