Falling Skies: The Game

Based on a new listing on the eShop, Falling Skies: The Game could be heading to Europe in a couple of weeks. The official game page includes an October 30 release date at the moment. This hasn’t been officially confirmed, but listings on the eShop tend to be spot on these days.


Falling Skies: The Game has gone gold, publisher Little Orbit announced today. The game will be available on September 30 on the Wii U eShop. Pricing is set at $39.99.

A new enemies walkthrough video for Falling Skies: The Game can be found above. Check out a comprehensive overview below.

Footage from Falling Skies: The Game was shown at the GameStop Expo today. Check it out below:

Falling Skies: The Game is coming to the Wii U eShop on September 30, Little Orbit has announced.

The publisher tweeted out today’s news a few minutes ago:

Falling Skies: The Game was originally planned for retail, though the company ended up going with a digital-only launch instead.


Falling Skies: The Game is still planned for Wii U, but it will now only be available through the eShop. The title had initially been announced for retail alongside the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Little Orbit confirmed on Twitter today:


Did you notice that the recent teaser trailer for Falling Skies: The Game lacked a Wii U logo/boxart? Well, we certainly did! A mention of Wii U has also been missing from recent press announcements surrounding the game. We dug a big further and noticed that retailers such as GameFly and GameStop have pulled their listings for the Wii U version.

So, what does this all mean? Has Falling Skies: The Game been cancelled for Wii U? I’m inclined to say “yes” at present based on the evidence available to us.

Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to obtain an official confirmation regarding Falling Skies’ status on Wii U. We tried reaching out to Little Orbit last week, but have not received a response.
