We’ll be seeing Moving Player’s Rakoo & Friends on the Wii U eShop next week. In the video below, you can check out 10 minutes of footage from the game.

It’s been a day of file sizes, so let’s add two more to the list. The just-released Whispering Willows is just under 1.7GB. Rakoo & Friends, which is coming next week, has a 517MB download.


Rakoo & Friends now has a release date for Europe. The eShop is currently listing an October 15 release date for PAL regions. At launch, the game will cost €9.99.


Moving Player first confirmed plans to bring Rakoo’s Adventure to Wii U last October. Today, the company shared concrete details about this new console version.

Rakoo’s Adventure has been renamed to “Rakoo & Friends” on Wii U. Moving Player says that the eShop release “bloomed into a multiplayer console version full of fun and surprises”.

Here’s an overview of the game’s features:

– Join Rakoo in his adventures with this Full HD Wii U release
– An original racing and adventure game filled with humor and amazing cartoon graphics
– Up to 5 players in an exclusive multiplayer mode!
– Over 60 levels to complete with this endearing hero you will guide with your Wii U GamePad
– A multitude of enemies with various characteristics and epic bosses
– Fun bonuses ranging from «Hot Spicy» that boosts the speed to «Destructive Mount», an epic mount!
– Collect rewards and unique Miiverse stamps.
– Customize your heroes with fun objects!

Rakoo’s Adventure will be shown at Gamescom 2015 next month. It’s being tested for release by Nintendo, so it should be launching sooner rather than later.
