140 is planned for a summer release on Nintendo platforms. Take a look at a trailer below.

Abstraction Games is currently working on bringing Whispering Willows to Wii U. After that, two more titles from the company will hit Nintendo’s console. Abstraction plans on having Kick & Fennick as well as Devil’s Dare on the eShop.

Here’s an overview and trailer for Kick & Fennick, which previously launched on the PlayStation Vita:

“Kick & Fennick is a brand new platform adventure about a little boy with a very big gun.

Soon after waking up in a desolate but colorful world, Kick meets a small flying robot named Fennick. When Fennick saves Kick from a menacing guard robot, they find out Fennick’s battery is broken. Together, they embark on an adventure to the Core Tower to find Fennick a new energy core.

Besides shooting down enemy robots, Kick can make huge jumps by using his gun’s powerful recoil. Jump and shoot your way through 45 levels of collapsed skyscrapers, treadmills, bouncypads, magnets, teleporters and that big guard robot who’s never far behind!

Kick & Fennick features colorful 3d graphics, detailed animation, a cinematic camera system and smooth character movement and physics. “

Additional footage from one of last week’s Wii U eShop games, Whispering Willows, is now available. Take a look at the latest video below.

A listing on the eShop confirms that Whispering Willows will be arriving in Europe next week. The Wii U game will be going for €9.99. There’s no North American date yet, but we’ll probably be hearing something sooner rather than later.


Abstraction Games and Night Light Interactive Partner today announced that Whispering Willows is making its way to Wii U.

Here’s the official overview:

Project Elena’s soul outside her body to solve puzzles, reach hidden areas, and interact with other spirts to ultimately determine what happened to her father.

Rich with narrative and filled with gorgeous hand-painted 2D visuals, Whispering Willows is a horror themed side-scrolling adventure where players take the role of Elena, a young girl determined to solve the mystery behind her missing father. Using a unique amulet gifted from her father, Elena possesses the extraordinary ability to project her spirit outside of her body. While in this spectral form, she can interact with the benevolent spirits and wicked wraiths that used to dwell within the walls of the sinister Willows Mansion. Help Elena use her astral projection to solve puzzles, help lost spirits, and uncover the mysteries behind her missing father.
