Wii U eShop

Greek developer Pelikan13 launched a Kickstarter for “The 90’s Arcade Racer” just a few days ago. At the moment, it’s standing at £3,146 (roughly 31%) of the £10,000 goal. With 26 days remaining, the campaign has a good shot of becoming a fully-funded project.

The 90’s Arcade Racer has been confirmed for a few platforms thus far, but not Wii U. Could that change in the future? Pelikan13 seems open to the possibility, telling Nintendo Life:

“These are early days for me to be thinking that far ahead, once the game nears completion I will see what other versions I can consider. It’s mainly a financial issue. Having said that, I own and very much enjoy playing on Wii U and 3DS, so it’s something that I would really like to see happen in the future.”

If you want to learn more about the project, hit up the Kickstarter link here. Perhaps we’ll see this one on the Wii U eShop one day!

Maestro iGames can officially make Wii U games. The indie dev announced on Twitter today that it has become an approved developer for the console.

Super Ubi Land will be the first Wii U eShop title from Maestro. Currently, the team is targeting its launch for the spring.


Neko Entertainment, the studio behind Puddle on the Wii U eShop, may opt to bring future titles to the platform.

QA manager Sébastien Chipot-Delys was recently asked if Puddle’s development on Wii U inspired the team with ideas about the future and whether Neko has any additional projects planned for the console. This was the response:

“Yes, we learned a lot by developing Puddle on Wii U, and it will be definitely helpful for the future and our next titles on Wii U!”

Chipot-Delys was also asked about the possibility of 3DS support. He said:

“I cannot tell you more for the moment, but it is a possibility…amongst a lot of others!”
