On Thursday, Booty Diver is heading to the North American Wii U eShop. Have a look at the launch trailer below.

It took Booty Diver longer than expected to hit Wii U. But next week, the game will finally be ready to release on the eShop.

Xavier Orion Games confirmed an April 20 release date via Twitter:

Xavier Orion Games has been working on bringing Booty Diver to the Wii U, and they now say that testing has been completed and they will be submitting the final version to Nintendo. If it passes lot check, the game should release soon on the Wii U.

Xavier Orion Games hasn’t had the easiest time porting Booty Diver for Wii U. However, the indie developer confirmed today that the eShop version is still planned, and is working with TreeFall Studios to make it happen. The two sides will be collaborating on any other Wii U projects from Xavier Orion Games as well.

Xavier Orion Games is still handling actual development and publishing responsibilities. TreeFalls Studio will primarily be tasked with testing.

In a blog update, Xavier Orion Games said: “As we progress we will keep everyone updated on how close Booty Diver is to arriving on its true home Nintendo Wii U.”


Xavier Orion Games has just about wrapped up Booty Diver, and the game will debut on PC early next month. But what about the Wii U version?

In a new website post (read the full thing here), the developer explains:

“The Wii U edition has been the target of this title since it’s inception as even a good chunk of the game’s code has Wii U related things built into it. A Wii U version is still on my plan for this game ,but it comes down to one ,or two things happening to make it a reality. Option A) I make enough from the PC edition to buy the development kit out right. Option B) Someone in the indie dev community familiar with Construct 2/Html5 games transferred to Wii U dev kit via NWF is willing to work with me on getting the game ported over. So the Wii U version is NOT canceled although will obviously release much later than intended.”

Naturally one of those two options will need to be realized. If Xavier Orion Games doesn’t generate enough revenue from the PC release or is unable to work with another developer, then expecting Booty Diver on Wii U may be unrealistic. We’ll have to see how the situation pans out over time.

Here’s the newest trailer for now:
