Wii U owners can now grab Ubisoft’s Uplay app from the eShop. It’s only a 43MB program, so it shouldn’t take long to download and install.

If you can’t locate the app on the eShop, search for “Uplay” and it should pop up in the results.

European Wii U owners will be able to purchase the following titles from the eShop tomorrow:

Trine 2: Directors Cut – £10.99 / €13.49
Puddle – £7.19 / €7.99
Nano Assault Neo – £8.99 / €9.99
Little Inferno – £12.99 / €14.99
Chasing Aurora – £10.79 / €11.99

Nintendo has also confirmed that a demo for FIFA 13 will be available.

Frozenbyte has revealed plans to update Trine 2: Director’s Cut next month. When the patch is made available, players will be able to chat with each other online. The only caveat is that you’ll need a headset with a separate mic to take advantage of the functionality.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


Nintendo originally shot down the idea of the original Binding of Isaac on the 3DS due to “questionable religious content”. But now the game is getting a remake, and creator Ed McMillen/new partner Nicalis “have a feeling the new look might soften up a few people at Nintendo for a possible Wii U/3DS eShop release.”

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will feature a second planned expansion not included in the Flash version, local co-op, and full 16-bit graphics. With the new visual style and the fact that Nicalis is on board, I’d say this project has a pretty decent shot at a Wii U and/or 3DS release.


Mutant Mudds Deluxe, the beefed-up version of the original Mutant Mudds, will be available on the Wii U eShop in Q1 2013. This is actually the most-specific release window given by Renegade Kid thus far.

The studio is keeping quiet on most of the game’s details, but we do know one thing for sure, thanks to co-founder Jools Watsham. On Twitter, Watsham said Deluxe will have its own “unique content”.


Cloudberry Kingdom developer Pwnee Studios originally hoped to have the team’s game out for the Wii U’s launch. That didn’t happen, and it won’t be out within the next few days either.

When asked if Cloudberry Kingdom would launch this month, the studio said:

”Unfortunately it is not. Looks like we’re going to delay for a bit and go for a simultaneous launch across multiple platforms.”

Pwnee Studios hasn’t shared a new release window. Surely it’ll be hitting the Wii U eShop before the end of the year… right?!

We have a slightly better idea as to when the ZombiU demo will be available. One of the game’s developer has confirmed that the download will be hitting the Wii U eShop before December 15.

Let’s hope the Rayman Legends demo will also be out by then…
