XType Plus

XType Plus is out now on the Wii U eShop, but PhobosLab isn’t done with the game.

In a Reddit AMA held last week, the developer said that an update is planned, and it will add off-TV play. Co-op is also likely to be come through a patch.

Here’s PhobosLab’s full response when asked about the possibility of co-op being added in the future:

Franky, It’s my first game on a console and I wanted to test the waters first. I didn’t want to develop something for a long time that nobody would be playing in the end.

Reception has been great so far. I’m planing an update and a co-op mode is pretty high on my todo list, along off-tv play. So: yes

XType Plus’ bug has been addressed in Europe. Those who downloaded the game previously should find an update waiting that opens online leaderboards and highscore replays.

A tweet from Nintendo of Europe confirms:


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.


XType Plus is suffering from a major bug at present that causes the Wii U to lock up when accessing the game’s online functionality. This is something that was detected following the game’s launch in Europe a few hours ago.

XType Plus was slated for North America today as well, but due to the freezing issues, it has been delayed. We’ll likely need to wait until a fix has been issued before the title lands in the states.


Are you experiencing freezing issues with XType Plus? If that’s the case, you can rest easy knowing that you’re not alone.

Various comments on Miiverse mention the freezing woes along with other problems caused by bugs. However, XType Plus’ developer is aware of the situation and is looking to address things as soon as possible.


XType Plus is releasing on July 31, developer PhobosLab has confirmed. That launch date applies to both North America and Europe.

XType Plus, a shooter, features the Classic Mode and Plus Mode modes as well as online leaderboards.


PhobosLab has confirmed plans to bring XType Plus to the Wii U eShop. The arcade shooter, first made available for browsers, will head to Nintendo’s console later this year.

PhobosLab’s Dominic Szablewski has confirmed to Nintendo Life that XType Plus will sport a few extra bells and whistles on Wii U – a Plus Mode, online leaderboards, a replay system, general gameplay enhancements, a new menu system, more music, more sound effects, and reworked visuals.
