After many years of development, Fez finally came out on the Xbox Live Arcade earlier this year. But developer Polytron isn’t stopping with just one release. According to creator Phil Fish, Fez will be ported to new platforms in 2013.

Fish wrote on the Polytron website today:

2013 is going to be an interesting one, too.

For one, FEZ will finally be ported to other platforms.

Yes, i’ve heard you, dozens of people emailing me everyday telling me how much of an idiot i am for not porting FEZ to everything.

Fish didn’t give any hints as to which systems Fez will land on. Surely though, platforms such as the Wii U eShop are among the realistic possibilities.


Given that Zen Pinball 2 didn’t land on the Wii U eShop on Thursday, there was no way it’d be released this month. So when will it launch, then?

Developer Zen Studios told one fan on Twitter that the game will be released in January. Let’s just hope there aren’t any further delays.

Last week, Notion Games said Nintendo invited the studio to bring Super Ubi Land to Wii U. This is something Notion is interested in, but it’ll need a little help first.

Notion will launch a Kickstarter next month in hopes of raising some money for a couple of Wii U eShop games – the previously mentioned Super Ubi Land and the 2D beat-em-up Team Notion. The Wii U-specific fundraiser will be kept low so that the goal will actually be attainable.


Remember how Zen Pinball 2 was supposed to arrive on the Wii U eShop this month? Well, today’s the last “Nintendo Download” of December, and the game won’t be out in either North America and Europe.

So where is the game? Nintendo of Europe’s site actually lists a December 27 release – which would be today – but it doesn’t look like it’ll be ready for prime time.

Maybe next month…


This week’s European Nintendo Downloads are as follows:

3DS Virtual Console

Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels – £4.49 / €4.99

Rabi Lady – £1.79 / €1.99 / 200 points
