505 Games

505 Games appears to be bringing Terraria to Nintendo platforms, based on GameFly listings. The retailer has Terraria listed for both Wii U and 3DS.

GameFly lists an October 31 release date for both versions. However, this is likely a placeholder.

Terraria was once thought to be out of the question for Wii U and 3DS. I wonder what changed!


Three more games should be reaching the North American Wii U eShop this week. Another World – 20th Anniversary Edition, How to Survive, and Color Zen Kids will all launch in just a few days, assuming listings on the Wii U eShop are correct. Each will release on June 19.


Terrarria won’t be coming to Wii U, according to 505 Games.

The publisher ruled out any potential plans to bring the title to Nintendo’s console on its official forums. 505 Games said, “there are other factors at play that prevent it from happening and we don’t expect that to change any time soon unfortunately.”

The company’s full comments are as follows:

We do not have any plans to bring Terraria to Wii U and it is not in development. Sorry. While the control mechanism may be nicely translated (agreed on that end), there are other factors at play that prevent it from happening and we don’t expect that to change any time soon unfortunately.

After a fairly long wait, How to Survive is finally making its way to Wii U. The European eShop has the game listed for a June 5 launch – that’d be next week. These listings aren’t always 100% accurate, though they’re spot on more often than not.

Thanks to MATT81DE for the tip.


Despite having been released months ago on other platforms, How to Survive remains in development for Wii U.

The game’s Twitter account stated today that team is “working to get it out there”, with news potentially coming “soon”.

The full tweet reads:


How to Survive’s launch came and gone in late October, but the game still hasn’t made its way to Wii U. The game’s absence has led some to question whether it’d ever land on the eShop, but we can confirm that 505 Games’ original plans haven’t changed.

The publisher told us that How to Survive is still very much in the works for Wii U. It remains in development, and according to 505 Games, will release on Nintendo’s console next year.

505 Games has pulled the plug on Ashes Cricket 2013 even though the game showed up briefly on Steam a few days ago. It was originally planned for release in July, but was pushed back to November due to quality reasons.

Now 505 games has cancelled Ashes Cricket 2013 entirely. That means all versions of the game – including Wii U – won’t be hitting store shelves.
