Thanks to yesterday’s Nintendo Download report, we received confirmation that Nova-111 is launching on the European Wii U eShop this week. Now we can say the same about North America as well.

Curve Digital confirmed today that Nova-111 is planned for a worldwide release this Thursday on the eShop. For the first two weeks, the game will have a 25 percent discount.


Nova-111 is launching on the Wii U eShop in September, Funktronic Labs and Curve Digital have announced.

You’ll find an official overview with a breakdown of features below. Additionally, new screenshots can be found in the attached gallery.

The game is the brain child of ex Q-Games developers Eddie Lee and Kalin, whose previous work included the PixelJunk series. Since being originally announced, Nova-111 has been a mainstay in the American expo scene – picking up awards at PAX and SXSW, and being named a finalist at Indiecade 2014.

Nova-111 is a sci-fi themed adventure that lets you utilise both real-time decisions and turn-based strategy to fight enemies and solve puzzles. Pilot your trusty orange vessel through mysterious and foreign planets, navigating mind-warping puzzles and engaging in strategic battles with bizarre astrobiological creatures. It’s all based in a twisted environment where the turn-based world and the real-time world collide – can you fix space-time and rescue the scientists lost in the aftermath of the Universe’s Greatest Science Experiment?

Nova-111 features

· Twisted mix of turn-based and real-time gameplay
· Strategic combat where brains beats brawn
· Mind-warping puzzles…in space!
· Abilities like TIME-STOP to cleverly avoid danger
· Collectible upgrades and modules for your ship

Curve Studios’ Wii U support continues. Today, in conjunction with Funktronic Labs, the company announced that Nova-111 is heading to the Wii U eShop early next year.

Nova-111 is a sci-fi themed adventure game that offers a mix of turn-based gameplay and real-time action. Players will need to use both real time decisions and turn based strategy to fight enemies and solve puzzles. Curve says, “The combination of two very different methods of interacting with the world creates a title that allows for the sense of urgency of real-time games while providing the depth of strategy and methodical combat decisions typically associated with turn-based titles.”
