It’s looking like all hope is not lost for soccer fans missing FIFA 15 on the Wii U, as it’s looking possible that another big name soccer title is heading to Nintendo’s home console. A couple of French websites have made mention of Nintendo’s platform and though the translation is a little rough, both sites clearly make mention of the Wii U as one of the platforms getting Konami’s FIFA rival, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015.

The first source comes by way of Jeuxvideo which has the following listed:

It took time, but PES 2015 is now officially announced by Konami. An episode which will be a first step towards the eighth generation of consoles, an eagerly awaited by many fans of the series forward. ‘s first news however, is that owners of PS3 and 360 will not be forgotten since PES 2015 will also be released on these media (therefore giving PS3, 360, PS4 , One and Wii U ). The bad news is that for now, the PC does not seem concerned.

Friend of the site Nintendo-town had this to say:

Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 arrives on Wii U

Konami takes advantage of the opportunity of this lack of competition and confirmed that Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 arrives on Wii U at the same time as the PS3 versions, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A very good news for the players of the Nintendo console. The editor also probably finding his account leaving the game on Wii U in Japan,

Though nothing concrete, definitely worth keeping an eye on for sports fans.

Okay, so I know that I teased that I’d be writing about a different game in the last column (which was posted five months ago, holy crap) but there’s a reason for that. Turns out that a game that’s essentially “Style Savvy but also a dating sim” isn’t all that unique when Nintendo ended up adding boyfriends to Style Savvy anyway. So instead I chose to write about one of my favourite Game Boy titles in celebration of the handheld’s 25th anniversary (which was three months ago, holy crap). Yep, that chunky handheld sure gave us plenty of timeless experiences like Link’s Awakening, Mole Mania, and Revenge of the Gator’s title screen, but today I want to focus on a lesser-known classic for Nintendo’s monochromatic machine, an early Japanese dungeon crawler called Cave Noire published by Konami way back in 1991.

Prince of Tennis II is slated for a November 6th release and today a few screenshots were released along with a few tidbits:

  • The game follows the anime series
  • Takes place in a training camp
  • You play as a female rookie journalist who interviews the team members
