Wombat Source is continuing to update GetClose with new modes and features. The latest upgrade, targeted for next week, will add a new “Protect the Crown” mode. This can be played either alone or with friends in a co-op setting.

Take a look at GetClose’s May update in video form below.


Wombat Source isn’t done providing updates for GetClose. The developer confirmed today that a new mode is in the works that will offer single-player support.

Sometime in the future, players will be able to download a patch to obtain survival mode. You’ll be tasked with surviving the longest against waves of enemies on new and old maps. Up to four players can participate in survival mode, though there will be the option to play alone as well.

GetClose was one of the new games to have launched on the North American Wii U eShop this week. If you plan on purchasing the game, perhaps you’ll be interested to know that it takes up 106.3 MB. That’s pretty small!

Two new digital Wii U games have been confirmed for release this week via listings on the eShop. GetClose and Heptrix are both expected on November 27. Pricing is set at $4.99 and $1.99 respectively.

GetClose has now been approved for release on the Wii U eShop, developer Wombat Source has confirmed.

The studio wrote on Twitter earlier today:

GetClose was originally targeted for an October launch. The game’s Twitter profile now lists November, so we’ll probably see the title either next week or the following week.
