It might be a good idea to sharpen your Extreme Exorcism skills before the game arrives later this month. The paranormal platformer will be available on September 23 in the Nintendo eShop for Wii U, and it will cost $12.99. In Extreme Exorcism, players are tasked with exterminating all ghosts in a haunted house. There’s a twist to it, too, with each new round ghosts will mimic your prior actions to the point where you’re essentially competing against yourself. The game was featured in the Nindies@Home program in June.
Capcom France is saying that The Great Ace Attorney isn’t planned for a Western release. This piece of news comes from the publisher’s Twitter account, but hopefully it wasn’t referring to all Western regions. The game was released earlier this year in Japan for Nintendo 3DS.

Year Walk arrives on Wii U via the Nintendo eShop on September 17.
“All versions of the game have specific things I like about them, but I think the Wii U version is the best version for me,” Simogo’s Simon Flesser said in a recent interview. “If you didn’t know about the PC or iOS versions, you’d think ‘this is such a Wii U game.’ Me and Magnus from Simogo and Rhod from Dakko Dakko, we like to design for specific platforms or specific interfaces.”
