title update

PhobosLab has ironed out XType Plus’s major bug (freezes systems when accessing online leaderboards) and has already submitted an update. It’s currently in testing, and if all goes well, it should be out soon.

That means XType Plus should be up on the Wii U eShop in the very near fuure. Also, those who purchased the game in Europe before its removal will be able to update their game in order to patch the bug.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


One of the more prominent criticisms surrounding The Letter concerns the game’s length. For many, the entire experience can be completed in a half hour or less.

The Letter’s length is something that developer TreeFall Studios addressed in a recent Miiverse post. Creator Eli Brewer believes that despite its short nature, “The Letter is a finished game”. Future updates, Brewer said, “will greatly enhance/change the experience of the game, yet they are all additional content coming after the initial game, not updates to finish the game.”

Here’s the Miiverse post in full:

Shovel Knight will soon be receiving a title update on Wii U and 3DS that will bring the game up to version 1.1. It’s already out on PC, though Nintendo players will need to wait just a bit longer.

Below are Shovel Knight’s 1.1 update notes in full:

Fuzzy Wuzzy Games is cooking up a patch for Amillo. The first update will improve the game’s frame rate, address bugs, and more.

Here’s what’s planned for the patch in full:

1) Frame Rate issues (more to do with audio asset loading than framerate)
2) Terror Bug in 3-1 (aka sometimes no Worm Boss in 3-1)
3) Bonus 2D levels scoring (some levels are impossible to get achievement Gold at the moment)
4) Progression to 100%. Items 2-3 and some level scoring prevent completionists from getting 100% on the game
5) Some optimizations that should help when running off external USB drives
6) 6-1 missing cube fix (shouldn’t have that missing icon at all – there is no hidden cube in this level
7) Improve colour and sharpness

Fuzzy Wuzzy Games will also address “a few other things we’ve noticed from user comments on Miverse and Twitter.”


The Letter will soon be receiving an update that makes a few additions and changes. TreeFall Studios is including an extra level and new things to find, for example. You can get a look at the upcoming update in the video above.

Wii Sports Club version 4.1 update

Nintendo has prepared a small software update for Wii Sports Club. Version 4.1 addresses the following points:

– Fixes an issue where the results of online Two-Player Team Play tennis matches were not displayed correctly in Play Records
– Introduces additional enhancements to improve the user’s experience and enjoyment

After applying the update, you should see “4.1” displayed in the settings menu.

CoderChild has announced a significant update for Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot. The patch is coming out on July 17 in Europe, though a release date hasn’t been confirmed for the states just yet.

Here’s an overview of the free update straight from CoderChild:

  • On December 26th, Cubit The Hardcore Platformer Robot was released on the American Nintendo 3DS eShop.
  • Many people beat the game in the following days, but there was some other people complaining about the controls of the game.
  • European version was delayed and play tests were performed among some 3DS communities (mainly Espal3DS).
  • Found the root of the complaints and the game controls and feedbacks were reworked. The game was released on EU eShop.
  • As a compensation for the US players not happy with the game controls, CoderChild planned an update.
  • Knowing that the update will come months later after the initial released, and players will surely be playing other games, something had to be done to catch their attention and deliver the new playing experience with this improved controls to those players: NEW contents MUST be ADDED.
  • Worldwide ONLINE RANKINGS were added to the game, but how will the players fill those score tables?
  • A brand new GAME MODE was developed. For this new feature:
    • Levels were redesigned
    • Different level progression
    • New level aesthetics.
  • Realized those 7 character player names were too short and probably many people will match the same names: By COUNTRY score boards were introduced.
  • Still not enough: 11 character player names were introduced in a new profile creation page. Still not enough: Uppercase, lowercase, and more special symbols were introduced.
  • Some small bugs were fixed.
  • Game was submitted to NOE and NOA lotcheck.

CoderChild is celebrating the update’s launch with a 33 percent discount. Additionally, a demo will be released at the same time.
